Fogo de Chão offers new cocktail menu, satisfying dining experience for Father's Day

Father's Day is just around the corner and if you are one of those procrastinators who just hasn't made plans yet, get on the phone or online and make your reservation asap at Fogo de Chão. The The Brazilian steakhouse recently unveiled its largest bar menu innovation in its 20-year history, with brand new Brazilian-inspired cocktail options. Among the new cocktails is a Berry Mint (with Silver cachaca, blackberries, mint and Woodford Reserve), the Mango Habanero (with Silver cachaca, limes, mano and habanero peppers) and my favorite, the seasonal Strawberry Hibiscus (with Silver cachaca, house-made hibiscus syrup, strawberries and lime.) They also offer the traditional Fogo Caipirinha and a Fogo Premium Caipirinha and an extensive collection of South American wines.

Chicago Foodie Sisters attended a recent media event to celebrate the new cocktail menu at its Lasalle St. location in the city where we also sampled new bar bites. They have a nice Happy Hour menu with some new featured items. It's available weekdays in the bar from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. with tempting small bites, such as Braised Beef Rib Sliders, Spiced Chicken Sliders, Garlic Shrimp and Brazilian Empanadas.

But besides the beverages and small bites, what will really excite dad is what Fogo is known for, it's feast of fire-roasted meats and overflowing market table with premium salads and sides. Meats, meats and more meats until you just can't take another bite. They also have amazing desserts to satisfy the most discerning sweet tooth. Treat dad right this Father's Day with all the steak and pampering he deserves.

Fogo has locations in Chicago, Naperville and Rosemont. For more information, visit
