One of the most interesting dining options on the Epic, is the Moderno Restaurant, a carnivores dream. If you are unfamiliar as I was, with this Brazilian style fare, the waiters come around in a continuous carousel, with meats they serve table side. Until you say stop, you are treated to a delicious parade of selections, as you can see by the menu below. There is also a magnificent salad bar to start off your meal. Really, one of the nicest I have seen at sea. We really enjoyed this dining experience
