The full-service Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chao is bouncing back into business and hopping into spring all at the same time. The churrascaria, known for roving waiters who serve a variety of meats on skewers tableside, is already presenting some new items to guests at the 661 N. LaSalle Boulevard location in Chicago.
The market table in the middle of the room now has a roped section to organize the line and transparent glass guards above the food to protect it. Hand sanitizer is located at the front as diners enter the restaurant and at the market table to keep germs away. While some eager patrons still have a tendency to overcrowd the salad line the night I visited, hopefully they will get the hang of it and slow down to match the current pace of the world in the future.
