Fogo de Chão, a restaurant chain specialising in southern Brazilian cuisine, has signed a lease agreement to open its seventh location in the greater Baltimore and Washington DC metropolitan area.

The new 7,500ft² location is set to open in 2024 at 698 Maine Avenue SW at The Wharf.

The design of the new Fogo de Chão location is a collaborative effort with global architecture and design agency Harrison.

 The restaurant will feature the brand’s recent transformation, which includes enhanced design elements and innovative offerings such as outdoor dining spaces and dry-aged meat lockers.

Guests visiting Fogo de Chão can dine at an open churrasco grill and observe gaucho chefs grilling over an open flame.

In addition to the churrasco grill, the restaurant’s offerings include seasonal salads, fresh superfoods, cured meats and antipasti.

Fogo de Chão CEO Barry McGowan said: “The Wharf location is a strategic step in our mission to redefine the elevated dining experience.

“We have witnessed a growing demand for Fogo de Chão in Virginia and Maryland and the surrounding communities and opening our seventh location underscores our dedication to meeting the evolving tastes of our young, dynamic guests.”

In January 2024, Fogo de Chão announced its plan to open 20 new locations as part of its global expansion.

The company intends to open new restaurants in the US and other international markets, building upon the momentum of previously announced domestic and international leases.

Its development pipeline for 2024 and 2025 includes new lease signings and restaurant openings, with its 100th restaurant milestone expected by the end of 2024.
