THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Texas de Brazil Restaurant Review

: Family-owned Texas de Brazil’s NYC outpost has a richly decorated second-floor presence. A cut above other all-you-can-eat churrascarias, the restaurant’s prix-fixe menu has 16 carved-at-your-table meats and a gourmet salad bar that adds many South American touches like provoleta (grilled provolone), feijoada (a Brazilian bean and meat dish), and the addictive pan de queso rolls (cheese bread). Brazilian picanha, the top sirloin cap and the house specialty, can be served to your temperature preference with or without salt, as can the other meats. At your table, flip your coin to green when you’re set to indulge and over to red to call it quits. Many desserts, Brazilian cocktails, and international wines and cordials are available. For those not wanting the meat portion of the dinner, the salad bar (including hot selections of lobster bisque and sautéed mushrooms) is offered as an entrée.
