Official grand opening of popular Brazilian steakhouse set for Thursday
The Rio Games may be over, but Orange County diners can still enjoy the authentic tastes of Brazil at a new restaurant that recently opened its doors in Irvine.
Texas de Brazil Churrascaria, one of the nation’s leading Brazilian steakhouses, is celebrating its official grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Tustin Chamber of Commerce, including special certificate presentations by four local organizations. The event, scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 29, will begin at 6:15 p.m. at 13722 Jamboree Rd. in Irvine’s dining and entertainment destination center, The Market Place.
Appetizers and drinks will be passed during the event, and those who choose to stay for a full dinner will enjoy a special grand opening discount.
Texas de Brazil boasts an endless array of flame-grilled beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, slow-roasted and continuously carved tableside by gauchos, as individually directed by each guest. The menu also features an elaborate salad area, beautifully decorated by large tropical flowers and featuring 50 fresh gourmet items, such as imported cheeses, charcuterie, Feijoada, roasted vegetables and creamy lobster bisque. To further enhance the dining experience, an extensive award-winning wine list, refreshing Brazilian cocktails and a-la-carte dessert selections are offered.
“We’re extremely pleased with the reception we’ve received here in Irvine, from local residents and visitors alike,” said General Manager Leonardo Giannotti. “Our guests really love the unique experience of dining at Texas de Brazil, with our warm Texas hospitality, abundant gourmet salad area and delicious meats grilled and served churrasco-style by our friendly gauchos.”
