Award-winning churrascaria, Texas de Brazil opened in Westlake, Ohio. The new 7,500-square-foot restaurant accommodates 220 guests and features an open-view grill in the dining area, a wine wall, private dining, and a bar/lounge area. Located in Crocker Park Shopping Center, the new Crocker Park location is the company's 43rd restaurant and second in Ohio. Texas de Brazil opened in Columbus in 2013.

"We're excited to bring the art of churrasco, cooking over an open flame, to Crocker Park," says Evandro Caregnato, culinary director, Texas de Brazil. "As a native Gaucho who grew up in Rio Grande do Sul, the birthplace of churrasco, I'm proud that Texas de Brazil cooks all of our meats in the churrasco tradition that I learned from my grandfather. We've had great success with our authentic Brazilian-American churrascaria dining experience in Columbus and we're thrilled to open a second location in Ohio."

The restaurant's menu combines the cuisine of Southern Brazil with the spirit of Texas. At each table, Gauchos will carve an array of grilled beef, lamb, pork, 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, beautifully decorated by large tropical flowers and featuring 50 fresh gourmet items, such as imported cheeses, charcuterie, Brazilian black beans, roasted vegetables, and creamy lobster bisque. Texas de Brazil also offers an extensive award-winning wine list, rich in South American varietals, to further enhance the dining experience.
