Pork ribs can be paired with hearty soups and salads for a hearty autumn feast at Pittsburgh’s Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse.

Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse is moving into its first autumn in Pittsburgh with a menu to complement the season.

Since opening in April, the restaurant has offered authentic Brazilian culture and cuisine, according to its website .

Fire-roasted meats including Fraldinha (b0ttom sirloin) and Costela de Porco (pork ribs) are among the popular items on the menu.

The fire-roasted meats pair well with the cooling weather and the season’s hearty flavors, including kale and roasted butternut squash, lentils, tomatoes and spinach, a news release notes.

Among the “flavorful fall” menu items are Butternut Kale Salad with chickpeas, feta, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, tossed in a honey-citrus vinaigrette; Autumn Lentil Soup (gluten-free, vegetarian), French green lentils, carrots, onions and celery simmered with tomatoes, garlic, spinach; and Gigante Bean Salad, marinated Gigante beans, bell pepper, onion, herbs and vinaigrette.

Fogo de Chao is located at 525 Smithfield St., and is open weekdays for lunch and dinner.

Brunch and dinner are available Saturdays and Sundays.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
