A gourmet steakhouse is making plans for a New Jersey hat-trick. Fogo de Chao will be
opening its third Garden State location at the Bridgewater Commons in 2024, reports local media outlet, NJ.com.
The upcoming location, set to open at 400 Commons Way, is currently listed simply as “coming soon”, providing little insight as to a potential opening date. However, the company projects an early 2024 debut.
Fogo de Chao CEO Barry McGowan expressed enthusiasm for the Bridgewater Commons location, telling NJBiz “We look forward to welcoming guests to our new restaurant soon, to discover the culinary art of Churrasco, and the very best cuts that Brazil has to offer right here in Bridgewater.”
Fogo de Chao takes its inspiration from Brazilian steakhouses. The first location greeted customers in Porto Alegre in 1979. The corporate-owned chain has since grown to include 62 restaurants across the United States, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, and Mexico.
Visitors to Fogo de Chao can look forward to gourmet cuts of premium meats prepared tableside. Side dishes include beloved classics like mashed potatoes as well as some unexpected surprises like caramelized bananas and polenta.
