Fogo de Chão is an authentic Brazilian Steakhouse with a location in Beverly Hills that has been here for 15 years! The founders of Fogo de Chão grew up on a traditional Southern Brazilian farm in the Serra Gaucha. That is where they learned to cook in the churrasco grilling tradition that Fogo de Chão is known for. The founding brothers left the quaint, mountainous countryside of Rio Grande do Sul to Rio and São Paulo for formal churrasqueiro training, all while developing the Fogo concept. The first restaurant was built out of a wooden structure in the countryside of Porto Alegre. From there it opened a second location in Brazil and at the requests of loyal American guests, the Fogo concept was exported to the U.S. with a stateside debut in Dallas, Texas. The culinary team has continued the tradition of developing new menu creations rooted in the Brazilian tradition that push forward the Brazilian churrasco experience.
Fogo de Chão Beverly Hills was kind enough to donate a raffle prize of a dinner for two for our Shop Local, Get Local Holiday initiative for week 2! We also had a chance to chat with Melissa, from Fogo de Chão:
