An early morning tip alerted us to a developing situation at Porção, the Park Ave South churrascaria that would be on the Deathwatch were it not for its deep pockets back in Brazil (it's a large chain there). As is made so pristinely clear by these photos, filed at the Eater Photo Desk just moments ago, the restaurant has been seized by the State for non-payment of taxes. Paperwork posted at the venue is dated yesterday, so we imagine the place is at least going to have to sit out the weekend while this gets sorted out. Which should give the very mediocre restaurant pause enough to consider staying closed for good.
Above, the goods (for sale framed, yes); below, more of what happens when you don't pay your taxes.
