Fogo de Chão is an international chain where you’ll find a $25 shrimp cocktail served in a massive Midtown space that feels like the set from a Michael Bay-directed Oceans 14. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way - you should go to Fogo de Chão. Specifically, you should go with people who really like meat, and everyone should do the $70 churrasco experience. Once you sit down with a plate of feijoada and sides, round after round of filet mignon, pork and beef picanha, and a dozen other meats will arrive on spits ready to be sliced onto your plate, cooked to whatever doneness you prefer.
