(Charleston, SC) A new restaurant has moved into Charleston’s historic district. Galpão Gaucho located at 167 East Bay Street, is a traditional Brazilian steakhouse inspired by the Gaucho culture and the authentic dining tradition of the Brazilian cowboy. Centuries ago, the gauchos of Brazil formed a culture all their own, complete with a distinctive cuisine and a characteristic love of the land of South America. “We’ve always focused on growing fresh food, caring for the livestock and valuing our roots,” says Director of Operations, Jovani Gava. “This shows in the food we make and long-held traditions we keep.”

The Galpão Gaucho menu is made up of grilled meats and fresh salads, and offers 17 different cuts of meats, ranging from beef, pork, chicken, lamb, and seafood, which are served tableside by gaucho chefs. The meats are complimented by a delicious gourmet salad bar including hearts of palm, artichoke hearts, sweet beets, asparagus, imported cheeses, and cured meats. Side dishes like garlic mashed potatoes, caramelized bananas, traditional rice and black beans, and Brazilian cheese bread made with cassava flour are the perfect complement to the unlimited continuous service meal. For dessert, patrons can choose from a number of gourmet and house made desserts, which include crème brulee, Brazilian style flan, chocolate molten cake, and papaya cream.

Galpão Gaucho‘s bar is a warm and inviting space offering happy hour specials on a variety of fine wines, cocktails, and beers. The beverage program features full bar service, diverse cocktail offerings, and beer on draft and by the bottle. The hand selected wine list featuring wines from all over the world but with a focus on Napa Valley wineries. The bar area also offers a la carte options featuring meats, salads, and sides from the main menu.
