Fogo De Chao

How much meat can a meat eater eat when a meat eater eats and eats and eats? For the answer, report to Brazilian churrascaria Fogo de Chão. Here, you'll get all the steak, lamb, pork, and chicken you can eat, served hot from rotisserie skewers brandished by gauchos sprinting from table to table, carving as they go. You tell them whether you want meat by using a little signal chip on your table, when you signal yes, 16 kinds of meat pour on in. There's also a salad bar so absurdly overfilled that it looks like one of those fruit stands in a Herbie the Love Bug movie, before the villain car drives through it. The vast room is as stylish as any other downtown steakhouse, all dark wood and burgundy accents; the wine list is, in its South American offerings, very good. On your first visit, you'll be completely overwhelmed. The second time, though, you'll have found your favorites. Skip desserts--unless you love Key Lime pie, which they do well. Lunch is a good time to get your feet wet, the meaty abundance costs almost half what it does at dinner, though how you'll get through an office afternoon with eight pounds of steak in your gullet is anyone's guess.
