At Fogo de Chao, a behemoth Brazilian churrascaria in the heart of LoDo, skewer-wielding, Gaucho-costumed servers in puffy black pants saunter from table to table, tempting carnivores with more than a dozen different meats – think filet mignon, top sirloin, sausage, salted ribeye and mint-marinated lamb – that are carved tableside and plucked off the skewers with tiny tongs. And the meat just keeps on coming and coming until you flip your coaster to red, which indicates that your belly needs a break from the gluttony. Luckily, there’s an impressive salad bar, too – but like the meat parade, it’s hardly pedestrian: imported cheeses, breads, hearts of palm and marinated vegetables, including artichokes, stock the display, which is replenished long before anything has vanished. With its comfortable seating and elegant touches, Fogo de Chao is perfect for a special occasion, or just a meat-frenzied evening with friends.

Caribbean Breeze sends forth bursts of flavor with its menu of Latin- and Caribbean-inspired meals. Inside the well-lit eatery, chefs prepare shrimp three ways: breaded in coconut, swimming in a champagne cream sauce, or wrapped in bacon and cheese. Salmon and tilapia filets evoke more delicate flavors straight from the grill. The kitchen also concocts Mexican classics such as carne asada, which is served with deep fried jalapenos alongside rice and beans.

Established as a haven for steak lovers in 1958, Emil-Lene's grillmasters have crafted a menu of upscale filets and American cuisine served with a bevvy of trimmings. Meaty choices include 5-, 9-, and 12-ounce filets, as well as three sizes of sirloin as tender as a butterfly's fragile ego. Chefs fry chicken dinners to crisp completeness, while 10-ounce prime ribs are seared to perfection atop a charcoal grill. Along with the menu's simplified offerings, servers whisk trays of vegetables and spaghetti appetizers to tables, with chilled butter spreading across fresh-baked bread, and soup or salad and a choice of potato tucking themselves into the last crevices of each stomach. The restaurant keeps in touch with its historic roots and cowboy ambiance, with Wild West artwork, a cozy dining room, and regular duels between visiting handlebar mustaches.
