Award-winning churrascaria, Texas de Brazil opened its first restaurant in Dubai. The 5,550-square-foot restaurant features a chef's table, an open-view grill in the dining area, and accommodates 190 guests. Located in the Mall of the Emirates' Level 2 expansion, the new Dubai location is the company's 41st restaurant and sixth international location.
"We're thrilled to partner with Gourmet Gulf and open our first restaurant in Dubai," says Salim Asrawi, chief operating officer of Texas de Brazil. "Mall of the Emirates is one of the finest malls in the world and the perfect location to introduce our unique Brazilian-American churrascaria dining experience to Dubai residents and international visitors.”
"The food and hospitality industry in Dubai is thriving and there is growing demand for best in class international restaurants. Mall of the Emirates is one of the largest shopping destinations in the UAE with a vibrant food scene, and is an ideal location for us to launch the highly successful Texas de Brazil dining experience to UAE residents and visitors," adds Sami Daud, executive chairman of Gourmet Gulf.
At each table, Gauchos carve an array of grilled beef, lamb, prawns, chicken, and sausage, as directed by the guest's red and green disks that indicate when to bring more meat or when a break is needed. The steakhouse also offers an elaborate salad area, decorated by large tropical flowers, and featuring over 50 fresh gourmet items, such as imported cheeses, charcuterie, roasted vegetables, and lobster bisque. Texas de Brazil also offers a variety of beverages and decadent desserts from the a-la-carte menu, which includes a selection of specialty mocktails.
