Fogo de Chão, a restaurant chain specialising in southern Brazilian cuisine, has signed a lease agreement to open its first location in Richmond, Virginia, US.

Located in West Broad Village, the new outlet is scheduled to open by the end of the year.

Fogo de Chão CEO Barry McGowan said: “Following the success of the Reston location, we were eager to bring another location to Virginia. We are thrilled to open our first Richmond restaurant at West Broad Village and introduce the culinary art of churrasco to the local community.

“We look forward to welcoming guests in Richmond soon to give them culinary discoveries you can’t find at any other restaurant.”

The new restaurant will showcase Fogo’s recent brand transformation with enhanced design and innovation platforms.

It will have an expansive dining room centred around an open churrasco grill and a white Carrera marble Market Table featuring seasonal salads, fresh superfoods, cured meats, antipasti and more.
