Galpao Gaucho Brazilian Steakhouse
You've got a few options for Brazilian steakhouses in Vegas, but Galpão Gaúcho is the newest and easily one of the best. The restaurant is on the Strip-facing east side of the Fashion Show mall with a reclusive white-tablecloth dining room that feels a world away from the chaos of tourists and shoppers. It's a great environment for an all-you-can-eat rodizio feast, with servers roaming the dining room with skewers of steak and seafood, slicing off pieces tableside while offering as much as your appetite can handle. Ribeye, salmon, lamb chops, chicken legs—it's all fair game. A few items (garlic mashed potatoes, spicy sauces, and fried plantains) are brought to the table, but most of the salads, sides, and soups are presented in a self-serve buffet. Desserts are priced separately. The bar has a nice Scotch collection and tempting cocktails, including barrel-aged Manhattans and Old Fashioneds.
