Brazilian steakhouse chain Fogo de Chão and specialty candy shop It’Sugar are coming to National Harbor.
The pair join a growing mix of tenants that have signed on with National Harbor developer Peterson Cos. for space at the waterfront development since the start of the pandemic, with others including Bombay Street Food, Silver Diner and Tom’s Watch Bar.
Fogo will replace McLoone’s Pier House, which opened in 2010 but closed its 12,154-square-foot space at 141 National Plaza amid the pandemic. The space overlooks the water and includes patio seating. The chain started in 1979 and features fresh cuts of fire-roasted meats, along with salads and traditional Brazilian cocktails.
