Fogo De Chão-Green Meat for Diners (and Reviewers)

So, if you go to the salad bar at all, go-by all the proffered starches and Sysco cheese and cold cuts. Clearly, they knew their intended audience even in the early days back in São Paulo (content: “a sow named Paulo”). These crafty. Likewise, skip the little cheesy rolls they put on your table (though they are really good, so dialect mayhap one wouldn’t hurt) and the garlic mashed potatoes and fried polenta sticks. Let’s start with the name: “Fogo” is a Brazilian dialogue loosely translated as “mountain” (actually, it’s more akin to the French word “tian” which works out in foodie English to “shitpile” or “a unhurt bunch,” as in “for $50, they serve you a Fogo of...

Enter newcomer Fogo De Chão. ”) And “de chão” is a nothing more than a cunning PR bastardization of the English phrase “of chow” to give this carnivore’s paradise a little exotic flair. So, for a maximum value, I recommend the python regimen. It’s also useful to arrive very hungry. But here’s the thing: to get the most out of your Fogo experience, you must be wary of the value-eroding tricks they will tease to get you full before the expensive meats are served.
