We hinted back in early March that Texas de Brazil was rumored to be the new tenant for the former Buddha Bar location at 455 Mass. Today the Washington Business Journal confirms that Texas de Brazil has executed a lease for the space.
Texas de Brazil is a Brazilian-American “churrascaria” or steakhouse that combines the cuisines of Southern Brazil with Texan style meats. Patrons instruct servers by turning a piece of paper green side up to get meat or turn it to the red side to no longer receive meat.
Do you feel this is the best possible restaurant for the space? My gut reaction is similar to the one I had for Buddha Bar years ago… is this another concept that will neglect to make use of the 130 seat patio? Buddha Bar largely ignored the patio space and that was a shame.
