Texas de Brazil’s sixteen domestic locations are the perfect place to celebrate Brazil’s biggest holiday: Carnival. Guests are invited to experience Brazil right here in the United States with the traditional cuts of seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage for which Texas de Brazil is famous—all carved tableside in true Brazilian Churrascaria fashion—along with classic Brazilian Caipirinhas and other cocktails. Diners can complete their Brazilian Steakhouse experience with a sumptuous 50-60 item salad bar, a decadent dessert, after dinner drink, steaming espresso or hand-rolled cigar.
The Carnival of Brazil is an annual festival held forty-six days before Easter, culminating on Fat Tuesday. The country stops completely for almost a week and festivities are intense, both day and night. There are carnival celebrations in virtually every corner of Brazil, the best-known ones taking place in Recife together with the neighboring Olinda (in the North of Brazil) and Salvador, with the biggest and most famous carnival being the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro.
For guests who want to celebrate both at Texas de Brazil and at home, Culinary Director Evandro Caregnato presents a recipe for an authentic Brazilian meal of black beans and rice served with grilled meat and topped with tangy vinaigrette of tomatoes and onion; to finish, a chilled dessert made with fresh and ripe papaya. Complete recipe is below. Photos available upon request.
