The new kid on the restaurant block is Tudo de Bom at McCully Shopping Center, featuring Brazilian churrasco de rodizio (traditional rotisserie barbecue prepared over an open fire, skewered and carved at the table).

Several cuts of beef, Brazilian sausage, lamb chops, chicken drumsticks, pork ribs and pork loin are on the menu; salads and shellfish, too.

It's an all-you-can-eat concept (exclusive of dessert and drinks) with lunch at $12.95, dinner Mondays through Thursdays at $18.95 and weekend meals at $21.95. Reservations: 942-0267.

Oh, and the name? Roughly translated: "It's all good."
