Pampas Churrascaria Prepares to Open in Palo Alto

Pampas, a Brazilian Churrascaria-style restaurant is about to open in Palo Alto. The owners have done an amazing job with the space, creating a high-end atmosphere but intended to be “family-friendly” and casual. They even have portable DVD players to distract their younger customers. For more photos, check out these galleries: interiors, headshots, and details.

The seating along the sides of the restaurant. The low backlit brick wall creates a nice texture and adds to the tactile ambience.

The raised central seating area. There’s additional seating under this raised area that’s sunk into the ground, but that wasn’t photo-friendly yet.

Side seating with a translucent screen separating from the bar/lounge area.
