  • Guacho's
    Taking its name from the iconic South American cowboy, Gaucho's serves up satisfying meals of smoked meats in traditional Brazilian steakhouse style. Black-clad servers swiftly cart out all-you-can-eat feasts of top sirloin, lingui?a sausage, pork ribs, and alaskan snow crab to hungry patrons, who signal their desire for more food with green flags and high-pitched baby-bird squeaks. Each steakhouse meal begins with a selection of tropical pineapple or pepper salads that prepare palates for the hearty spread of lamb, battered perch, bacon-wrapped chicken, and saut?ed shrimp. In addition to smoking tender, juicy meats on sword-like skewers, chefs at Gaucho's whip up an ? la carte menu of delightful prime-rib burgers, Philly-steak sandwiches, and chicken-parmesan sandwiches. Smaller plates include cheese and olives, calamari, and champagne-poached scallops. Diners listen to live music amid the blonde woods and black-leather furnishings of the main dining room, or sip from a selection of 25 different martinis in the steakhouse's Twisted Martini Lounge & Nightclub. Guests celebrate wedding feasts and birthday parties at the private skyline banquet room, surrounded by cityscape photomurals and equipped with a full-service bar and seating for more than 100 guests.

  • Fogo 2 Go
    Not a lot of ideas dreamed up on a first date come to fruition. But for Daniela and Brad, their first date in a Sao Paulo pizzeria grew into more than just a romance. With every successive date, their wouldn't-it-be-nice dream of opening a Brazilian-style pizzeria grew too shape. Not too long after, they decided to use the recipes handed down from their Italian ancestors to create their pizzeria, Fogo 2 Go. In their cozy store-front—taken up by a main counter and an enormous brick oven—they bake crispy, Italian pizzas paired with unique Brazilian influences. Their pies come layered with everything from classic Italian sausages to more unique brie margherita and shrimp scampi toppings. True to the idea's Brazilian roots, they also cook up treats such as coxinha—an empanada filled with seasoned chicken and mashed potatoes—as well as desserts such as flan and Nutella & Banana pizza. Aside from the Brazilian-Italian comestibles, Fogo's crown jewel is the brick-fired, charbroiled whole, half, or quarter chicken. Thanks to the intensity of the oven's heat and the incantations of the bistro's house shaman, the chicken quick-cooks, leaving a bacon-crisp skin and sealing in juices. What they never decided in their dream was the type of beverages to serve, so the pair let customers make that choice themselves with their BYOB policy. Fogo 2 Go even satisfies late-night hungers by staying open until 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.

  • mEAT on Halsted
    If you got three chances to guess what they serve at mEAT, chances are, you'd only need one. More than 13 varieties of cage- and hormone-free meat and wild-caught seafood dishes are available in bite-size, skewered morsels, though there are also crab-rangoon flatbreads and vegetarian- and pescatarian-friendly entrees. Catering to people with a backyard barbecue sensibility as well as fine-dining enthusiasts and those who only eat things off sticks, main courses include bacon-wrapped chicken with jalapeños, beef tenderloin tips in a burgundy wine sauce, and wasabi-crusted salmon with dijon mustard. To wash it down, there's a wide array of whiskey cocktails, craft beers, and molecular chemistry–inspired Vaportinis.

  • Fogo de Chao
    With the same meticulous preparation used in Brazil since 1979, the chefs at Fogo de Chao expertly grill 15 cuts of meat that are sliced to-order tableside. They flavor New Zealand lamb with a mint marinade, wrap filet mignon in bacon, and massage baby back pork ribs with a special wet and dry rub before fire-cooking each slab. The restaurant’s gaucho chefs then cart the speared meats from table to table, stopping to slice tender pieces onto guests’ plates and challenge one another to fencing matches. As a result, Zagat rated both the food and the kitchen-to-table service at very good to excellent.
