Orland Park, IL – April 5, 2019 -- Texas de Brazil Churrascaria opens in the Orland Square Mall in Orland Park, IL tonight at 5 p.m., making this the third Chicagoland location and 62nd worldwide. Located at 856 Orland Square Drive, the family-owned Brazilian steakhouse brand is renowned for its beautiful decor, exceptional fire-roasted meats and rodizio-style dining experience which introduces a unique blend of Brazilian culture combined with generous Texas hospitality.
“We are very proud to open our third Chicagoland location in this premier shopping destination and look forward to becoming part of this rich community,” says Salim Asrawi, Chief Operating Officer of Texas de Brazil. “We are happy to expand our availability in the region where we’ve gained some exceptional fans of our distinctive dining experience,” he adds.
Texas de Brazil Churrascarias feature an open-view grill, a salad area offering chef-crafted salads and fresh, hot and cold specialty dishes, an intimate lounge, and an impressive wine list. The Orland Park location also offers semi-private dining space.
Guests begin the rodizio-style meal by visiting the seasonal salad area. The variety of options help make this a steakhouse even vegetarians love.™ Selections range from artisan breads, imported cheeses, fresh buffalo mozzarella, steamed asparagus with marmalade sauce, Brazilian hearts of palm, spicy shrimp salad, sushi, sautéed mushrooms, feijoada (black beans), jasmine rice, Moqueca (Brazilian coconut fish stew), lobster bisque and much more.
Flame-roasted meats take center stage during the main course, expertly prepared by gauchos (servers) who grill mouthwatering cuts over natural wood charcoal – a Brazilian tradition passed down through generations. When guests turn over a two-sided disc located at each seat from red to green, gauchos begin to parade by, carving slow-roasted meats tableside. Succulent picanha (sirloin), lamb chops, filet mignon, leg of lamb, Parmesan-crusted pork loin, bacon wrapped chicken breast and more are offered to expectant guests. When a break is needed, guests simply turn discs back to red. This method helps pace the experience, allowing guests to choose a leisurely meal with friends and family or efficient gatherings for those on a tight schedule, and perfect for parties both large and small.
An expertly curated wine collection includes vintages from acclaimed California and South American vineyards and also features Texas de Brazil’s private label selection of six varietals bottled in Chile exclusively for the restaurant group. The intimate lounge offers craft cocktails including the traditional Brazilian Caipirinha in a variety of flavors and a full selection of distilled spirits, beer and soft drinks including the Brazilian Guarana. Guests may enjoy Happy Hour Monday through Friday with special drink pricing and an appetizing bar menu.
Desserts served a la carte satisfy those with a sweet tooth with selections including flan, deliciously rich papaya cream and Brazilian Cheesecake plus specialties such as pecan pie, carrot cake, and key lime pie.
