Fogo de Chao, Fogo de Chao, Fogo De Chao. In the world of churrascarias in southern California this is one place always thrown into the conversation. This past week was Dine L.A. http://discoverlosangeles.com/play/dining/ and I took full advanntage of it by placing a reservation for what is normally the most expensive churrascaria in the Los Angeles area (It looked like everybody else also had the same idea). On this night we got a good discount to come dine with all the service of any other night. The four of us showed up a little early and had a round at the bar which the bartender just gave us a tab to take to the table. We dined on filet mignon, bacon wrapped filet mignon, bacon wrapped chicken, chicken leg, leg of lamb, lamb chops, top cap sirloin, sirloin, flank steak, parmesan encrusted pork, rib eye, pork ribs, beef ribs, sausage (which was the one thing I did not have). I think Im missing one more from this list. Oh yes and there was the salad bar starter that seemed to have offered less than some other brazilian churrascarias around town but the quality of food on it was top notch. The caprihinnas were strong but the sangria is the only area that takes a hit here for me. It really lacked alot of flavor. So with the Dine L.A. going on they were completely packed the service was almost a little to good. Several times we did feel a little rushed but Id rather have that then a lack of service anyday. The desserts came and we were celebrating a birthday at the table so they comped us a dessert and also a coffee and sambucca for the birthday girl (nice touch). Suprisingly enough no singing though, but that may have been due to a packed house. Ive been to more than several different churrascarias now and I still think Espetus in San Francisco still rates number 1 overall but after last night Fogo de Chao for me is a close second. Maybe on not such a busy night the servers may have had a bit of time to chat and not just rush around. Remember they are the most expensive in Los Angeles so if you are looking to save a few bucks you may want to catch them here at the next Dine L.A. event. 5 out of 5 stars!!!
