You lucky people in DC, I see by the Fogo de Chao website that now you have a Fogo (1100 block of Pennsylvania Avenue). This is one of only six locations in the US---others are in Brazil. Here in Chicago, this is our favorite restaurant treat; don't confuse it with less expensive Brazilian churrasquerias. The vast salad bar includes such things as fresh hearts of palm flown in from Brazil---you'd be really happy with just the salad bar. But then the endless parade of waiters starts, each bearing a sword with a cut of meat from which they carve just for you. Every cut is tender, smoky, and perfect, we think the best meat we have ever had anywhere. Here's a tip: check out the price of lunch vs dinner. Here, lunch costs half as much as dinner. Very popular here; when we went last week we waited 40 minutes with a reservation while walk-ins were promised a 2-hour wait. See their website.
