Southern Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chão opened its first Las Vegas location on November 10, featuring a layout meant to court groups and meetings.

Overall, the restaurant comprises 14,000 square feet and has room for 400 seated guests.

The menu offers 15 different cuts of slow-roasted meats, carved tableside by authentic gaucho chefs. Also included are traditional southern Brazilian side dishes on a 30-plus-item salad and sides bar. Signature dishes include picanha, top sirloin seasoned with sea salt or garlic and roasted slowly, and a dessert called papaya cream, made with fresh papaya, vanilla ice cream, and Crème de Cassis liqueur.
