Reston Town Center welcomed a Brazilian steak house to its mix of tenants earlier this month.

Fogo de Chão opened on Friday (Dec. 2) at 11915 Democracy Drive. A portion of the first week of sales will go to Reston-based nonprofit organization Cornerstones, along with unused meals.

The Reston location is led by general manager Fabrizzio Silveira,who has borne and raised in Brazil. He started his career with the company in New Orleans and the gaucho chef.

“We are proud of our brand’s rapid growth in recent years as we expand in new and existing cities, and credit that to our differentiated dining experience and our humble roots from Brazil,” Fogo de Chão CEO Barry McGowan said. “We’ve been fortunate to be able to bring our experience to the Metro D.C. area for nearly 17 years.”

The Reston location is the company’s 70th steakhouse and the fourth in the D.C. metro area, joining one in Tysons.

The restaurant is centered around an open-air churrasco grill where chefs demonstrate the art of churrasco. Meats are butchered, prepared and grilled over an open flame.

The Reston location also includes tall wine ales, dry-aged meat lockers for in-house against and a bar area. A lounge on the mezzanine level is also a part of the design.
