It was bitterly cold when I left Brazikat Brazilian Steak & Seafood House (172 Carondelet Plaza, Clayton; 314-727-1007), and I wanted nothing more than to retire to the warmth of my living room, a glass of bourbon in hand, my faithful dog curled at my feet. So preoccupied was I with this scenario that I didn't notice the old man standing in my path. I write "standing," but truly, he was hunched forward at the waist, and that only with great effort. What's more, his shoulders were stooped and his head curled so that he appeared to be studying a spot at the center of his sunken chest.
He looked like nothing so much as a living comma splicing the darkness....
My review of Brazikat is now available online.
