Someone mentioned this Fogo de Chao on another thread. I thought it might be interesting for an office party of 14-16. What are your opinions? We like a restaurant that provides an experience. One of the guys is pushing hard for Victor's Cafe. Anyone been to both or have another suggestion?

    The Victor Cafe is a tourist trap, don't bother. Fogo would make for a much better party, the interior is very nice and the churrascaria style is a lot of fun, and the food is good too. Just make sure everyone loves meat. They have a nice salad bar, but if there are any vegetarians in the party they won't have as good a time as everyone else.

      second that. Victor's is overpriced for average food.

        Since I'm not a big meat eater, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Fogo de Chao. Admittedly, I made an exception and ate an awful lot of meat that day, but I really could have made a complete meal with the huge salad bar. Dinner is pretty expensive, but lunch is reasonable at about $25 per person.
