Fogo De Chao
A pick in the Brazilian category by Social Media Marketing Manager Emily Romero (@eatmelasvegas) and Esther’s Kitchen Chef/Owner James Trees, this Brazilian steakhouse with gaucho chefs is a carnivore’s festival. The concept originated in Brazil and came to the US in 1997. Don’t be surprised to find several Brazilian natives serving your fine cuts of meat.
Like most Brazilian steakhouses, you can eat as much meat as you like. Gauchos slice off fire-roasted meats tableside — picanha (signature sirloin), filet mignon, ribeye, fraldinha (Brazilian sirloin), cordeiro (lamb) and more — until your full stomach forces you to surrender. But that all-you-can-eat experience actually begins at the gourmet Market Table & Feijoada Bar, which includes items such as hearts of palm, giant asparagus, fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese, sun dried tomatoes, fresh cut and steamed broccoli, marinated artichoke bottoms, tabbouleh, smoked salmon and an assortment of fine cheeses. Side dishes are served at your table: seasoned mashed potatoes, caramelized bananas, crispy polenta and warm cheese bread. (The Market Table can also be ordered by itself, if eating large quantities of meat is not your thing.)
