The meal was an African Vegan-Themed menu. All the courses together provided excellent levels of spices and textures.

Texas de Brazil – Brazilian Steakhouse Brings It

I always compare the smell of a clean restaurant to clean laundry. You may not know exactly how it's supposed to smell, but you know it when it's there.
