Fogo de Cḥo РMeatgasm

Kirsten Henri visits Fogo de Chão and finds the Brazilian Steakhouse is playing it safe. But that doesn’t mean that the chain isn’t worthwhile.

Quite the contrary. It’s good, it’s fun and it’s a handsome spot to dine. It’s all high ceilings, rich walnut browns and tall, gilt columns, and rows of wine stacked behind glass. It’s an appealing renovation of the historic former headquarters of jeweler J.E. Caldwell’s.

It’s also a fine alternative to any of the other chain steakhouses in town because, despite its exotic Portuguese name, the food is about as adventurous as dining at the Palm. It’s the old steakhouse formula: big meat, big red wine in a big macho setting. The only challenge you’ll find here is pronouncing Fogo de Chão properly.
