In this week’s Cafe review of the Brazilian churrascaria on the Country Club Plaza, Fogo de Chao, there were two issues that dominated this dining experience: that patrons are encouraged to eat a lot of food and that the price tag is expensive. At Fogo de Chao, the salad bar and those roving passadores with the skewers of juicy, roasted meats present a very alluring visual. The fare all looks so good, you want to at least taste everything. And one thing we know from any restaurant with an all-you-can-eat theme: you also want to feel that you’re getting your money’s worth.
And that’s precisely where Fogo’s Northland rival, Em Chamas, is going out for blood.
