Fogo de Chão


Today’s most awesome lunch was the result of a small bet with a friend of mine – don’t gamble kids!  I lost the wager, so we agreed on dining at Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse as payment.  If you haven’t been, this place is wonderful for meat lovers.  You start off by getting comfortable and ordering drinks.  You then make a quick run to the salad bar which is enough for a large meal in itself.  When you are ready for the fire roasted meats to arrive, turn the card at your table to the green side up.  A parade of wait staff with a variety of delicious hot meats on skewers will begin to arrive at your table and hand carve the selections of your choice.  When you need a break, just turn the card to the red side up.  My favorite was the Alcatra, a “special cut of top sirloin originating in the steakhouses of Southern Brazil”.  We also tried the Caipirinha, which is Brazil’s national cocktail, made with cachaca (sugar cane hard liquor), sugar, and lime.  The dining experience was superb, and I can’t wait to go again!
