It’s been the talk of the town and now Viva Brazil has finally opened up its doors in Newcastle. It’s taken over where La Vina was on Grey Street.
The Brazillian restaurant launched with dancers, music, canapés, cocktails and drinks on the house in a VIP launch party recently. The place was packed.
Viva Brazil is an award winning, Brazilian style Steakhouse, with venues in other cities – Newcastle being their fifth. They’re famed for serving over 15 select cuts of meat, all carved at your table by their Passadors (meat carvers).
You decide the pace of your meal with discs which are provided for each diner. One side is Green which means more please; and the other side is Red, which you can turn to when you have finished or simply wish to take a break. So basically, the restaurant is a meat lovers paradise.
If you’re like me and need some greens with your meal, they also have a Salad Island with 20 cold selections and 8 traditional hot dishes.
Overall, the launch was impressive, with plenty of drinks and canapés to fill you up. I highly recommend the cinnamon pineapple!
Although the venue is underground, it didn’t feel too enclosed or dark as there was plenty of space and bright Brazillian style street-art on the walls. The bar also made the venue look like it would be popular to those who just fancied popping in for a drink too.
In the meantime, why not check it out yourself. Visit the website here for more details.
Ciao for now! x
