Texas de Brazil Churrascaria continues expansion into new markets, opening its 53rd Brazilian-American steakhouse today at The Summit at Fritz Farm development in South Lexington. The family-owned restaurant treats guests to authentic churrasco-style grilled meats and a continuous dining experience that blends the unique culture of Brazil with the generous hospitality of Texas.
"We welcome the opportunity to introduce our churrasco to Lexington residents and visitors, and are proud to be one of the first restaurants to open in this exceptional new development," says Salim Asrawi, Chief Operating Officer, Texas de Brazil. "We look forward to becoming a supportive and engaged member of this community and fashionable center," he adds.
The new 7500 square-foot restaurant accommodates over 200 guests and features a bright and energetic interior with an open-view grill, impressive salad area, wine wall, intimate lounge and a private dining space for up to 26 guests.
Texas de Brazil treats guests to an upscale dining experience and a service style that is alive and unique. Inside the colorfully-decorated restaurant, guests begin their meal with a visit to 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 costumed "gauchos" who deliver succulent picanha (sirloin), lamb chops, leg of lamb, filet mignon, chicken breasts wrapped in bacon, Brazilian sausages and more. Every Texas de Brazil restaurant uses the time-honored method of grilling meat over charcoal, resulting in savory aroma and exceptional flavor. Patrons pace their dining experience with a simple flip of the green or red disk that indicates when they are ready for additional servings and when they need a break.
Tempting desserts are served a la carte for those seeking sweets and an impressive wine wall houses private label wines bottled exclusively for Texas de Brazil by Santa Rita Vineyards in Chile, and an award-winning collection of vintages from the world's top wineries. Beijos Bar and Lounge offers signature cocktails including the Brazilian favorite, the Caipirinha, plus an array of premium spirits and specialty cocktails.
"We are thrilled that Texas de Brazil chose The Summit at Fritz Farm for its flagship Kentucky location and are excited for the Lexington community to explore their flavor-filled menu," said Lindsay Bayer, creative director for Bayer Properties. "The concept will provide a unique experience for our guests who are eager to discover a Brazilian steakhouse," says Bayer.
