BURLINGTON, Mass., May 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fogo de Chão, the internationally-renowned steakhouse that allows guests to discover what’s next at every turn, announced today its plan to open its second location in the Boston-area. Located at the Burlington Mall, a Simon property and one of Massachusetts’ premiere high-end destinations for shopping and dining, the new restaurant is slated to open by the end of 2021.
“For more than 40 years Fogo has offered authentic Brazilian hospitality, creating welcoming and memorable experiences for every guest, from Brazil to the US and beyond,” said Barry McGowan, Chief Executive Officer of Fogo de Chão. “We’ve been fortunate to have had a wonderful reception from the Boston community for nearly 10 years, and we are looking forward to expanding our Massachusetts footprint by opening our doors in Burlington this year.”
Fogo’s Burlington restaurant, designed in partnership with SGDesign, Inc., will feature the brand’s sophisticated design aesthetic and an open air Churrasco Grill in the heart of the restaurant’s dining space. Guests will be able to watch Fogo’s gaucho chefs butcher, prepare and grill different cuts of meat over open flames, all while enjoying their meal seated at the surrounding bar top.
Design plans for the new location feature a sleek marble exterior, large window panels and backlit architectural accents. The restaurant’s interior will consist of natural wood paneling, rich colors, an array of modern chandeliers and a glass-encased wine room. The new location will also have an outdoor dining patio and open-air bar, intimate fireplace seating, dry-aged meat cabinets for in-house aging and a lively indoor bar area with lounge seating, an award-winning South American wine list, Brazilian-inspired cocktails and a premium whiskey and bourbon menu.
Guests can choose from an array of seafood and fire-roasted meats that are hand-carved and served tableside, plus Fogo’s newest offerings like premium dry-aged cuts and Wagyu New York Strip. Seasonal dishes, fresh fruits and vegetables can also be found on Fogo’s Market Table and are included in a Weekday Lunch option starting at $15. Additionally, the Burlington location will offer Fogo-To-Go, the perfect option for guests who choose to experience Fogo from the comfort of their own home.
