New Optima Chicago Center Location in Streeterville Marks Brazilian Steakhouse’s 39th Restaurant
Award-winning churrascaria, Texas de Brazil (http://www.texasdebrazil.com), opens today at the Optima Chicago Center. The new 7,000 sq. foot restaurant accommodates 220 guests and features a chef’s table, an open-view grill in the dining area, a signature wine wall and a bar/lounge area. Located in Streeterville, the new Chicago location is the company’s 39th restaurant and second location in Illinois joining Schaumburg.
“The Optima Chicago Center location is just steps away from Michigan Avenue, offering the perfect combination of upscale shopping, dining and attractions,” said Salim Asrawi, Chief Operating Officer, Texas de Brazil. “We’ve had great success with our Schaumburg restaurant and we’re thrilled to bring our unique Brazilian-American churrascaria dining experience to Chicago residents and visitors.”
The restaurant’s menu combines the cuisine of Southern Brazil with the generous spirit of Texas, for an unparalleled experience in fine dining. At each table, Gauchos will carve an array of grilled beef, lamb, pork, chicken and sausage, as directed by the guest’s red and green disks that indicate when to bring more meat or when a break is needed. The steakhouse also offers an elaborate salad area, beautifully decorated by large tropical flowers and featuring 50 fresh gourmet items, such as imported cheeses, charcuterie, Brazilian black beans, roasted vegetables and creamy lobster bisque. Texas de Brazil also offers an extensive award-winning wine list, rich in South American varietals, to further enhance the dining experience.
