Description: Marcos Bassi, son of Italian, grew up in the neighborhood of Bras...
Marcos Bassi, son of Italian, grew up in the neighborhood of Bras, downtown Sao Paulo. His history with the meat started early, at age eight, when selling beef kids in the neighborhood where he lived. After a few years, Mark and his mother Mafalda, acquired a space in the Municipal Market of Sao Paulo. Worked hard there, to acquire the butcher Mr Prachedes in Humaita Street, already in the neighborhood of Bixiga and transform the Meat House Bassi, where met the rich immigrant city, as a structure, quality and customer care services. Gradually managed to implement a barbecue in the Meat House so they could test for over there even their creations. It was when they started selling sandwiches and Store cuts already baked. The history of prime meat was born there, along with the story of Marcos Bassi, just to differentiate the quality and price of products Marcos Bassi. In 1978 born the "Meat Slaughtering Central Noble Bassi" on May 13th Street, now with a special place to serve some people with their tastings of special breeds and cuts.

Throughout life, Marcos Bassi learned in practice all about cuts and other technical details such as blood supply, softness and texture. As a craftsman, his hands left cuts enshrined as Candy, made from the rump kernels, and the steak butcher. Also pioneered the vacuum process and meat maturation in Brazil The Temple of meat is then perpetuates as a result of 50 years of a life, invested and dedicated to specialty Bassi: meat.

Best Food, Service a bit slow.

Probably top 5 beef places in São Paulo. Had "OJO de BIFE" - to die for. Very tender and juicy. The "pupunha" ( fresh Palm Tree heart) is a MUST try! The price is ok as you are getting good quality. Nice place, high ceilings. You can also buy meats to take home, some exotic stuff...

We come here every year and look forward to eating here. Impeccable service. We always have the picanha rare and the costellos and an arugula salad. For us - it is the best steakhouse we have ever been too. Are here last night and going back there tomorrow. Very happy to see Mr. Basti's legacy continuing.

The atmosphere is pretty cold. The service was ok and attentive, however nothing special. The older man in a suite trying to put anything on your bill is VERY annoying. The food was good, but overall the restaurant seems overrated and it's expensive.

This is my favorite meat restaurant in town. The meat is always very tender, and juicy . My favorite dishes are "fraldinha" and the baby beef. Order, as a side dish, "pupunha" palm roasted. Simply wonderful.

Yes truly a temple to meat. Some very interesting cuts which you won't find elsewhere and meat was cooked to perfection. I still find the quality of the meat in Brazil a bit below that of Uruguay and Argentina but this is minor criticism. Excellent and friendly service. A very good choice for meat in São Paulo at a very... More

Staying in Bela Vista

Neighborhood Profile
Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighborhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
