Our History

The cuisine served at Minas is rooted in the food culture of Southeast Brazil, where traditional churrasco-style barbequed meats and sausage are served alongside sumptuous local vegetable dishes, including okra, bean dishes, and savoury squash. In the early days of the Minas Gerais colony, settlers learned to blend traditional Portugese spices with the rich produce of the land, including fruits like pineapple and banana in the often rich, meaty dishes that the area became famous for. Chef Jose Montes is committed to the authenticity of real Brazilian food—a fusion cusine from the beginning—and employs traditional techniques and spicing to bring each dish to the modern palate. At Minas, history is in every bite.
