With its ever growing list of top restaurants, food trucks and other chef-driven concepts, it can be overwhelming to decide where to eat in Washington, D.C. But a popular place for indulging — perhaps especially now that the Lenten season is over — is Fogo de Chão.
At its convenient downtown location, there’s always been something for everyone, whether it’s endless cuts of meat served just how you prefer them, or a salad bar with seemingly boundless selections. We’ve never heard of anyone leaving Fogo unsatisfied… but now the feasting favorite has added even more to its menu.
Besides that full churrasco experience, which now includes new pork selections and other lighter cuts for the warmer weather, there are also Market Table additions that include seasonal ingredients; a Crème de Coconut traditional Brazilian dessert; and a new seasonal cocktail — the Blood Orange Manhattan.
And then there’s the new wine — which paired with all of our favorites perfectly — and honestly had us asking about buying bottles to take home! “Eulila,” a red wine blend specially created exclusively for the restaurant by the award-winning winemakers at Viña Vik, is now available by the glass or bottle at Fogo de Chão. It blends Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah grapes from the Cachapoal Valley in Chile and pays tribute to Eulila “Selma” Oliveira, Chief Culture Officer of Fogo de Chão.
Looking to feast — with some new red wine finesse? Don’t forget about Fogo!
