If you’ve never experienced a Brazilian steakhouse, here’s one tip: bring your appetite.
Fogo de Chao brings the Brazilian steakhouse experience to the U.S. First opening its doors in Porto Alegre, Brazil in 1979, the company has expanded rapidly all over the Western hemisphere. Regulars at the Washington, D.C. outpost rave about the many exquisite cuts brought to the table here, including the luscious filet mignon wrapped with bacon and the exceptional lamb chops.
The way it works here is that you pay a flat fee per person – around $50 for dinner – and then servers come to the table with meat as it comes off the grill. You can take whatever you like, but make sure to leave room for the good stuff. The meal also includes a well-stocked salad bar.
