Brazilian-American steakhouse brand expands in Alabama, bringing authentic churrasco and rodizio-style dining to the Gulf Coast
Texas de Brazil Churrascaria introduces its newest location and third restaurant in Alabama when doors open tonight at The Shoppes at Bel Air in Mobile. Located at 3201 Airport Blvd., the Brazilian-American steakhouse brand renowned for its authentic churrasco and rodizio-style dining features a vibrantly decorated 6,500 square-foot dining room seating 194 guests plus an open grill kitchen, expansive salad area, an intimate lounge and award-winning wine cellar. The family-owned restaurant group adds Mobile to its Alabama locations already established in Huntsville and Birmingham, and Texas de Brazils are now feeding guests’ appetite for churrasco in 20 states and seven countries worldwide.
“We are incredibly pleased by our continued growth in the Alabama market and are excited to introduce the churrasco dining experience to Mobile locals and visitors alike,” says Salim Asrawi, Chief Operating Officer of Texas de Brazil. “This opening on the Gulf Coast arrives just one month before Texas de Brazil’s 20-year anniversary and we are thrilled to join this community as we expand our family of restaurants,” he adds.
The Brazilian-American steakhouse is a unique dining venue that is perfect for any guests seeking original Brazilian churrasco, where all meats are grilled to perfection over natural wood charcoal – a gaucho tradition passed down through generations.
Visitors to the new restaurant can expect to be treated to unparalleled service as well as authentic cuisine. To begin dinner, guests start with a trip to the always-fresh salad area which includes a variety of gourmet artisan breads, imported cheeses, fresh buffalo mozzarella, steamed asparagus with marmalade sauce, Brazilian hearts of palm, shrimp salad, sushi, sautéed mushrooms, feijoada (black beans), jasmine rice, Moqueca and much more.
Servers stand ready to begin carving the delicious grilled meats tableside when guests flip a two-sided disc at each seat from red to green. This indicates that a guest is ready to begin enjoying the variety of churrasco grilled meats including Brazilian picanha (sirloin), lamb chops, filet mignon, leg of lamb, Parmesan-crusted pork loin, bacon wrapped chicken breast and more. When a break is needed in the unending flow of mouthwatering meats, guests simply turn their disc back to red. This unique style of dining helps guests fit Texas de Brazil into any timeframe – from leisurely meals with friends and family or efficient visits with business associates.
A private dining venue for up to 30 guests offers a special place for small gatherings, while the remarkable wine collection complements any occasion with varietals from acclaimed California and South America vineyards to Texas de Brazil’s exclusive private label selection bottled in Chile. The lounge offers craft cocktails including the traditional Brazilian Caipirinha in a variety of flavors and a full selection of specialty cocktails, beer and soft drinks including the Brazilian Guarana.
