Texas de Brazil opens Wisconsin Brazilian-American steakhouse


Texas de Brazil Churrascaria introduces its authentic churrasco and rodizio-style dining for the first time in Wisconsin. Conveniently located just 20 minutes outside of Milwaukee, the family-owned Brazilian-American steakhouse is now available in 19 states and seven countries worldwide.

“We are proud to open our first Wisconsin churrascaria in the community of Wauwatosa and the dynamic Mayfair Mall location,” says Salim Asrawi, Chief Operating Officer for the largest Brazilian-American steakhouse brand in the world. “It is always exciting to introduce new guests to our authentic churrasco and genuine service and we look forward to becoming an integral part of the community,” he adds.

The Brazilian-American steakhouse is recognized for featuring a unique blend of Brazilian culture complemented by the generous hospitality of Texas. The new 10,000 square-foot restaurant accommodates over 300 guests in an energetic environment that features an expansive salad area, an open grill kitchen, a feature table, wine cellar, an intimate lounge, private dining for up to 60 guests, and semi-private dining space.

Guests of Texas de Brazil enjoy a lively, upscale dining experience and engaging service. Inside the colorful restaurant, guests begin dinner with a visit to the enticing salad area featuring over 50 hot and cold selections including Brazilian specialties such as Moqueca (Brazilian fish stew), freshly-prepared salads, charcuterie and imported cheeses, roasted vegetables, smoked salmon, creamy lobster bisque and much more.

Renowned for its rodizio-style dining, guests are also treated to a continuous dining experience that showcases freshly-grilled meats on skewers carved tableside by costumed gauchos. Selections range from succulent picanha (sirloin), lamb chops, leg of lamb, filet mignon, chicken breasts wrapped in bacon, to Brazilian sausages and more. At all Texas de Brazils, gauchos use the time-honored methods of grilling meats over charcoal, resulting in savory aroma and exceptional flavor. When guests are ready to begin sampling the meats, a red and green disc on the table allows each to pace service. Green indicates to the gauchos when additional servings are welcome while red indicates a break is needed. This style of service helps make the dining experience fit into a tight schedule or a relaxed and leisurely meal with friends, family, and business associates.

Decadent desserts are served a la carte for those with a sweet tooth, and an impressive wine collection features private label wines bottled exclusively for Texas de Brazil by Santa Rita Vineyards in Chile. Guests may also choose from an award-winning variety of labels from the world’s top wineries or toast with signature cocktails including a traditional Caipirinha and an array of premium spirits and specialty libations.
