The brainchild of Marcos Bassi, a former butcher turned restaurateur and radio host, Templo da Carne (Temple of Meat) makes no bones about its specialty. Contrafilé (sirloin) and famed Brazilian picanha (rump cap) are among the highlights. Unlike at all-you-can-eat churrascarias, dining here is an à la carte experience. The decor departs from the nostalgic interiors found in Bixiga's surrounding Italian cantinas without entirely abandoning the neighborhood's traditional coziness. The wait for a table regularly exceeds an hour, so try to arrive before your hunger peaks.
