Fogo de Chao Restaurant Review

: Enter through imposing copper-plated doors --- with a glass cutout of the nation of Brazil --- to find a theatrical environment, complete with large murals depicting scenes of Brazilian gauchos. A two-story wine tower at Fogo de Chão, the most luxurious churrascaria in town, displays much of the cellar’s 8,000-bottle inventory, which boasts both old-world and new-world selections, including many bottles from South America. Diners begin their feast with a formidable buffet of salads, vegetables, smoked fish, prosciutto and cheese, about 30-40 items in total. But the main event begins when you turn a marker on your table from red to green, signaling servers to initiate a parade of more than a dozen meats, all cooked over fire then carved directly onto your plate from sword-like spits. (And it doesn’t stop until you flip your marker to red.) We particularly like when the filet mignon and lamb chops come around. The filet mignon is also served wrapped in bacon, though we’re less fond of this preparation. At nearly $60 per person for dinner (excluding wine and cocktails), Fogo de Chão is no bargain, but you may get more bang for your buck than at a traditional American steakhouse. Guests who prefer seafood can opt for Mango Chilean sea bass, which can be ordered à la carte or with the salad bar. Desserts include a flan that is more intense than its Mexican counterpart, and refreshing papaya cream. Kids ages 7-12 are half price, and children 6 and under are free.

EXCELLENCE

Make sure you try a little bit of everything!!!! They have a huge salad bar that is the freshest I have seen.They also have many different cuts of beef but also serve chicken, pork and lamb. For those of you not familiar with a restaurant like this, it's all you can eat and waiters constantly walk around asking if you need more meat, side dishes, or drinks.
Side dishes that come with your dinner are great. Service is exceptional. Start with a couple of those yummy cheesy bread rolls! mmmm
Highly recommended!
