Lots of excitement lately for downtown's restaurant scene:
Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de ChÃ£o opens tonight in The Broadbent Building. And if last night's preview dinner was any indication, this place should do well. You get an extensive salad bar, hot side dishes and unlimited servings of 15 different types of meat served up by gaucho chefs, all for $38.50 for dinner. Save room for dessert and caipirinhas, tasty cocktails our server described as sweet mojitos.
BadaBoomz, downtown's former Buffalo Wild Wings, plans to switch again to a new concept. The restaurant is scheduled to reopen next Thursday as J. Gumbo's. The Louisville-based chain has seven locations. It's a Cajun-Creole concept that looks a lot like Yats. (Read more at Dig-B)
Elements has a new owner with plans to expand the concept into new markets. Greg Hardesty and Mike Sylvia sold the restaurant to Dennis Dunn, who apparently plans to keep everything the same. (More at FeedMeDrinkMe.)
