A couple of weekends ago we decided to celebrate being alive, young, and healthy by going to Fogo De Chão. This authentic Brazilian steakhouse, also known as a rodizio, delivers a parade of delicious food meal after meal. Fogo De Chão's gaucho chefs brilliantly grill 16 cuts of meat, which are then served table side. Flip your coaster to green and watch as the meat comes to you, flip it to red and take a break.
Before the parade of meat, comes Fogo De Chão's salad bar. This is not your ordinary salad bar, it is packed with fresh mozzarella, parmigiano reggiano, asparagus, smoked salmon, prosciutto, sun dried tomatoes, and a bowl of crispy bacon among other delicious selections. We must admit it was difficult not to fill up on just the salad bar but we knew there was more to come...

After the salad bar come the stars of the Fogo De Chão show...skewers full of beef, chicken, lamb, and pork served table side.
All 16 cuts of meat are cooked to perfection, the guest can choose the temperature of the meat. The Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon was absolutely delicious...one of our favorites of the night! The pork ribs were tender and well seasoned...melt in your mouth good!

Last but not least, to accompany our meal we ordered the traditional Brazilian drink Caipirinha. This refreshing, mojito like drink is made with sugar cain brandy, lime, and sugar. This drink paired perfectly with the delicious flavors of the meal!
Fogo De Chão is a welcomed addition to the Boston food scene. This restaurant is perfect for large groups or to impress a date. Dinner will set you back about $48.50 per person but trust us...it is worth it! You can eat as much or as little as you want...when we thought we were done, our server actually encouraged us to take a break, grab a clean plate, and eat some more! Fogo De Chão delivers a fun, indulgent, delicious eating experience that every meat lover out there would love!
