64 Days ago

New Seasonal choices are available now for everyone to enjoy this summer

DALLAS, May 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With temperatures slated to soar this summer, the internationally-renowned Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chão is inviting guests to beat the heat with refreshing menu additions perfect for summer. Fogo’s summer innovations offer something for everyone to enjoy at Fogo, from a new light but decadent cut of meat, seasonal fruits and vegetables to a zero-proof mocktail.

“At Fogo, every one of our tables is inspired by the best flavors of Brazil’s farms. Grilling has always been important in Brazil, but never more than during the summer season. That is why our new summer menu launch makes for the ideal time to introduce fire-grilled pork belly and queijo assado, a grilled Brazilian-style cheese, as a complement to churrasco,” said Barry McGowan, Chief Executive Officer of Fogo de Chão. “Our guests can enjoy our light takes on summertime favorites, alongside our year round offerings that have made us a go-to destination for those looking to escape to Brazil on a moment’s notice.”

Now available at all U.S. and Puerto Rico locations for a limited time, Fogo’s summer menu selections include:

  • Grilled Pork Belly & Pineapple: Smoked pork belly is served with a balsamic glaze and roasted cinnamon pineapple.
  • Queijo Assado: A Brazilian-style cheese that, when grilled, becomes crispy on the outside, yet warm and melted on the inside, finished with a spicy malagueta honey.
  • Market Table additions include a Watermelon Feta Salad (juicy watermelon tossed with feta cheese, summer basil, fresh mint and black pepper) and Tomato Mozzarella Salad (ripe tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil and whole milk Buffalo mozzarella).
  • Watermelon Fresca Cocktail (Non-Alcoholic): Made with ripe watermelon, lime and ice, this refreshing mocktail is a seasonal addition to Fogo’s non-alcoholic beverage lineup, which includes fan favorites Grapefruit Elderflower Spritz and Pineapple Mint Lemonade.

All summer innovations pair perfectly with Fogo fan favorites like Picanha, the prime part of the top sirloin and signature steak at Fogo, or delicately prepared seafood options, such as Mango Chilean Sea Bass.

For any summertime celebration or getaway, Fogo de Chão offers group and private dining options at all locations. From graduation dinners to wedding rehearsals, Fogo is well-suited for groups of all sizes with customizable menus, private and semi-private dining spaces, and complimentary A/V equipment. In addition, the Full Churrasco Experience is always complimentary for children under six years old and half price for those aged seven – 12.

About Fogo de Chão
Fogo de Chão (fogo-dee-shown) is a leading Brazilian steakhouse, or churrascaria, specializing in the centuries-old Southern Brazilian cooking technique of churrasco – the art of roasting high-quality cuts of meats over open flame, all of which are carved tableside by Brazilian-trained gaucho chefs. Founded in Southern Brazil in 1979, there are currently 53 locations throughout Brazil, the United States, Mexico and the Middle East.

Fogo’s distinctive and authentic Brazilian dining experience begins with the seasonal Market Table and Feijoada Bar, which includes seasonal salads, soup, fresh vegetables, imported charcuterie and more. The restaurant features a variety of simply seasoned meats that are fire-roasted by gaucho chefs, plus seafood, desserts, signature cocktails and an award-winning wine list. In addition to the full churrasco experience, Fogo offers its guests multiple ways to enjoy the experience at varying price points, including weekday lunch starting at $15, weekend Brazilian Brunch and a Bar Fogo menu that features smaller, sharable plates, Brazilian-inspired cocktails and happy hour.
