Chima Steakhouse, 8010 Towers Crescent Drive, Suite 100, Vienna, VA, 703-595-7755 (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [WaPo | Yelp]
The new Brazilian steak house, churrascaria, very stylish, draws a mod crowd of wealthy Latinos and sometimes Arabs. Lots of fun, not cheap, the lamb and the pork caked in cheese are the best. The salads could be improved. I like Fogo de Chao better, but because of proximity, and a Brazilian-loving daughter, I’ll end up going here yet again.

We had a great time at this place. Our waiter — Billy– was wonderful.
The beef rib stew in red wine was great. The salad bar was impressive. The food from the grill was delicious. Save yourself for the Sirloin.
We were hungry and we left satisfied. How many times does that happen – especially off of route 95 going South?
There were many offerings so I suggest getting a little bit of everything and then going back for the things that you like best and talk to Billy, if he is there. He really knows what is great. If he is not your waiter, ask if he is there and talk to him about the most yummy things there. You will not regret it.
