Big Ten & Fogo de Chao opens in Rosemont
The Big Ten athletic con-ference and Fogo de Chão restaurant have moved in to their new quarters in Rose-mont’s entertainment district.
The Big Ten’s first day in-side the new three-level building at the south end of MB Financial Park at Rosemont was Monday Oct. 7, 2013. The Big Ten’s offices have been located in Park Ridge for many years at Dee and Touhy avenues.
Fogo de Chao’s dining ex-perience is based on the centuries old gaucho tradition known as churrasco, the art of roasting meats over an open fire.
"The Rosemont opening is a milestone for us as we celebrate our second Chica-goland opening and the first time in the United States that Fogo has opened two restau-rants within a market,” said company CEO Larry Johnson.
The new Fogo location in the MB Financial Park at Rosemont boasts more than 10,000 sq. ft. and 260 seats. The restaurant is providing approximately 200 local jobs. For reservations call 847-678-7200 or visit their website www.fogodechao.com
