Texas de Brazil opens Friday in the city of Rancho Cucamonga. The restaurant is located at 12369 Foothills Blvd., more famously known as Route 66.
Texas de Brazil’s family-owned churrascarias are renowned for their time-honored tradition of churrasco-style cooking combined with generous southern hospitality and superior service.
“We’re looking forward to introducing our unique dining concept and Brazilian fare to guests in this rapidly growing community and are excited to bring a special destination along one of the most famous driving routes in America,” says Salim Asrawi, president of Texas de Brazil.
The new restaurant features soaring ceilings with unique light fixtures and an extravagant salad area made of white marble and adorned with a lavish flower arrangement. Guests can enjoy a drink in the intimate lounge area or browse for their favorite wines in the elegant wine cellar. The restaurant features one exclusively private dining room decorated with elegant furnishings and complete with a stunning wood table that accommodates up to 14 guests. Patio dining is also available for regular seating and for private events.
The highlights of this rodizio-style dining experience are the continuous servings of fire-roasted meats and unlimited plates from the chef-crafted salad area.
The experience begins with a visit to the expansive salad area where hot and cold side specialty dishes offer delicious variety.
Salad Area Selections include artisan breads, imported cheeses, grilled vegetables, Brazilian hearts of palm, spicy shrimp salad, couscous pasta, sautéed mushrooms, feijoada (black beans), jasmine rice, lobster bisque and much more.
The main course or star of the show – a savory variety of flame-grilled meats that are expertly prepared and carved at the table by the restaurant gauchos.
Churrasco Selections include cuts of beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, such as filet mignon, barbecued pork ribs, leg of lamb, Parmesan drumettes and the guest’s favorite, picanha.
A good wine nicely complements the flavors of churrasco and Texas de Brazil’s curated wine list includes acclaimed varietals from California and South America vineyards as well as Texas de Brazil’s exclusive private label collection of six varietals bottled in Chile.
A full bar offers craft cocktails including the traditional Caipirinha in a variety of flavors plus a full selection of distilled spirits and beer (domestic and Brazilian).
For those with a sweet tooth, no meal is complete without dessert and guests can indulge in selections including house-made flan, triple layer chocolate mousse cake, cheesecake and more, all served a la carte.
