Located in the old North Point Diner building, Galeto Brazilian Steakhouse has moved in and cornered the market on a fantastic dining experience.
Northside Woman was invited to try out the new steakhouse, and we were very impressed with the Brazilian all-you-can-eat rodízio experience. Mike, the general manager, was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed.
From the moment we sat down, the service was excellent. A “mobile bartender” was moving through the restaurant, offering authentic Brazilian cocktails. We chose the Caipirinha, Brazil's national cocktail, made with cachaça, sugar and lime. It proved a perfect accompaniment to the array of meats, cheeses and fish to come.
Galeto’s gourmet bar overflowed with salads ranging from crab salad and grilled eggplant to Brazilian potato salad and tropical mango. But this is much more than a “salad bar.” The cornucopia of hot and cold dishes included Brazil’s traditional black bean stew, as well as chicken stroganoff, seafood like roasted salmon, mussels and scallops, a variety of cheeses and charcuterie.
Then came the churrasco — skewers and skewers of succulent grilled meats brought to our table by gauchos. The quality of the meat was outstanding and the seasonings were all delicious. If you want a specific kind of meat, the skewer-wielding gauchos will bring it to you. I preferred the lollipop lamb chops, with a side of the chimichurri — it was simply amazing!
Our experience at the restaurant was excellent, and we are looking forward to returning. It would be a great spot for large groups, and family-friendly too. Just go hungry!
