Boizao (pronounced "boy-zoun") opened a couple years ago along Boy Scout Boulevard to capture some of the Tampa International Airport/Westshore business crowd. It's a vast, slick space (they may serve 1,000 diners a day) with a festive, all-you-can-eat party vibe. The waft of rotisseried meats greets you at the door; a huge salad bar buffet anchors the airy room; the lavish glassed-in wine cellar holds enticing heavy-hitters and oversized bottles. But eating at a classic Brazilian churrascaria is a little like fielding a series of telemarketing calls during dinner. Every minute or two you have to stop what you're doing — eating, talking — because someone is repeatedly offering you meat on a long skewer: Oh, yes, please. No, none of that, thanks. Also open for lunch on weekdays.
