|Fogo de Chao salad bar will be part of the Boston location.|
The concept is to serve churrasco, a traditional form of roasting meats over an open fire, tableside. There is also a hot and cold salad bar with more than 30 Brazilian side dishes.
The dining room has been renovated to feature imported Brazilian stone and slate; a glass-encased 3,000-bottle wine cellar; private dining with high-tech capabilities; bar/lounge and a dining room that will essentially seat 320. Guests will pay $28.50 per person for lunch and $46.50 per person for dinner, which includes the continuous service of 16 cuts of meats, tableside, and the salad bar with Brazilian side dishes. For the salad bar only, it’s $22.50 per person for lunch and dinner. Beverages and desserts are a la carte. Fogo de Chao ( 617-585-6300) will be open for lunch and dinner.
Boston Chops, a “steak bistro,” is coming along and is slated to open in the former Ginger Park space (1375 Washington St., South End) Winter 2012. Brian Piccini and Chris Coombs (Deuxave, dbar) are behind the concept.
