This Brazilian churrascaria offers some of the best grilled steak in midtown. As chefs circulate with skewers of exotic meat, try some less carnivorous delicacies like their fried plantains and roasted pineapple slices. While vegans might be put off, The Copa does offer a diverse salad bar as well. They also have live Brazilian music and dancers.


After a hearty steak dinner, cut through that red meat with a made-to-order juice or smoothie at Fresh’s Eglinton location. Into the healthy eating lifestyle before it was cool, all their food is made from scratch and without any chemicals not found in Mother Nature.
