Brazilian-American churrasco-style chain expands in California with fifth location there
Texas de Brazil opened a new restaurant in Concord, California at The Veranda, an upscale shopping and dining center. Bringing the presentation and experience of churrasco-style dining to the East Bay area, the Dallas-based chain continues to expand in the Golden State with its fifth restaurant there.
The buildout is spacious and features refined appointments, including a salad-station area made of white marble. The Veranda Texas de Brazil also boasts a wine cellar, in which customers can browse wine selections, as well as an expansive patio for al-fresco dining and private events.
“Texas de Brazil’s authentic approach for delivering the cuisine of Southern Brazil has flourished around the world and we’re excited to open our doors to the residents and visitors of Contra Costa County,” said Salim Asrawi, president of Texas de Brazil.
The Brazilian-American steakhouse brand provides rodizio-style dining, a tradition in which restaurant gauchos bring fire-roasted meats to the table. Diners start their evening at the salad bar for hot and cold selections to accompany their protein-rich meals.
These are some salad-bar choices that start dinner:
- artisan breads
- imported cheeses
- grilled vegetables
- Brazilian hearts of palm
- spicy shrimp salad
- couscous pasta
- sautéed mushrooms
- feijoada (black beans)
- jasmine rice
- lobster bisque + more
Added Asrawi, “We look forward to offering a unique, upscale dining experience that excites the guest and exceeds their culinary expectations.”
Texas de Brazil will offer beef, lamb, pork, chicken, and Brazilian sausage choices, carved at the table, which may include the following:
- filet mignon
- barbecued pork ribs
- leg of lamb
- parmesan drumettes
