Fogo de Chão to Open Fifth New York Restaurant in Elmhurst

Leading Restaurant from Brazil Continues Expansion in The City with Plans to Open First Queens Location


NEW YORK, June 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fogo de Chão, the internationally-renowned restaurant from Brazil that allows guests to make discoveries at every turn, announced today it has plans to open a new location at 92-50 59th Ave in Elmhurst, Queens, adjacent to Queens Center. The new restaurant will be Fogo’s fifth location in New York, joined by locations in Midtown Manhattan, White Plains, Huntington Station and Garden City.

“Queens is one of the largest and culturally diverse boroughs in New York, and we’re thrilled to bring Fogo to a community so rich in its history and traditions,” said Barry McGowan, Chief Executive Officer of Fogo de Chão. “New Yorkers have been nothing but welcoming since we first opened our doors in Manhattan nearly 10 years ago, and we look forward to bringing the culinary art of churrasco to the heart of Queens and even more guests across greater New York.”

The Elmhurst restaurant will feature a sleek, modern exterior and a timeless interior that includes an open-air churrasco bar where guests can dine and watch gaucho chefs display the culinary art of churrasco as they butcher, prepare and grill different cuts of meat over an open flame. Simply seasoned, fire-roasted meats are the core of the Full Churrasco dining experience, where guests can discover a variety of flavors ranging from premium filet mignon and bone-in cowboy ribeye; decadent beef ribs and lamb chops; and house specialties Picanha (prime cut of the top sirloin) and Fraldinha (bottom sirloin with strong marbling for robust flavor). A white Carrera Market Table will anchor the dining room and offer fresh and seasonal salads, exotic fruits, vegetables, superfoods, imported charcuterie and more.

The new restaurant will also feature unique design aesthetics, including wood-beamed ceilings, modern chandeliers and a Bar Fogo area where guests can linger and discover South American cocktails and signature bar bites like the fresh-ground Picanha Burger and Lobster & Shrimp Tacos. Towering wine cases displaying South America’s finest varietals and dry aged meat lockers for in-house aging will further enhance the guest experience at the Elmhurst restaurant. Two private dining rooms will be available for guests to reserve for special occasions, and all-day happy hour will be available in the bar and the dining room every day of the week.
