Fogo de Chao slated for winter opening in Reston Town Center

The Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chão is on track for a winter opening in Reston Town Center, according to a company spokesperson.

The steakhouse — which takes over space previously occupied by Big Bowl at 11915 Democracy Drive– has issued a hiring call for 130 positions.

Fabrizzio Silveira the Reston location’s general manager, says the restaurant’s culinary art of churrasco sets it apart from other steakhouses in the town center.

“The Reston Town Center is home to some of Reston’s world-class business and retail concepts. At Fogo de Chao, we are all about providing guests with a dining experience of discovery and we’re excited to bring that to the Reston community,” Silveira wrote in a statement.

The restaurant plans to donate a portion of its first week of sales to Cornerstones, a Reston-based nonprofit organization. 

Renovations and upgrades to the interior and exterior of the site are underway. Earlier this year, Et Jolie, a lifestyle AVEDA salon and spa, temporarily relocated at 1826 Discovery Street, right by the ice skating rink, to make more space for the restaurant.

The Reston location will include an indoor bar, dry-aged meat lockers for in-house aging, wine cases, and a new lounge on the mezzanine level. 

Fogo de Chão launched its first location in Porto Alegre, Brazil in 1979. The first U.S. location opened in Dallas in 1997.

Since then, the company has 45 locations across the country and others throughout the world.
