America's adept at stealing other nation's signature accomplishments, from the beer of Germany, to the Yahoo Serious of Australia. For the fattest theft yet, try ZED451.
Housed in a mammoth, blonde-wooded former churrascaria, ZED's a "contemporary steakhouse" that swipes Brazil's shining achievement: tableside all-you-can-eat rotisserie. Though meat's the mainstay, the fare's more elevated than the typical house o' skewers: everything from buttermilk-marinated bottom sirloin, to goat-cheese-encrusted rack of lamb, to citrus salmon; and instead of waiters, your grub's trayed out to you by the chefs themselves, a leveling move akin to John DeLorean changing your oil/delivering you comic books in prison. Each option comes with three of 30 pairing sauces (e.g. chimichurri-horseradish, BBQ mustard, chipotle-honey peanut spread), but you're free to pony up to the 'scaria-style "Harvest Table" buffet for any of the other sauces, plus charcuterie, artisanal cheeses, and sides like savory Gruyère bread pudding and Strawberry Rhubarb Spinach Salad (what's good for pies is good for ruffage).
You can also hit the partially-sodded rooftop bar for house-infused cocktails like gingered bourbon lemonade and a cucumber sage martini -- a perfect American invention, made even more American by endless disrespectful tinkering.
