A well-known Brazilian restaurant is opening in Elmhurst next week, across from the Queens Center Mall.

Fogo de Chão, which currently has 68 locations globally, is opening its Queens restaurant on Friday Nov. 25—its second in New York City. Its other New York City restaurant is in midtown Manhattan.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming the Queens community through our doors and giving our guests a taste of the authentic Brazilian hospitality Fogo is known for,” said Barry McGowan, Chief Executive Officer of Fogo de Chão, which was founded in Southern Brazil in 1979.

The restaurant is known for its fire-roasted meats including Ribeye, Lamb Chops and the house specialty, Picanha, the prime part of the top sirloin.

The Queens location features an expansive dining room centered around a peninsula churrasco grill, offering its customers a 360-degree view of gaucho chefs butchering, hand carving and grilling high-quality cuts of protein over an open flame. A white Carrera marble Market Table is anchored at the front of the grill featuring seasonal salads, fresh super foods, cured meats, antipasti and more.

The restaurant will also showcase dry-aged meat lockers for in-house aging, a lively indoor bar area and private dining spaces available for guests to reserve for any occasion.

The Queens establishment is led by General Manager Katie Calvin, who started her career with Fogo in 2019 as a Gaucha in Portland, OR. The restaurant is currently hiring.

The restaurant will donate a portion of its first week of sales to the Eduardo Escobar Foundation, which was established by the New York Mets third baseman. The foundation provides food, medical supplies, and other necessities to people in Venezuela, Escobar’s native country.
