Whether it's hair of the dog or the just the promising start of a Sunday, SushiSamba Rio's soon-to-be-unveiled Samba Brunch features an enticing extra (actually, three of them). Included in the $16 price tag ($8 for kids under 12, although they won't be getting quite the same benefits) are three complimentary cocktails, perfect for numbing that dull pain or just juicing up your meal.
Starting Sunday, Jan. 25 from 11:30AM-3:30PM, head to the chic River North resto to choose from bloody Marys, mimosas, caipirinhas or freshly squeezed juices (for you teetotalers out there) to accompany such brunch eye-openers as a South American frittata, churrasco and eggs, Kobe sliders and dolce de leite French toast. Or go all in with the "Feijoada Brazilian-Inspired Brunch," a feast featuring a hearty stew made with shredded pork, seared beef, carne seca and black beans served with white rice, collard greens, farofa (a type of grain) and orange slices.
Come to think of it, it's probably best to think of those drinks as a prelude to a nap.
