Fogo de Chao Restaurant Review

: Fogo de Chao is long-established as a mecca of meat. There are outlets all over Brazil and the United States. In late 2013, it finally landed in the Big Apple, and it’s about time. With the feel of one roaring party, the plus-size dining room fills with guests and swarms with roving servers carrying humongous chunks of all-you-can-eat meat on long sword-like skewers, to be sliced off right onto diners’ plates. And with such massive output, one would think the quality of the meat would suffer. It doesn’t. The sirloin, laced with garlic, is nearly addictive, as are the Parmesan-encrusted pork loin and bacon-wrapped chicken breast. Steak, whether it’s rib-eye or sirloin, is surprisingly tender and juicy. There’s also a salad bar and plenty of sides to go with your meat. But, then again, they are not really why you’re here, right? Pair it all with a bottle of vino from the extended list, many of which are from South America.
