Tucano's Brazilian Grill, Colorado Springs, CO

On Thursday April 5, 2012 Tucano's opened their 5th restaurant.  The others are in ID, 2 in UT and 1 in Albuquerque, NM.  A few days before there was a blurb on the morning news and I was excited to have a new and different restaurant that is not like the normal chain eaterys here. 

I didn't know what to expect when we entered but was pleasantly surprised.  The concept is a huge salad / pasta etc bar and meats / fish / veggies & pineapple served at the table, some carved from the spit it was roasted on.   

3 sided salad bar with the freshest, well stocked bowls.  Everything has elegant, printed labels which is some cases are very important identifying each goodie, like the Edamame salad!

Hard to see - sorry but the meat rods are on the bottom and the pineapple on the top right. 
Top sirloin hunks.  I had an outside piece and it was fantastic.  

Each place setting has a pair of tongs that helps the server remove the items from the skewers
Chicken hearts!!

There are probably about 12 different things served tableside including turkey wrapped in bacon, skirt steak, glazed ham, spicy chicken thighs, white fish with mango glaze (our favorite), brisket plus a few things we were not served.

The meal is sorta pricey for just a lunch - almost $14.00 per person so with ice tea and coffee and tip it was about $43.00.  For us that is alot for lunch for no special occasion.
