Midwest is winner in 2003 and 2007 in Best Of Boston
2003 Best Brazillian Restaurant
In Brazil, restaurants like Midwest Grill are everywhere, which helps to explain why Brazilians traditionally consume their largest meals at lunch: Feasts like those served up by this Inman Square establishment take time to digest. The format is all-you-can-eat, and the fare centers on grilled meat: skewers of sausages, pork loin, lamb, chicken hearts, and sirloin, carved by hand at your table until you finally beg the friendly servers to bring you no more. The accompanying buffet features salad fixings, fluffy mashed potatoes, tasty casseroles, and what might be the best rice and beans outside of Rio. It does not include dessert, but you won’t mind—you’ll be too full anyway.
2007 Best Brazillian Restaurant
It’s easy—and frankly quite enjoyable—to overstuff yourself at this all-you-can-eat churrascaria. Enthusiastic protein purveyors circle the dining rooms brandishing skewers with steak, kielbasa, smoky linguiça, and tender pork with crackly skin. They all but slap you on the back when you agree to another slice of meat (especially the chicken heart), and look rather downcast when you send them away. While you’re keeping them happy, make sure to save room for the buffet of sweet plantains and prepared salads, which has just enough options to satisfy any vegetarian tagging along with you.
