4th Street Live adding Brazilian steakhouse
A Brazilian steakhouse called Brazeiros is set to open at 4th Street Live in February, according to a news release and 4th Street Live general manager Jim Layson.
Brazeiros currently has one other location in Knoxville, Tenn., according to its website.
The steakhouse will occupy about 6,000 square feet in the former Quattro space between Maker's Mark Lounge and Meidinger Tower and employ about 85 people, according to the release.
Here's how the steakhouse is described in the news release:
Brazeiros' menu will feature twelve different cuts of beef, lamb, pork, chicken and sausage, all roasted over an open fire by Gauchos chefs and then carved tableside. Each guest can control the pace of his or her meal with a two-sided card; the green side signals the chef to bring skewers of sizzling meats to carve tableside, while the red side indicates the customer is taking a break or finished. If the guest turns the card back to the green side, the chef will re-appear to serve more. The menu also includes a bountiful salad bar featuring over 30 items from gourmet salads, fresh cut vegetables to exotic cheeses and cured meats. It also features traditional Brazilian side dishes such as caramelized bananas, crispy polenta, garlic mashed potatoes and fresh-baked cheese bread. Brazeiros will also feature an extensive wine list, exotic cocktails, including the Brazilian caipirinha, and a variety of delicious desserts and coffees.
4th Street Live, the city-subsidized entertainment district, has several vacant spaces after a string of restaurant and bar closures, but general manager Layson said Thursday "we are very close on signing additional tenants that will round out the street."
