Fogo de Chao
200 Dartmouth St., Boston
Friends in LA were excited when the upscale chain Fogo de Chao opened here in Copley Square. And though the dining room feels corporate, servers bring an endless parade of succulent meat skewers to the table, and the salad bar has huge wheels of Parmesan, smoked salmon, shaved ribbons of prosciutto, and sparkling fresh veggies of all kinds. What it lacks in charm, it makes up for in quality. Be prepared to pay dearly. It’s $48.50 for dinner, about twice the price of most other area churrascaria.
