While the World's 50 Best Restaurant awards showered honors on chef Alex Atala's D.O.M. restaurant (see preceding post on Flavors of Brazil), the editorial staff of the Chicago Tribune newspaper's gastronomy blog, The Stew, was busy creating the satirical 50 Worst Restaurants in the World list.
Just as the 50 Best list featured one Brazilian restaurant, so did the 50 Worst list. Coming in at number 15 was Sal e Carvão Brazilian Steak and Wax. That's 3 places higher (or lower?) than D.O.M. placed in the 50 Best list. Impressive? I think so.
Unfortunately, the list didn't give any indication as to the city or location of this restaurant, and I've been unable to find it on Google Maps or in any of the usual restaurant guides. Have any readers of Flavors of Brazil been there? I'd love to hear what it's like.
(Incidentally, the entire list is very funny, and it's worth a few minutes of your time to take a look at it.)
