Coming Soon Signage Posted for Texas de Brazil Steakhouse on Mass Ave


This is the former Buddha Bar space on Mass Ave.  Texas de Brazil’s website says:

“Texas de Brazil is carving a new experience in fine dining. The restaurant is an authentic Brazilian-American “Churrascaria” or steakhouse that combines the cuisines of Southern Brazil with the generous spirit of Texas.

Treat yourself to our 50-60 item seasonal salad area including appetizers, gourmet vegetables, soups, and salads. Turn your place card to green and prepare to be swarmed by a troop of carvers generously serving various cuts of seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, all accompanied by traditional side items and house-baked Brazilian cheese bread. As you dine endlessly on Brazilian fare, let one of our in-house wine connoisseurs select the perfect pairing from our extensive, award-winning wine lists, or sip on a freshly-made signature cocktail-the Caipirinha. Complete your dining experience with one of our many decadent dessert selections, and then relax with an after-dinner drink, steaming espresso or a hand-rolled cigar and enjoy the ambiance and service perfection that is uniquely Texas de Brazil.”

You can see their menus here.

  • Has anyone been to both Fogo and Texas de Brazil? Which one is better?

  • The Mediocre Mile gets more so….

  • I’ve never been to one of these. Is it on par or more of a poor man’s Fogo de Chao?

  • these comments are so snobby sounding – i love this place, but then again, i also like waffle house from time to time, too… for most people in this country, texas de brazil is an expensive, fun treat… let’s bring down the snob factor a few notches.

    • Just because millions of people view it as an expensive treat doesn’t mean it’s good, and it’s not snobby to point out that the food sucks. See also, Cheesecake Factory.

      • It’s also not particularly cheap by any standard. Dinner is $42.99/person, according to the Post, and that doesn’t include drinks, desserts, taxes or tip.

      • Sorry, are you saying Cheesecake Factory is expensive??

        • Obviously not. CCF falls under the heading of “some people view it an an expensive treat, the food sucks, and it isn’t snobby to say the food sucks.” But, you knew that.

    • I don’t think people are exactly being snobby about this place – to me people are snobby about Waffle House when they say you are paying 5 bucks for shitty pancakes and you should instead pay 10 bucks for good pancakes. I agree with that statement, but I concede I am being a snob when I make it. In the case of Fogo (I’ve never been to Texas de) I think the argument is that you are paying enough money to eat a very good meal, but instead of eating a very good meal you are paying for a gimmick and mediocre food. If you want a lot of steak go to a good steakhouse, pay the same 45 dollars and you will not leave hungry and you will have a much better meal. You just won’t get it bought to you a little at a time on swords. Not much of a loss in my opinion.

  • I think the meats at Texas de Brazil have more flavor and more varied than Fogo, but the full Fogo salad bar perhaps edges Texas. I don’t get the snobby responses either. I find the whole Brazilian steak house thing fun for large groups and good way to pig out, when you just want to do that. This place should do well with conventioneers and visitors. The foodies and hipsters can have their two hour waits at Rose’s Luxry for some popcorn soup.

    How many all you can eat Argentine style steak houses does one quadrant of one city need? One is kind of a neat concept, two or three, plus all the other steakhouses…

    • Fogo and Texas are brazilian-style stakehouses, A.K.A., churrascarias. The Argentine-style stakehouses (called parrillas, or asados) are a bit different – not all you can eat, no giant spits, etc. The latter includes Del Campo (to some extent) and Rural Society,

  • I work in the building – this has been “coming soon” for months with no apparent progress on the inside.
