Brazilian steakhouse Chama Gaucha will open for lunch and dinner this March in Buckhead in the same plaza as Farm Burger on Piedmont Road (3365 Piedmont Road). In true churrascaria style, the restaurant will revolve around an antipasti bar that will showcase charcuterie, cheese, and salads. Slow-roasted, high quality cuts of meat cooked over an open fire will be paraded around the restaurant on spits. Picanha, the prime cut of the sirloin, will be the house specialty.
Executive chef Ederson Cunha, a native of southern Brazil, grew up cooking around the churrasco (Brazilian for firepit) and has teamed up with general manager Nelcir Muller and Restaurants Consulting Group. “The Chama Gaucha team fell in love with the thriving, dynamic Buckhead neighborhood,” Muller says. “We are excited to be a part of the growing community and the resurgence of Buckhead as one of Atlanta’s best dining neighborhoods.”
With locations in Houston, San Antonio, and Chicago, this is the group’s first restaurant in the Southeast. Inside the restaurant, you can expect gold-textured ceilings, flowing draperies, and a color palette of tans and browns. Fire pits and an outdoor bar will be on the patio, where guests can order from a menu of small plates.
