If you're a serious carnivore, Fogo de Chao is the restaurant you've been dreaming of. Not only will servers bring beef, lamb, pork, chicken and sausage to your table until you beg for mercy, but seafood isn't even an option here. You don't have to have the smallest twinge of guilt for choosing the steak. Pretty amazing for a Baltimore restaurant in the Inner Harbor.

Fogo de Chao (pronounced fo-go dee shouwn) is the city's new Brazilian churrascaria, or steakhouse, part of a rapidly expanding chain. But don't hold that against it. Whether you like it will boil down to whether this is the dining experience you want. There's no denying that what they do, they do -- for the most part -- very well.
