now, in it's place, they have "J. Alexander".

both are really nice places if you're looking to casually go there about 10 times a year, but not exclusive like Vic and Anthony's or Morton's

ya'll ever been to a Brizilian Steakhouse named "Fogo de Chao": http://www.thrillist.com/eat/san-die...d-possibly-eat

christ, you could literally die in that place......

only 16 locations in the US - and there's only 6 in Brazil lolololol.....

you basically sit at the table after you grab your salad. they give you a round card that looks like a coaster to put on your table.

if the card is flipped on green, the servers will walk up to your table with some random cut of meat. once you ask what it is, they tell you. if you want it, they set this skewer type thing on the table and start slicing it onto your plate.

when you are overwhelmed with meat after the first 10 minutes, you have to flip your coaster back over for them to stop.

the meats down below are all the types of meats the servers have that visit your table throughout your experience there.

Fogo de Chão signPicanha (prime part of the sirloin)
Top and bottom sirloin
Filet mignon
Beef ancho
Beef ribs
Leg of lamb and lamb chops (cordeiro)
Pork tenderloin and pork ribs
Chicken legs
Garlic beef
Garlic chicken



if you can't handle your meat, then Fogo de Chao is not for the faint of heart....

yeah we have a couple places like that in Utah, they are GOOOD! One is called Texas De Brazil (more expensive) and the other is Rodizio Grill (cheaper but very good).

That place has always been good. I have taken a few of my clients to the one in Chicago and most of them have said that they had never really known what it was but would certainly go back. Between the awesome amounts of meat that you can get, that salad bar is amazing as well.

If you go, be sure that you are damn good and hungry, because you want to experience everything they have.

Last time we were in Brazil, we hired a local restaurant owner to come to our rental house and cook a traditional Brazilian BBQ, which is pretty much where the concept of Fogo de Chao and others came from.

Best meal of the trip!

We got a Brazilian churrascaria here in Pittsburgh about a year ago...been there twice and I'm just not a fan. Slow service...and they wouldn't get that damn chicken out of my face. I came to eat the good stuff, not that crap. Wife hit one down in Sal Palo, she said it was excellent...

On a lighter note, I see we have a Capital Grille here...I'll need to compare.

What always amazes me when we go there is that with all the activity of customers going to and from the salad bar, the servers walk around with hot skewers and big sharp knives and don't burn and cut or skewer everybody in sight.

Capital Grille has always been one of those places that I take customers to impress them. Granted, they always have excellent service, food and a wine list that is fantastic, I just never really think to go there for just meal with a date or friends. Maybe I will have to try to get there one of these days to just have a meal and not conduct business.

I also happen to be good friends with the managing partner of a Johnny's Italian Steakhouse near where I live so that may skew my views of things as well. I typically will take a date here to impress her just because of the fact that I get treated like royalty and everybody knows my name.

I recently ate at the one in town here and it was pretty fantastic. It's also amusing to watch other patrons around the room who keep forgetting to flip their token over.
