Brazilian restaurant opens in Astoria, offers barbecue buffet


April 3, 2017 By Hannah Wulkan

A new Brazilian restaurant has opened its doors in Astoria.

Mina’s Grill, a Brazilian barbecue, held its grand opening last Thursday at 29-03 Broadway in Astoria. The new restaurant took the place of a different Brazilian restaurant that occupied the space until late last year called the Carioca Grill.

The new restaurant offers a self-service Brazilian barbecue buffet, with a variety of spit-roasted meats and various sides, salads and desserts.

The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. from Monday through Wednesday, and from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. from Thursday through Sunday.

Though only open a few days, it has already been getting positive reviews, and is rated with five stars on Yelp with five reviews so far.

“I came here today for the first time ever. I have to admit I’m pretty impressed,” one user wrote on Yelp. “This is by far the best Brazilian style buffet I’ve been to in Astoria. I’m so happy this place has opened right next to my house, I will definitely be back often.”

Not the first time I’ve heard about people reporting about Yelp/Google/Zagat reviews.

That’s like saying someone shouldn’t be posting up what ESPN wrote about last night’s Knicks/Bulls game.
