Zebu Grill

"Upper Eastsiders in search of 'something a little different' hit this 'relaxed' Brazilian specializing in 'interesting', 'flavorful' churrasco; 'congenial' service and 'a couple of their caipirinhas' confirm that this somewhat 'hidden away' spot is 'worth repeat visits.'" - ZAGAT 2011

"I took the Ms. there and we had the churrasco for two. Excellent choice. There were plenty of seats as we went there early. Don't let the neighborhood (above 86th Street) keep you from going. You should be safe in that general area."
