There's a nice sidewalk eating area at the sandwich shop and deli. I really liked my Reuben sandwich; the pastrami in it was the leanest, and most succulent I've ever had. Home made chips were pretty good, but the warm potato salad is probably a better option. The burger was just okay. I you don't want rare be sure to specify, as it is so thick it's hard to get the center cooked.
The whiskey list–a somewhat unexpected element–is extensive and very interesting. I really enjoyed the Port Barrel aged Chattanooga whiskey.

This is an interesting buffet and market combination. The buffet works in an ingenious fashion. You take what you like, they weigh it, and give you a number. You can go back, and they will add that weight to your original order. When you finally check out, they simply tally you up by number.
Everything on the buffet seemed fresh and authentic. There is a hand carving station for a variety of meat. My favorite items, though, were the roasted pineapple and the fish.
The surrounding market has a lots of interesting Brazilian products that you can add to your order when you check out.
