Fogo de Chão to open new restaurant at Walt Whitman Shops, Huntington Station, New York
GH+A Design Studios tapped for the project, restaurant features eye-catching marble exterior
Brazilian churrascaria-style chain Fogo de Chão will open a new restaurant in Huntington Station, N.Y. at the Walt Whitman Shops. Located in an upscale Simon property in the neighborhood, the newest location will be the fourth unit in the Metro-New York area and second on Long Island.
Fogo de Chão tapped GH+A Design Studios to create the expansive restaurant. It will feature a bar, lounge and an authentic churrasco grill on full display in the dining space. The added visual effect will help guests embrace the churrascaria experience. What’s more, Fogo’s gaucho chefs will be on display, preparing and grilling different cuts of meat over an open flame—churrasco-style.
The Huntington Station Fogo de Chão will also include an open-air outdoor patio. This newest Fogo de Chão follows locations opened in Carle Place, White Plains and Manhattan in the New York area.
The 300-seat restaurant will also feature an eye-catching marble exterior, soaring windows, modern chandeliers, and natural wood paneling. The furnishings sport colors that reflect the brand’s Brazilian heritage. A glass-encased wine room will display several South American varietals, and a dry-aged meat cabinet provides in-house aging.
“Fogo offers a unique dining experience that goes beyond a traditional restaurant setting,” said Barry McGowan, Chief Executive Officer of Fogo de Chão. “We’ve been fortunate to be able to bring our experience to New Yorkers for nearly 10 years, and we look forward to soon serving our trademark Brazilian hospitality to guests in Huntington Station, as well.”
Fogo’s hand-carved, fire-roasted meats, including premium, dry-aged cuts and Wagyu steaks are a main attraction. Seafood options, seasonal dishes, and fresh fruits and vegetables are available on the Market Table. In addition, the restaurant chain will provide a $15 weekday lunch offering at Huntington Station.
Adult beverage choices include Brazilian-inspired cocktails, award-winning South American wines, premium whiskey and bourbon, and All-Day Happy Hour at the bar and in the dining room. Customers can order Fogo To-Go and off-site catering from this location, as well.
