Hot Hot Heat: Valentine’s Day at Agora Churrascaria

Buck tradition but keep all the romance this Valentine’s Day, because though Agora Churrascaria might not top the list of romantic restaurants, there’s nothing like the experience that you can have eating traditional Brazilian steak. Like cupid puts arrows through the hearts of lovers, the chefs at Agora expertly skewer over a dozen meats every day. And for Valentine’s Day they’ve got the perfect finishing touch to the unforgettable meal.

Unlike popular prix fixe options at other restaurants, Agora offers its complete menu for Valentine’s Day. With 16 meats being served tableside by their traditional gauchos, you’ll be trying more options than you can remember. From chicken to beef and pork (even seafood), there’s something for every taste and each and every one is prepared in an open kitchen just steps away. In addition, the complete salad buffet — with hot and cold options — will be available, too.

In addition, they’ll be serving a special Brazilian flan and chocolate covered strawberry for two and will be offering Moet Chandon’s Brut Imperial for $51 per diner. Though it might be difficult to share whispered secrets with gauchos carrying your food to you, they say there’s no aphrodisiac like a good meal.

Agora Churrscaria is located at 1830 Main St., in Irvine. For more information or to make reservations for Valentine’s Day, call 949.222.9910 or visit their official web site at
