Tyler restaurant-goers will have a new steakhouse to enjoy. Texas de Brazil will be expanding into South Tyler in the spring of 2017.
"As our presence continues to expand throughout the nation and into other countries, we feel Tyler, a city in our flagship state, which is experiencing economic expansion, is an ideal location," said Hannah Thompson, Texas de Brazil director of marketing and public relations.
The Brazilian steakhouse offers a unique concept that differs from the traditional steakhouse dining experience. Guests are able to sample each cut of meat as frequently as they’d like and try all the different items on the salad area.
At Texas de Brazil, diners can eat as fast or as slow as they prefer. Guests can eat their selections from the salad area or flip their card to green to start receiving their meats selections.
"If you dine at a traditional steakhouse, you are tied to that one particular dish you ordered," Ms. Thompson said. "If you don’t like it, or you grow bored with it half way through, you can’t ask for a different type of meat like you can at Texas de Brazil."
Diners at Texas de Brazil have the choice of beef, lamb, pork, chicken and sausage that have been seasoned, cooked over an open flame and carved tableside by the restaurant’s authentically costumed gauchos.
"The cuisine combines the tastes of Southern Brazil with the generous sprit of Texas," Ms. Thompson said.
The restaurant features a fresh, gourmet salad area containing more than 50 items. Guests can conclude their dining experience with one of the many dessert selections or relax with an after-dinner drink.
"At Texas de Brazil, we don’t have a menu, in the traditional sense," Ms. Thompson said. "We feature a continuous dining experience, where guests pays a fixed-price of $44.99. This allows them to experience every single cut of meat and all the items at the salad area."
Diners can expect to see a large, extravagant tropical floral arrangement atop the salad area. The restaurant's decor features rustic chandeliers, over-sized mirrors and deep red walls.
"We have not announced our general manager for the Tyler location," Ms. Thompson said. "We are very excited to become a part of your wonderful community."
Texas De Brazil will be located at the corner of Dueling Oaks Drive and Old Jacksonville Highway.
