Texas de Brazil Restaurant Review: Southern hospitality meets gaucho-inspired cuisine at Texas de Brazil, where servers don Brazilian cowboy garb as they deliver skewers of meats (filet mignon, pork loin, chicken breast, picanha, you name it) that have been grilled over an open flame. Vegetarians will find something to eat at the extensive (50-55 items) hot and cold salad and sides bar. Black beans and farofa, a classic Brazilian dish, are there, and don't forget to snag some chimichurri sauce for the meats. Brunch features conventional breakfast fare in addition to grilled meats. For dessert, papayas and cream keep the tastes of Brazil going, but there are plenty of traditional Southern desserts, such as bananas Foster pie and pecan pie (this is Memphis, after all). The extensive, globally selected wine list offers 20-plus wines by the glass and about 20 half bottles. Chile and Argentina are well represented; expect a number of Argentine Malbecs, too.
