It’s the second location of the Southern Brazilian steakhouse in Atlanta.
Southern Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chão (pronounced fo-go dee shown) opened its second Atlanta-area location Wednesday, November 30 in Dunwoody, the restaurant in a press release announced Thursday.
“We’re very excited to open our second Atlanta-area restaurant in Dunwoody,” Larry Johnson, CEO of Fogo de Chão, said in the release.
“Since opening in Buckhead almost 16 years ago, we’ve kept an eye on the growth in Dunwoody, and are thrilled to establish Fogo as a regular destination for residents, the business community, and tourists alike.”
The menu is anchored around the “Churrasco” experience – the art of roasting meats over an open fire, and espeto corrido, or “continuous service” – that Fogo de Chão began serving more than 37 years ago in Southern Brazil.
To celebrate the new location, an introductory price of $46.50 is being offered for dinner.
The Dunwoody culinary team is proudly led by General Manager and Head Gaucho Chef Alceu Pressi, who first learned the gaucho style of cooking on his family farm in the small town of Marau, Brazil, located in Rio Grande do Sul, the state in which Fogo de Chão was founded.
Fogo de Chão Dunwoody is located in the new Spruill Center Development next door to The Spruill Center for the Arts and minutes from Perimeter Mall.
