The appearance of this excellent churrascaria corresponds to an uptick in Brazilian immigration to Newark's famed Ironbound neighborhood, which still retains much of its Portuguese small-town feel. The mile-long buffet at Brasilia Grill has good stuff and mediocre stuff, and it's your duty to distinguish between the two, but there's no mistaking the prize meat that comes around on swords with frantic periodicity. Top sirloin, bacon-wrapped turkey, and "roast beef" are the most compelling cuts. Wait for them.
