Texas de Brazil Opens Milestone 50th Restaurant
Texas de Brazil Churrascaria, the largest Brazilian steakhouse chain in the world, reaches a new milestone as the family-owned group's 50th restaurant opened at Sawgrass Mills Mall in Sunrise, Florida. The new 7,000 square foot dining destination accommodates over 200 guests and features an open-view grill in the dining area, a wine wall, and a cozy lounge area. Located in the largest outlet and value retail shopping destination in the U.S., this marks the ninth Florida location for Texas de Brazil.
"We feel fortunate and very proud to open our 50th restaurant with the same leadership team responsible for opening our first location over 18 years ago," says Salim Asrawi, chief operating officer, Texas de Brazil. "We look forward to complementing this location's dynamic retail and entertainment environment with earnest hospitality and the culinary authenticity we strive to deliver to every guest we welcome."
Texas de Brazil treats guests to an upscale, continuous dining experience and a service style that is alive and theatrical. Dinner begins at the enticing 50-item salad area featuring Brazilian specialties, fresh salads, imported cheeses, charcuterie, roasted vegetables, smoked salmon and creamy lobster bisque. Renowned for its genuine rodizio-style dining, patrons are also treated to freshly-grilled meats carved tableside from skewers by "gauchos" who deliver succulent lamb chops, leg of lamb, picanha, filet mignon, chicken breasts wrapped in bacon, Brazilian sausages and more. Diners pace their feasting with a simple green or red disk that indicates when they're ready to welcome additional servings. Every Texas de Brazil restaurant uses the time-honored method of grilling meat over charcoal, resulting in savory aroma and exceptional flavor. Tempting desserts are served a la carte for those seeking sweets.
An extensive wine wall houses private label wines bottled exclusively for Texas de Brazil by Santa Rita Vineyards in Chile, and an award-winning collection including DUAO Vineyards wine from Pasos Robles, California. Beijos Bar and Lounge offers signature cocktails including the Brazilian favorite, the Caipirinha, plus an array of premium spirits and specialty cocktails. Happy Hour specials are featured Monday through Friday.
The new Texas de Brazil is located at 2606 Sawgrass Mills Circle, Unit 1301B, near the Regal Sawgrass Stadium 23 & IMAX theater, and just 15 minutes from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport or 30 minutes from Miami International Airport.
