Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chão is all set to open in Dubai’s DIFC at Central Park Towers this month. The opening marks Fogo’s second location in the Middle East with joint venture partner the Enany Group of Companies, and its 51st location globally.

Fogo de Chão, which began in Brazil, has locations around the world including São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, New York City, Beverly Hills, Miami, Mexico City and Jeddah, to name a few.

“Dubai is an exquisite global destination and we are delighted to share Fogo de Chão’s Brazilian hospitality, cuisine and churrasco dining experience with this city’s residents and international visitors alike,” says Larry Johnson, CEO, Fogo de Chão. “We are proud to be part of Dubai’s dynamic culinary scene, and to continue our international growth with this exciting new location.”

“We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with Fogo de Chão, bringing its high quality food, unique Brazilian dining experience and talented gaucho chefs to Dubai, following the successful launch of the Jeddah restaurant in August 2017,” adds Fahad Enany.

Located in Dubai’s sophisticated DIFC district, the new Fogo de Chão is ideally situated near City Walk, Emirates Towers and Downtown Dubai. In addition to a main dining area, the location will also boast the Fogo Bar & Lounge, a shisha lounge, private dining areas, courtyard and an outdoor terrace with striking views of the Burj Khalifa.

Fogo de Chão opened its first restaurant in the Middle East to great fanfare last August in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The new Dubai restaurant will be serving Fogo’s signature selection of premium cuts of meat, a gourmet Market Table of fresh seasonal salads, fruits and vegetables and an extensive list of craft cocktails, elevated spirits and an award-winning wine list assembled by Fogo’s sommeliers.
