Fogo de Chao Is Opening at Westin Copley Place in Boston's Back Bay
Two months after first reporting on the possibility of its opening, it has now been confirmed that a Brazilian steakhouse chain is indeed coming to the Back Bay of Boston.
According to Adam's Hospitality & Tourism Industry Blog, Fogo de Chao will be opening at the Westin Copley Place, moving into the space where The Palm had been until closing at the beginning of the year. (The Palm is planning to open at One International Place in the Financial District possibly as early as this fall.) Once Fogo de Chao opens, the churrascaria will feature a salad and sides bar, along with tableside service where diners can choose from such fire-roasted meats as filet mignon, rib eye, sirloin, beef and pork ribs, pork loin, lamb, chicken, and sausage. Drinks (most likely including beer, wine, and spirits) and dessert options will be available as well.
Adam's article mentions that the Brazil-based Fogo de Chao, which currently has 18 branches in the United States, is expected to open either in late August or early September.
[September 18 update: A more recent article from Adam's Hospitality & Tourism Industry Blog indicates (via Westin Copley Place) that Fogo de Chao is now planning to open in early November.]
[October 10 update: The Boston Herald is reporting that Fogo de Chao is going to be opening for dinner on November 2, with lunch starting up on November 5.]
The address for this new Brazilian steakhouse in the Back Bay is: Fogo de Chao, 200 Dartmouth Street, Boston, MA, 02116. The website for the chain can be found at http://www.fogodechao.com/
