    Chiming in here. There is one place currently open in Center City: Fogo de Chao http://www.fogodechao.com/locations/P...

    Another will be opening shortly (May 27th) , at 20th & JFK, called Chima (pronounce "She-mah). Here a couple of links: http://www.citypaper.net/blogs/clog/2...

      I read the thread - I am pretty sure she is referring to Picanha in NE Phila.

        sorry about that. I just looked it up. Gotta try it -- looks a lot cheaper that the CC places!

          It is cheaper. Its BYO, so that will save you money as well. Picture an old diner converted into a Brazillian restaurant, with a large salad bar, friendly service, and Brazilian football in the background. Its a very neighborhood place, with local people coming in and getting take out. The meat there is quite good, and the salad bar is well stocked. Highly recommended, especially if you go in a large group.

            Thanks! I really appreciate the info. We do go out with 6+ people every once in a while, so this looks like a destination. I will put it on my list to try.

        Yes, it is Picahana. That place is awesome. Hopefully, now that I learned I am a horrible tipper, they will let be back into the place :)

            It was on the "Not about Food" board. I have no idea how to post the link (I am very technologically challenged) but you can do a search there. Ther are some good reviews on this PA board about the restaurant too.
