Fogo de Chao
Posted by mysterymeat on 12/25/2006
Having done many of these types I appreciate Fogo. The side dishes are fine. Request the black beans, better than the mashed potatoes that come served to gringos. Potatoes definitely need pepper. The meats are great, all Angus. Anyone who says bland is a "FOODIE" and a worshiper of Sietsema. A1 is available. No Bearnaise/Hollandaise not available when I went. We were there for MEAT anyway, not SAUCES. Simple carnivorous pleasures. Awesome service in a different perspective. Lose the food critics, SCREW the critics. A veritable meat market for all with option for salad bar only people. The place to go for a group wanting to gorge and celebrate. NOT for VALENTINE'S COUPLES! No intimacy, just fun and indulgence!

If you like food this is the place to be!!! I had a dinner outing with several friends for my husbands birthday and there wasn't any disappointed faces in the bunch. The selection of meats was wonderful. Even my cousin, an extreme vegitarian, enjoyed the salad bar. This WILL be put on my restaurant list!

This is a gorgeous restaurant with a wonderful name that did not live up to its hype. Having lived all over Brazilf, other local Brazilian Restaurants (Green Field BBQ - Rockville, Grill from Ipanema - Adams Morgan, Malibu Grill - VA - 2 sites) are not only more authentic --both in flavors and in the style of the restaurant, but also are certainly not going to make you choke on the tab. The buffet was "fancy" --but indistinguishable from many hotel restaurants. Service was pleasant -- when you could flag them down from the many tables they were supporting on a busy weekend night. More importanly, one had to request black-beans and rice!!-- a staple usually found at the buffet in both Brazil and in US restaurants. When we finally received these dishes, the serving sizes were quite small and flavors- unremarkable. Unless you enjoy going out to places only to "be seen" or for the atomosphere, this restaurant would not be our first choice for either family or out of town visitors. (PS: Price does count!)
