Fogo de Chao, which has been an institution on I-Drive for two years now, is well know for its meat. Fresh cuts of meat like beef, lamb, chicken, and sausage are fire grilled and served fresh from a skewer by skilled gauchos. As if that isn't enough, there's an extensive, upscale salad bar where your inner vegetarian will fight your carnivore side. To see the feast, go here.
I love a typical Fogo de Chao dinner, so I was a bit shocked when I heard that the restaurant now has a bar menu packed with appetizers that you order as you wish instead of going for the massive all-you-can-eat feast. Really, why mess with perfection? I was invited out to give the new menu items a try, and even though the salad bar and skewers looked as wonderful as ever, I can give a hearty thumbs up to the new offerings.
These photos should help you imagine just how tasty the new bar menu really is. If you'd like to try it for yourself, it's served at both lunch and dinner time. You can order it in the bar area, where you'll also be tempted with a delicious array of drinks (jump to this article for some examples), and it's also available in the main restaurant.
