comments on fogo de chao & dressing up (moved from Site Talk)

My husband and I want to go to Fogo de Chao but we are light eaters. Would it be a waste of money for us to dine there? We thought that my husband would order the full meal and I could possibly order a salad and appetizer or several appetizers if the menu permits.

Additionally, we usually dine out on Saturday evenings and several times during the weekdays. On Saturday nights, we get dressed up. My husband will wear a suit, or at least a sports coat and dress shirt. We recently dined at Fleming's Steakhouse (one of our favorite places). Diners were coming into the restaurant dressed in tattered (not decently pressed) jeans and t-shirts. The same with Oceannaire, Blue Sea Grill and Vin in Towson. If these people can afford these upscale restaurants, why can't they honor the venue by dressing appropriately?! Or they should go to places like Applebee's, Olive Garden, TGIF Friday's, etc. when dressing very casually.

Is it just my husband and I who feel this way? We go casual during the week, but never as sploppy as some of the people we see. I think dress codes so be reinstated. I am glad that the Prime Rib and Oregon Grill request that gentleman wear jackets at dinner time.

Comments please.
