When ready for the main course, guests flip a two-sided disc located at each seat from red to green, and gauchos (servers) begin to carve tableside a selection of meats grilled to perfection over natural wood charcoal – a tradition passed down through generations of gauchos from Southern Brazil.

When a break is needed in the unending flow of mouthwatering meats, guests simply turn their disc back to red.
