Have any of you eaten at one of the Brazilian style steakhouses? We took my bride to a festive dinner to celebrate her birthday and retirement a couple months ago. We went to a place called Fogo de Chao (I think) which I was told means 'fire in the ground' after the traditional gaucho style of cooking. Without doubt or any reservation, it was the best feast I've ever had.
The chefs train on a particular meat and cut and become absolute experts. They bring a whole chunk out to the tables and can cut from well done to rare off the same piece. You tell them when to quit. They do beef, of course, lamb, pork, chicken . . . in different cuts and different styles. Every morsel I tasted was superb. It was a real overload on protein. Took me days to recover.
Yes, it was expensive; but for the occasional celebration I highly recommend it. I understand that there several different chains or brands but that they all pretty much follow the same food service model.
If you've eaten in one, tell us about your experience.
