Summer Menu Items at Fogo de Chao

Enjoy several new menu items this summer, for a limited time, at the fabulous Fogo de Chao! Temperatures are finally heating up in Chicago and the internationally-renowned Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chão is inviting guests to beat the heat with refreshing menu additions perfect for summer. Fogo’s summer innovations offer something for everyone to enjoy at Fogo, from a new light but decadent cut of meat, seasonal fruits and vegetables to a zero-proof mocktail.

I LOVE WATERMELON!

And they have a delicious Watermelon Fresca Cocktail (Non-Alcoholic): Made with ripe watermelon, lime and ice, this refreshing mocktail is a seasonal addition to Fogo’s non-alcoholic beverage lineup, which includes fan favorites Grapefruit Elderflower Spritz and Pineapple Mint Lemonade. – But you can add a dash of your favorite vodka as well!

And on their Market Table you have to have some of Watermelon Feta Salad (juicy watermelon tossed with feta cheese, summer basil, fresh mint and black pepper) and Tomato Mozzarella Salad (ripe tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil and whole milk Buffalo mozzarella).

I also really love cheese! Whenever I go to a Mexican restaurant I love the Queso Fundido! – Fogo does something kind of similar. Queijo Assado: A Brazilian-style cheese that, when grilled, becomes crispy on the outside, yet warm and melted on the inside, finished with a spicy malagueta honey.

A new summer meat choice is Grilled Pork Belly & Pineapple: Smoked pork belly is served with a balsamic glaze and roasted cinnamon pineapple. Simply delicious!

 

“At Fogo, every one of our tables is inspired by the best flavors of Brazil’s farms. Grilling has always been important in Brazil, but never more than during the summer season. That is why our new summer menu launch makes for the ideal time to introduce fire-grilled pork belly and queijo assado, a grilled Brazilian-style cheese, as a complement to churrasco,” said Barry McGowan, Chief Executive Officer of Fogo de Chão. “Our guests can enjoy our light takes on summertime favorites, alongside our year round offerings that have made us a go-to destination for those looking to escape to Brazil on a moment’s notice.”

All summer innovations pair perfectly with Fogo fan favorites like Picanha, the prime part of the top sirloin and signature steak at Fogo, or delicately prepared seafood options, such as Mango Chilean Sea Bass.

For any summertime celebration or getaway, Fogo de Chão offers group and private dining options at all locations. From graduation dinners to wedding rehearsals, Fogo is well-suited for groups of all sizes with customizable menus, private and semi-private dining spaces, and complimentary A/V equipment. In addition, the Full Churrasco Experience is always complimentary for children under six years old and half price for those aged seven – 12.
