Fogo de Chão Unveils New Fall Menu Offerings

New York Strip, salads and seasonal soup are now available on the menu for a limited time

DALLAS, Sept. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As temperatures drop, Fogo is firing up the grill with a new fall menu. From a premium New York Strip to salads and new vegetarian offerings, the seasonal selections are now available on the Market Table and as part of the Full Churrasco Experience at all Fogo locations in the United States and Puerto Rico for a limited time.

“In Southern Brazil, local farmers and families rotate and harvest produce during peak seasonality. Here at Fogo, we embrace that same approach on our Market Table and churrasco grill,” said Barry McGowan, Chief Executive Officer of Fogo de Chao. “We are refreshing our menu to feature the flavors of fall when fruits and vegetables such as butternut squash and pears are at their peak ripeness.”

Fogo’s fall menu selections include:

  • New York Strip: A premium steak lightly seasoned with rock salt and fire-roasted on the churrasco grill.
  • Butternut Kale Salad: Roasted butternut squash, fresh kale, chickpeas and feta tossed with honey citrus vinaigrette, and topped with pumpkin and sunflower seeds.
  • Butternut & Sweet Potato Soup: Roasted butternut squash blended with sweet potatoes and winter spices.
  • Pear & Endive Salad: Juicy seasonal pears, red and gold endive, blue cheese, candied bacon, lightly mixed with pear vinaigrette.
  • Roasted Sweet Potatoes: Oven-roasted and miso-glazed sweet potatoes with freshly chopped parsley.             

Each of the fall menu additions pairs perfectly with Fogo’s signature fire-roasted meats, including Picanha, the prized steak of Brazil, or mint-marinated Lamb Chops. In addition, a la carte seafood options such as the Chilled Lobster and Shrimp appetizer can be added on to enhance the dining experience.
