Date Night in Bmore: Fogo de Chao


When Chris got back from Italy we were in DIRE need of a date night. Over a week apart was too long so we made a reservation at Fogo de Chao on the night following his return. 

Spoiler alert: I had never been to Fogo de Chao. Crazy? Maybe, but I eat an almost vegan diet so a Brazaillan Steakhouse that brings meat to your table was a little out of my comfort zone. But I love Chris for challenging me so off we went.

We dressed up (you don’t have to though, some people were in jeans) and called a Lyft to get us downtown. We checked in with the hostess and were seated. Immediately upon being seated a waitress was at our table to explain the process for the evening and offer us sparkling or tap water (sparkling was $5 a person).

We visited the salad bar and filled our plates with delicious and healthy options, totally needed before our main course. We enjoyed multiple different cuts of steak, fried cheese, garlic mashed potatoes, homemade rolls and plantains. Everything was DELICIOUS and I liked the ability to decide how much of each thing I wanted to try.

Overall it was a great date night. Our reservation was on a Monday at 7:30pm and when we arrived there was only three other tables. By 9:00pm when we left the restaurant was full! For a more private dining experience, I recommend going earlier since they do fill up as the night goes on.

Price: $$$

    Omg there’s nothing like Fogo! Although you totally have a meat coma afterwards, and as Joey Tribbiani says on that one Thanksgiving episode of Friends, “Here come the meat sweats!”
