Texas de Brazil, a family-owned, Texas-based Churrascaria, is set to open mid to late May on the Magnificent Mile. Gapers Block had a sneak peak of the restaurant, which is still under construction. The two-story, 24,000 square foot space is impressive; the restaurant will house a high-end liquor room, cigar humidor, luxury bar and lounge, and seven private rooms.
Welcome to the meat eater's paradise; 15 grilled meats will be served table side by gaucho-clad servers. An elaborate salad bar will offer over forty items. We sampled TdB's signature cocktail, the Caipirinha, which was deliciously shaken with Brazilian Cachaca, a sugar cane rum.
How will this spot compete with Chicago's established Brazilian steakhouses? Three words: Aerial Wine Artist. Texas de Brazil plans to unveil a two-story, glass wine room that will hold over 700 bottles of wine. A pulley system, installed by Chicago Flyhouse, will allow the aerial artist to "gracefully retrieve bottles, Cirque du Soleil style, as diners watch through the glass doors."
Dinner: $47.99, Lunch: $27.99.
