Fogo De Chao, Pasadena’s newest Brazilian steakhouse, will open its doors to Pasadena’s hungry public on Friday.

The owners promise a new look at the restaurant and its open-air churrasco bar where guests will dine and watch gaucho chefs display the Southern Brazilian culinary art of churrasco as they butcher, prepare and grill different cuts of meat over an open flame.

The restaurant’s chefs will prepare the specialty cuts the restaurant is known for, all cut using, of course, a gaucho sword,.

The eatery showcases dry-aged meat lockers for in-house aging and a lively indoor Bar Fogo area.

Owned by the international Rhone Group, the Pasadena location will be the 68th location worldwide for the chain. Fogo de Chao, headquartered in Plano, Texas, opened its first restaurant in Porto Alegre, Brazil in 1979, then expanded to São Paulo in 1986, and to the U.S. in 1997.

Today, the company has restaurants in the U.S., Brazil and Mexico.

The new Fogo de Chao is at 234 East Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena, CA.
