Fogo de Chão Restaurant Review

: Located in the Irvine Spectrum, this outpost of the upscale Brazilian steakhouse chain uses dark woods and intimate seating to block out the area's shopping center bustle. The ambience focuses attention on the all-you-can-eat churrasco dining experience, with gauchos strolling the space offering cuts of roasted meats, including beef, lamb and chicken. Dinner guests can accompany these cuts with seasonal selections from the soup, salad and vegetable bar. The wine list features an impressive array of varietals from around the globe. Corporate types can stop in during the week for a power lunch, and shoppers can drop by on the weekends and enjoy brunch service.
