Brazilian steakhouse chain Texas de Brazil is entering the Nashville market, taking over a large space just off West End Avenue that previously housed Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante. Located in the ground floor of the Park View Towers at 210 25th Avenue North next to Kobe Steaks, renovations are currently underway on the approximately 7,000 square foot space. Sardinia, an offshoot of the original Miami location, struggled mightily in that location, closing in January after being open for less than a year.
Texas de Brazil, which has had a presence in Memphis for a number of years, is known for their all-you-can-eat meats, brought around to guests on large skewers. A concept of this type will probably be a better fit for the area, which is heavily populated by chain restaurants.
