Of its more than five dozen locations around the world, none offer the kind of dining experience found at this restaurant in the region.
Westchester County eatery Fogo de Chão in White Plains, located at 235 Main Street, opened in April 2021 inside the historic Bank of New York building, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
A meat-lover's paradise, the steakhouse specializes in the Southern Brazilian cooking technique of churrasco, roasting high quality, simply seasoned cuts of meat over an open flame, according to its website.
Meats are then carved and served tableside by Brazilian-trained gaucho chefs.
Diners who opt for the “Churrasco Experience” are given a card with a red side and a green side. As long as your card is flipped to green, restaurant staff will continue to swing by your table with a mouth-watering selection of fire-roasted meats.
Adorning its menu are meats of all types, including filet mignon, bone-in ribeye, bacon-wrapped chicken and steak, pork ribs, and Wagyu New York Strip.
Entrees include Chilean sea bass, pan-seared salmon, and cauliflower steak.
Guests can also choose from an array of fresh seasonal salads, exotic fruits, vegetables, imported charcuterie, and cheeses.
Those looking for a more casual, relaxed experience can order signature cocktails, South American wines, and smaller, shareable plates in Bar Fogo.
