OK, so we don’t normally provide this space to promote a restaurant special, but this just struck us as unusual enough to mention, particularly if you are looking for something completely different for Easter dinner. Think Churrascaria-style meats.
Oh, sure, most carnivorous foodies have tried at least one of these places. It’s just simply that you don’t think of it for Easter. Easter is marshmellow Peeps, chocolate bunnies, and ham on the table.
Or not. Try this on for Easter dinner:
Texas de Brazil will offer unlimited portions of lamb and other gourmet meats for Easter brunch, cooked in the traditional Brazilian Churrascaria style, sliced and served tableside. Similar to the American rotisserie style, Churrascaria-style meat is slow roasted on skewers over an open flame. The system of cooking allows guests to choose how they’d like their lamb prepared (rare vs. well).
Lamb selections are served with mint jelly and include:
Leg of Lamb: The bone-in Australian leg of lamb, marinated overnight with a blend of seven green herbs, garlic, red wine and olive oil. The leg of the lamb is cooked to medium-rare, with a crisp, golden crust and is carved table side by gaucho chefs.
Rack of Lamb: 14/16 Australian rack of lamb, seasoned with Brazilian rock salt and fresh mint just minutes before going into the charcoal fire.
Other meat options include, but are not limited to, Brazilian sausage, chicken breast wrapped in bacon, and picanha steak, the house specialty.
The Easter brunch menu will also feature fresh mimosas and a gourmet salad area containing up to 75 different options. Easter salad items include asparagus with strawberry sauce, shrimp ceviche, Brazilian hearts of palm, grilled Portobello mushrooms, as well as a variety of imported cheeses and artisan breads.
Texas de Brazil has 14 locations nationwide and one in Aruba, and has announced plans to open in Las Vegas, NV and Baton Rouge, LA.
