“Love steaks and meats? Have to stop by this upscale restaurant while visit Atlanta. Located in the heart of Buckhead and Spruill Center Development in Dunwoody. The Atlanta Fogo brings a taste of Brazil to the city’s uptown district. Brazilian hues complement the stacked stone fireplace in the lounge and the magnificent wine wall in the dining room. The cobalt blue tower displays our signature churrasqueira grill, inviting patrons to view the cooking process as it still exists in Southern Brazil.”

“Note from R. Thomas: We started out as a funky burger joint, inspired by some free-spritied souls from San Fransisco, with non stop breakfast, a kinda healthy air, and a 24 hour heart. "I lost the keys to the place on opening day, so we just stayed open" chuckles R and we were off and running. ​ Come 1990, R was inspired again. We just found a little thing called Gravity Bar, which makes fresh juice for people to order. R just had to have one. So to make room he took all the tables and chairs out of the building. "Wait a minute" I piped up, "Where are the folks going to sit? Thought you gave up on drive-thru windows! Are people just going to sit outside?" Of course! Little did I know the vision that was taking place, as some modest outside seating was transformed into the lush covered-garden patio oasis we are happy to serve our guest under today. Once you start changing things, people take notice. We started offering fresh carrot juice to serve alongside burgers, and new friends came along to help us out. Under the instruction of our consulting chef and nutritionist Donna Gates (author of the Body Ecology Diet), we started to really explore the healing power of food. ​ We decided to expand our horizons and offer a broad variety. "We treat carnivores and vegetarians with equal respect" says R, but it is more than just that. High quality ingredients: cold pressed organic oils for cooking and dressings, fresh produce, home grown herbs from our garden, local organic honey and bee pollen, organic grains, ocean vegetables, free-range chicken, organic range eggs, natural range beef and organic salmon, wild caught tuna, powerful superfoods like kefir and raw cultured vegetables are the cornerstones of a menu that honors everyone's food choices. No matter when you come or wherever you may be in your dining and nutrition path, from our family to yours, welcome to R. Thomas! ​ - James Russel Thomas”
