Full-service Brazilian steakhouse or churrascaria Fogo de Chão opened a new flagship restaurant in Coral Gables, Fla.

Designed in partnership with Dallas-based architecture and design firm Harrison, Fogo’s two-story Coral Gables location features a 280-seat dining room. Anchoring the space is an open-air churrasco bar where guests can dine and watch gaucho chefs display the culinary art of churrasco as they butcher, prepare and grill different cuts of protein over an open flame. The new flagship also includes a large outdoor patio for al fresco dining, soaring wine cases displaying South America’s finest varietals and dry-aged meat lockers for in-house aging.

Additional experiential elements unique to this location include the Next Level Lounge, an area located on the mezzanine level of the new restaurant. Guests can enjoy an elevated setting while discovering premium whiskey, bourbons, and South American wines carefully selected to enhance the guest experience.

The Coral Gables location will also feature The Butchery, a grab and go market that celebrates the art of churrasco that Fogo’s gaucho chefs display every day. Guests can enjoy imported charcuterie in The Butchery as they consult with expert butchers on the best cut of meat, freshly carved and packaged to grill at home.
