Fogo de Chão pays homage to Brazilian roots

Flagship HQ restaurant puts twist on churrascaria brand

Newly private Fogo de Chão Inc. pays homage to its Brazilian roots in its newest restaurant that opened in March, just below its new corporate headquarters in the mixed-use Legacy West development in Plano, Texas.

The company went private in April when New York City-based Rhône Capital acquired the company in a cash deal valued at $560 million.

The new 13,600-square-foot restaurant opened soon before that deal closed and features the chain’s only “Dry-Aged Experience,” where on Friday and Saturday nights guests can treat order premium cuts aged in-house for a minimum of 45 days.

The restaurant, designed by the Perkins+Will firm’s Dallas office, also features the Bar Fogo menu, a more casual setting with a la carte offerings.

This gallery features some of the design highlights from the newest restaurant.
