Fogo de Chao Churrascaria Plans to Open at the Burlington Mall

It looks like a high-end Brazilian steakhouse chain with one location in Boston may be opening another outlet in the local area, with this one coming to one of the hottest suburbs for dining out.

According to a source, Fogo de Chao is planning to open at the Burlington Mall in Burlington, with a special permit application and a cover letter within the site indicating that it would be opening within a section of the former Sears retail space. If approved, the new restaurant would join another location of Fogo de Chao in Copley Square, and based on that and other locations, expect it to be a full-service all-you-can-eat churrascaria with a variety of meats offered.

Fogo de Chao started out in Brazil approximately 40 years ago and is now headquartered in Texas. Its website can be found at
