BoiBrazil in Winter Park is closed, perhaps temporarily, perhaps not.
The restaurant, a second location for the churrascaria located on International Drive, will “reopen in January,” according to a man who answered the phone at the I-Drive restaurant. (The Winter Park location’s phone seems to be disconnected.) However, according to a Winter Park source, the space on Lyman Avenue has a “for lease” sign on it. So, maybe a good spot for a pop-up restaurant that only wants to operate for three weeks?
More likely, it’s closed permanently. Previously, the Winter Park restaurant was Nelore, also a churrascaria featuring all-you-can-eat grilled meats sliced at the table by skewer-wielding gauchos. Really more of a concept for Tourist World than Park Avenue.
Although the name of the restaurant sounds like the title of a salacious magazine, boi is the Portuguese word for ox. So, makes sense.
A lot more sense than putting a “for lease” sign on a restaurant you plan to reopen in a month.
