TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/02/14 -- COPA Brazilian Steakhouse, an authentic Brazilian churrasco offering a most unique dining experience, has opened in the heart of Toronto's entertainment district on Adelaide St.
The 250 seat downtown Toronto restaurant is an experience like no other. With samba dancers, silkists, shimmer walls and heart thumping music, COPA is a new take on a lounge crossed with dinner theatre. "COPA is more than just a restaurant, it's an experience," said Jeremia Rudan, Owner/Founder of COPA Brazilian Steakhouses. "The Brazilian culture is intoxicating and vibrant. I wanted to share this excitement with everybody and the best way to do this was to create an authentic Brazilian Steakhouse. I am proud to have another COPA opening. It's amazing to be a part of the growth and positive momentum in this dynamic city."
Jeremia and Michael Rudan's first Copacabana restaurant began in Niagara Falls ten years ago, and has swiftly grown to encompass a location at Yonge & Eglinton, and now on Adelaide St. just west of University. The Rudan brothers spared no expense in creating an ambiance that fits the food. Between the servers, decor and entertainment, COPA offers an unprecedented experience for those looking for a stimulating and exciting meal. "It is not just the menu that sets us apart, we take pride in sharing with the public a little part of Brazil," said Rudan. "Our company's mission is to be ambassadors to Brazil. This is something we have accomplished in all our locations."
The menu features a selection of "rodizio", which includes various meats and galleria, or the galleria-only option. The meat is prepared in the traditional Brazilian method, over an open charcoal flame, and carved tableside. The extensive galleria is easily a full meal with a wide range of Canadian and Brazilian favorites, including items such as crisp greens, oven fresh breads, soups, cheeses and pasta.
COPA's authentic Brazilian Churrasco, served rodizio style, ranges from various beef cuts, pork, rack of lamb, and Hawaiian chicken, with 18 different types of meat offered. Servers roam to each table with skewers of piping hot, roasted meat, ready to slice. The server's continue to serve each table until the diner flips an indicator card, designed with a green (go) indicator and a red (stop) indicator. Guests can also indicate whether they would like their choice of meat as well done.
A full bar provides standard and specialty drinks, with an impressive wine list. The dining prices are set with weekdays being $37, Friday is $42 and Saturday is $45, which includes galleria, rodizio grill, vibrant entertainment, and cinnamon pineapple for dessert.
The two storey restaurant features an open-view grill in the dining room, as well as a bar and lounge area with flat screen TV's, ideal for watching the World Cup and other games. COPA is located at 230 Adelaide Street West, Toronto, ON. For reservations or more information, please call 647.748.3211 or visit www.thecopa.ca.
