Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse will have special hours during the holidays, with several locations open on Christmas Day, and offer holiday menu additions included as part of its full Churrasco experience. New items include a classic slow roasted beef roast; Quentao (keen-tao)—a warm Brazilian mulled red wine made with fresh oranges, cinnamon, clove, and ginger; Sweet Potato Casserole with rich butter, cinnamon, and toasted marshmallows; and tender New York Strip steak carved tableside by gaucho chefs.
Fogo de Chao shares the centuries-old Southern Brazilian cooking technique of churrasco, the art of roasting meats over an open fire, and espeto corrido, or "continuous service." Its menu features a wealth of savory, fire-roasted meats seasoned, prepared, and carved tableside for each guest by a team of authentic Brazilian-trained gaucho chefs. Additionally, guests can also enjoy the gourmet Market Table & Feijoada Bar, which includes seasonal salads, soups, fresh vegetables, feijoada (traditional black bean stew with rice, fresh orange and toasted yucca flour), and authentic Brazilian side dishes.
"The holidays are a time to celebrate and being from Brazil, celebrating is part of our DNA," says Larry Johnson, CEO. "We've added new holiday-inspired menu items to make our dining experience even more exciting; couple that with our team's warm Southern Brazilian hospitality and Fogo is a not-to-be missed stop this holiday season."
All locations will be open Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve, and New Year's Day. Hours vary by location.
