Fogo de Chão Officially Opens in Coral Gables

Fogo de Chão, the internationally-acclaimed restaurant from Brazil that allows guests to make culinary discoveries at every turn, opens its new location at 2801 Ponce de Leon Blvd in Coral Gables, FL. The restaurant is in the newly-developed Plaza Coral Gables — an all-in-one hospitality, shopping and entertainment destination just steps away from the coveted Miracle Mile. A portion of first week’s sales will be donated to Feeding South Florida®, benefitting the nonprofit’s dedication to end hunger in the greater Miami area and beyond.

The expansive 280-seat dining room is anchored by an open-air churrasco bar where guests can dine
while watching gaucho chefs showcase the culinary art of churrasco as they butcher, prepare and grill
different cuts of meat over an open flame. Fogo’s seasonal Market Table welcomes guests to discover
fresh salads and soup, exotic fruits, vegetables, imported charcuterie and more. The new restaurant
showcases dry-aged meat lockers for in-house aging, soaring wine cases displaying South America’s
finest varietals, natural wood finishes and dramatic chandeliers across a vaulted ceiling.

Overlooking the dining room is The Next Level Lounge, an exclusive lounge located on the mezzanine
level of the new restaurant providing an elevated bar experience for guests to unwind with a variety of
South American wines and a premium whiskey and bourbon menu. Additionally, the new location
features The Butchery, a grab-and-go market where guests can enjoy charcuterie and a selection of
South American wines while gaucho chefs expertly butcher premium proteins packaged to grill at home.
Guests can also enjoy the expansive outdoor patio for al fresco churrasco dining or meet with friends at
the lively indoor Bar Fogo area, ideal for all-day happy hour.

“We’re proud to have been a part of the Miami-Dade area for the past 14 years and look forward to
bringing our latest innovative experiences to The Gables,” said Barry McGowan, Chief Executive Officer
of Fogo de Chão. “As we continue to grow our brand globally, it’s important that we serve and support
our local community in the best way we know how- by feeding them. That’s why we’re excited to partner
with Feeding South Florida, who helps bring hunger relief to so many families throughout the area.”

Simply seasoned, fire-roasted proteins are the core of the Churrasco dining experience where guests can
discover a variety of flavors ranging from premium filet mignon and bone-in cowboy ribeye; decadent
beef ribs and lamb chops; and house specialties Picanha (prime cut of the top sirloin) and Fraldinha
