Brazilian Craving

It’s hard to imagine there’s a sillier question than the one we were asked a couple weeks ago at Fogo de Chão, “can we interest you in filet wrapped in bacon?” Come on now, we’re sitting at Philadelphia’s newest steakhouse, a shrine to meat. Do you think we came here for the salad? We came here for the meat. And meat we will have. And if its wrapped in bacon, you better bring lots of it.

And we’ve been craving the bacon wrapped filet since we left Fogo. The delicious steak, the seasoning protected by its bacon shell, its juiciness locked in. From the first bite it is an explosion of flavor.

Fogo de Chão is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. Dinner will set you back $44 for the all you can eat extravaganza, lunch is the same deal but for just $24.
