“Bring an appetite and you will be rewarded”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Fantastic meal. Every meat item we tried was excellent and whenever we wanted more of an item, all we had to do was ask for it and it arrived quickly. The service was so attentive, the atmosphere was very pleasant and the food was plentiful. All in all, a great meal. Just bring an appetite so you can eat your fair share.

“Brazil in central Manhattan: carnivores rejoice!”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

Fabulous Brazilian churrascaría just opposite MoMA. Initially I had some misgivings about the place (it's actually in the basement, but very pleasant), the price and the quantities of food to be ingested…but eventually I was delighted by everything (the price is less delightful, but if you're really hungry and out for a GOOD square meal, it's value for money). There is a splendid salad-bar and the waiters come round continually with excellent meat of every description and cut you off a piece if your display your token on the green side. Once you've had enough, or want a pause, you just turn the token over and the waiters stop coming. It's fun, there's a tremendous buzz (it's big and noisy + atmosphere) and the actual food is great.

“Spendy but worth it for a special occasion”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

I have good memories of visiting the Fogo De Chao in Chicago a few years ago so we thought we would try it again. Everything was as I remembered. An excellent salad bar, fantastic swift service, and very fine meat. Our kids enjoyed it as well and were well taken care of. We did order a couple of specialty drinks and dessert and the bill topped $200 because of that for our family of four. I would recommend skipping dessert there and finding something cheaper nearby since the ice cream scoops we ordered for the kids were $10 each! It's something to try once to experience it but for the money, it better be a special occasion.

“Tasty tasty meat!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

All you can eat tasty tasty meat!! Quality cuts, nicely seasoned and cooked just right, you just cant go wrong with this.

From the entrance you dont realize how big it's going to be inside and really, holy wow in midtown. This is one spacious spot. Walk in and check your coat if you want, have a drink at the bar or just head on down when they're ready and get seated. Staff is professional, nice and efficient (love this). Good food + great service is ALWAYS a win.

Tables are not sitting on top of one another so you get your space, plus it makes it easier for the meat to speedily arrive and be sliced off onto your plate. The salad buffet is nice, has the usuals you'd expect and some nice touches like the entire wheel of parmigiana reggiano that is being slowly chiseled for your consumption. There's also a nice big bowl of super crisp bacon whch i unfortunatly couldnt partake in since i gave it up for lent *sigh* but everyone else at my table got some...We all tried something but we all knew to leave room for the main act, seriously tasty, quality cuts of grilled to perfection meat. Tell them how you like your meat cooked and they'll slice off just the right juicy piece for you. MMM MMM MMM
NOTE: i like my meat med rare.

*sirloin: yum
*rib eye: my fave by far all night. so very very tasty and tender.
*top sirloin: tasty
*lamb: tasty with just the right amount of gaminess you'd expect. tender as well
*parmesan crusted pork loin: awesome flavor but i found it a little dry. Quite salty due to the crust but it made it stand out from the other cuts
*fogo steak: i wasn't given a med rare piece, it was really the last chunk on the sword so this was overcooked for me and a bit tough plus an 1 inch chunk at the end was just fat. i like marbling but a super thick chunk was too much, that just got trimmed off. this was my least favorite.
Still sad I didnt get to try the bacon wrapped chicken or the bacon wrapped filet mignon but that'll be for next time!!!

Despite all this food, i made sure i had room for dessert :) tried the tres leche and this was very creamy and rich and sweet. It was good but too much caramel flavor for my taste. there was more cream rather than cake so that overpowered it.

Ah yes, we also did get drinks!

*Superfruit lemonade: tastes like juice but u know there's a kick comin!
*Moscato: sparkling red which looks like rose. sweet bubbly
They also have a fancy drink cart they wheel around the dining room for those in the mood for just liquor.

Great time here. Five of us, a couple drinks each, bottle of moscato and 2 desserts was about $500. Not bad! I'll definitely be coming back w. the hubs.
