"Pace yourself." That was what we were told many times over before we visited Boston's newly opened Brazilian steakhouse, Fogo de Chao. If you eat too fast or too much of one item, you wont know what youre missing until the beef brigade starts passing you by. Brazilian gauchos come with a seemingly endless supply of skewers, loaded with everything from filet mignon to juicy sirloin sliced table side.
Our server told us about the 45-item salad bar overflowing with fresh mushrooms, tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, white rice, black beans and a variety of breads and cheeses, suggesting we take our time before being presented with the 15 different selections of meats.For an authentic Brazilian dining experience, start off with a cocktail known as the caipirinha a sweet concoction of sugar cane, lime and rum or order a few appetizers. Our server brought a bowl of garlic mashed potatoes, fried polenta and a batch of caramelized bananas we couldnt get enough of.
