Fine Dining Guide

Agora Churrascaria

1830 Main St
Irvine, CA 92614
(949) 222-9910

Direct from the Southern Brazilian high plains comes a centuries-old way of cooking, where gauchos spit-roasted large portions of beef, pork, lamb, and poultry over the glowing coals of open fire pits, preserving the meats’ natural juices and rich flavors. Soon, brick grills replaced pit fires, and the Churrascaria, the house of barbeque, became the gathering place for feasting and friendship. Enjoy the sumptuous taste of this rich dining tradition at Agora Churrascaria, where feast and festivity come together to delight all the senses. Experience attentive service in the “Rodizio” (continuous) style, as our warm and spirited, gaucho-attired waiters move from table to table with skewers of succulent meats, carving up to 16 different cuts for hungry, happy guests. We roast our meats to Churrasco perfection in our custom-designed, 100% wood charcoal grill, and season with rock salt to enhance their individual flavors.

"Basilic is a secret window into the past, a virtual time machine to another era somewhere high in the Alps. Keeping it classic – while also remaining relevant – is an extraordinarily difficult balancing act. Rare is the restaurant that pulls this off without eventually feeling dated. Basilic understands this perfectly and continues to feel fresh even when serving something as simple as a slice of cheese. Every meal here involves at least two paper doilies, and the wine list is strictly, unapologetically French. Dated? Not in the slightest."  Brad A. Johnson, Restaurant Critic - Orange County Register
