Fogo de Chão Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant: Fogo de Chão brings traditional Brazilian “churrasco” style dining to San Francisco’s SoMa district. The sprawling corner space pairs syrupy dark woods with woven rope amidst framed monochromes of gaucho culture.

Food & Drinks: A horde of Brazilian trained gaucho chefs artfully twirl between tables, carving sizzling cuts of fire-roasted meats onto the plates of eager diners. Tender sirloin and filet mignon abound, offset by flights of smoky bacon-wrapped chicken breast and crispy linguiça. But it is in cuts of lamb leg and chop that the team excels. The restaurant’s “market table” and traditional feijoada (black bean stew) bar is above par, as buffets go, and the wine list is slender but on point. The bar turns out a worthy caipirinha, but offers only two (albeit local) beers on tap. Airy desserts of crème brûlée, flan and papaya cream are a merciful finish.
