Brea's downtown area on Birch Street is well known for eateries, fine dining and great eats. The Carvao Grill a South American steakhouse is one of my personal favorites. My last trip was for lunch a few weeks ago on what I call "earthquake day", July 29. Immediately after the shaker my power was out at the office and at home, so what else was there to do but have lunch?
Then I received a cell call from fellow Rainer Marlene Bridges making sure things were good in Brea, it felt like we were sitting on top the epicenter although it was next door in beautiful Chino Hills.
We met in downtown since they still were up and running with power. We had an outstanding lunch at the Carvao Gill on Birch Street. There's indoor and outdoor dinning to choose from. The proprietor Piaggio (aka Coli) waw born and raised in Argentina He's also the perfect host. I took this photo of him out in front of his restaurant one day during the Brea Farmer's Market held on Tuesdays. As for my lunch the serving size was so large it became my dinner the next day.
Then to our nice surprise Coli sent us over a very special dessert.
If you're looking for a wonderful place of lunch or dinner in Brea try the Carvao Grill, check out their menu here.
Oh just in case you were wondering, yes there is a full bar. And Chad to the right make a great martini. And no, it wasn't for lunch.
So give it a try, you won't be disappointed! Oh, how about dinner at a movie? You know the Carvao is just across the street from the Edwards Theaters. Save your movie ticket and get a discount on dinner at Caravo, what deal!
It's interesting to know Caravo means charcoal in Portuguese ~ It describes a ways food is grilled in Argentia and Brazil. You will love it!
