RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Fogo de Chão, a restaurant specializing in Brazilian churrasco, is coming to Richmond this February.
The new location will open its doors in West Broad Village on Monday, Feb. 12.
According to a press release, a portion of the restaurant’s sales during its first week of operations will be donated to Feed More Richmond — a local food bank serving central Virginia.
Located at 11221 W Broad St., Fogo de Chão offers a unique dining experience with its churrasco grill positioned in the center of its dining room. This will allow guests to enjoy a culinary show as they watch Fogo de Chão’s team of chefs cook high-quality meats over an open flame.
“We look forward to expanding our presence in Virginia by bringing the culinary art of
churrasco to food explorers seeking new adventures,” said Chief Executive Officer of Fogo de Chão Barry McGowan.
Churrasco is a Brazilian technique of roasting meats over an open flame, according to the release.
Additional features include Fogo de Chão’s Market Table and Feijoada Bar, showcasing seasonal salads, soup, fresh vegetables and imported charcuterie. The expansive menu also includes in-house, dry-aged meat selections.
This will be the third Fogo de Chão location in Virginia, with the other two being in Fairfax County. The restaurant began in Southern Brazil in 1979 and has expanded internationally over the years.
