Espetus is San Francisco’s first authentic Brazilian Churrascaria. Its first location opened in the bustling Hayes Valley neighborhood in the fall of 2003. In Espetus’ uniquely traditional atmosphere, a parade of meats is continuously offered and carved tableside by chefs, called “Gaúchos” in deference to churrasco’s cowboy beginnings on the open plains of Brazil in the 1700s. 14 signature cuts of steak, pork, chicken, lamb, and shrimp are grilled over 100% natural mesquite charcoal open flame, giving Espetus the authentic Gaúcho taste other Bay Area churrascarias are missing.
