International Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chão has opened the doors of its new Huntington Station location inside the Walt Whitman Mall.
It’s the fourth Fogo de Chão location restaurant in New York and just the second on Long Island — following spots in White Plains, Manhattan, and the Smith Haven Mall. Sandwiched between the Cheesecake Factory and Panera Bread, the new eatery is located near the Bloomingdale’s entrance.
Founded in 1979, Fogo de Chão, which translates to campfire, or fire on the ground, uses a traditional, centuries-old Brazilian technique called churrasco, which involves roasting meat over an open flame.
The cultural dining experience includes access to a wide variety of butchered meats. Dry-aged or premium Waygu cuts – fire-roasted and carved tableside by gaucho chefs – are part of the mix.
