The plan includes interior renovations

BRIDGEWATER, NJ — The famed Brazilian steakhouse, Fogo de Chao Churrascaria, has unveiled plans for its newest location in the Bridgewater Commons.

The new restaurant is proposed to renovate an existing portion of the mall and consists of 8,372 square feet in space. Fogo de Chao Churrascaria will be located next to the mall entrance in an open space across from Uncle Julio's and Cheesecake Factory.

The space was previously used for general retail and is currently vacant, according to the application.

The proposed plan does not change the existing footprint or height of the mall. The plan includes interior renovations, modification of an existing outdoor patio area for outdoor dining, façade renovations, a new vestibule with a direct exterior entrance/exit, and new signage.

No variances are being requested.
