One of the Dallas area's newest churrascarias-where "gauchos" tote around skewers of roasted, simply seasoned meat and you dine until you explode-bears more than a passing resemblance to Texas de Brazil, which popularized the Brazilian steakhouse concept in the metroplex. The cuts of meat and even the items in the expansive salad bar are similar, which isn't such a bad thing; the quality is top-notch. And there's nothing like spit-roasted leg of lamb, or Rafain's best offering-flank steak, with just enough fat to make to make it exquisitely flavorful. This handsome restaurant, owned by a Brazilian family, offers more native touches than other area churrascarias, including a dessert bar featuring various kinds of candied fruit and Brazilian seafood dishes available as appetizers. Warning: Some meats are heavily salted.
