Fogo de Chão Restaurant Review: Take time to savor each of the grilled meat and poultry selections --- not to mention the extensive salad bar that includes aged cheeses, cured meats, artichokes, hearts of palm and jumbo asparagus. With a two-sided disk given to each table, diners set the tempo for how quickly or leisurely the gaucho chefs should carve meat tableside. Choices vary nightly, with beef, lamb, pork and sausage selections such as filet mignon, Prime rib-eye, leg of lamb, pork filets, ribs and well-seasoned sausages, each cooked over an open flame. The setting is impressive with dark woods, white cloth-covered tables, stained glass, colorful murals and an open concept that still allows for private dining nooks. Brazilian wines star, yet there is a wide selection from other countries to accompany meals. A salad-bar-only option is available. Although servings are generous and filling, few can resist authentic South American flan.
