I absolutely love Galpao Gaucho, compared to espetus, pampas, Taurinjs, and Fogo de chao. I still have yet to Show de Carnes. Galpao always provides excellent service in a nice ambiance. When your sign is green, the servers and food comes at an overwhelming pace at times. My favorites are the grilled cheese, picanha , beef rib, spicy sirloin, and ribeye. Must also mention the candied bacon and chicken soup. Will definitely repeat again!

Wonderful meal. The food was exceptional, ambience lovely, and the service beyond good. It was our first experience. The Caesar salad was certainly enough for two people , and maybe four. I shouldn’t have ordered the truffle fries because it was more than we could eat. The filets were perfect. My friend enjoyed the beef marrow and the fried rice. Next time we’ll know better how to order. I bought a gift certificate for my son and his wife for their anniversary.

In its bright eatery with wooden accents, an open kitchen and exposed brick walls, Orchard City Kitchen serves modern American fare crafted by Michelin-starred chef, Jeffrey Stout. Sensational vegetarian entrées include cauliflower "steak" with lemon butter and croutons, mac and cheese with shishito peppers and herbed farro risotto. Orchard City Kitchen also has a variety of seafood entrées, such as the grilled and chilled prawns with a fish sauce vinaigrette and scallop sashimi with macadamia nuts, as well as meaty dishes like the KFC (Korean fried chicken), the pork dumplings with roasted mushrooms and the country fried steak with sausage gravy. Inventive meals deserve an equally inventive cocktail. Try the honeymoon suite, with vodka, raspberry rhubarb and lemon.
