by Katie Lee

New York City — Fogo de Chão, the internationally-renowned restaurant from Brazil, has signed a lease agreement for its fourth New York City location joining existing restaurants in Midtown Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn at City Point (opening soon). The new 5,009-square-foot restaurant is scheduled to open in 2024 at The Oculus at Westfield World Trade Center, the largest shopping complex in Manhattan with 125 retail shops.

Located at the corner of Church and Cortland streets with convenient street-level access, the restaurant will offer a new dining experience to the 10 million annual visitors of the World Trade Center Oculus complex. 2023 has proven to be another strong year for Fogo with 22 new domestic and international leases signed and recent openings in key U.S. markets including Providence, R.I.; Huntington Beach, Calif.; Thousand Oaks, Calif.; Irving, Texas; Emeryville, Calif.; and Wayne, N.J.

“We are excited to open another restaurant in Manhattan after a decade since our debut in Midtown on 53rd,” says Barry McGowan, chief executive officer of Fogo de Chão. “As we expand our East Coast presence, we continue to see the growing demand for the culinary art of churrasco that we uniquely offer at Fogo.”

Designed in partnership with global architecture and design agency Harrison, the World Trade Center restaurant will showcase Fogo’s recent brand transformation with enhanced design and innovation platforms in a warm, timeless and approachable setting.

The restaurant marks the ninth Fogo location in the New York DMA, joining locations in Midtown Manhattan; Long Island; Huntington Station; White Plains; Queens; Brooklyn; Paramus, N.J.; and Wayne, N.J.

Founded in Southern Brazil in 1979, Fogo de Chão elevates the centuries-old cooking technique of churrasco, which is the art of roasting high-quality cuts of meat over an open flame. For more information visit
