Rodizio Grill Is Opening Its First Location in Lincoln, Nebraska

LINCOLN, NE--(Marketwired - Aug 14, 2013) -  Rodizio Grill, America's First Brazilian Steakhouse, is set to open its first location in Nebraska on August 20, 2013. This popular Brazilian destination restaurant promises guests authentic Brazilian cuisine along with endless perfectly seasoned grilled meats carved tableside by Brazilian Gauchos.

"We could not be more thrilled to be bringing the flavors of Brazil to the community in Lincoln," stated David Knighton, Rodizio Grill's VP of Development. "We are confident this fun and festive concept will resonate with the community."

Rodizio Grill is America's First Brazilian Steakhouse, originating in Colorado in 1995. Founder Ivan Utrera brought this popular Brazilian concept, along with cherished family recipes, from his hometown of São Paulo, Brazil. Today, Rodizio Grill is a beloved and bustling restaurant that has won many prestigious Best of State awards in the Mountain West where it has prominently operated for the past 17 years.

Rodizio Grill's menu features three-foot meat skewers, perfectly seasoned and carved tableside by Brazilian Gauchos. Unlimited appetizers, over 30 gourmet salads and a wide variety of homemade desserts make for an unforgettable dining experience. Guests can indulge in Brazilian favorites like Pao de Queijo (Cheese Bread), Couve (Sautéed Collard Greens and Bacon), Picanha (Top Sirloin) and Pudim de Leite, a delicious creamy Brazilian Caramel Flan, just to name a few. Everything at Rodizio Grill is made fresh every day, adding to the authenticity of the establishment.

Rodizio Grill will be locally owned by a group of business entrepreneurs who love fine dining and wanted to bring something special to the Haymarket. It will be operated by Phillip Bekker, an experienced restaurant General Manager who has years of hospitality management experience.

"Rodizio Grill's concept is unique to the Lincoln market and we are really excited to be bringing Lincoln's first Brazilian Steakhouse," stated Bekker. "No other concept gives guests so much control. With just the turn of a cue, guests can enjoy endless rotisserie grilled meats. This is truly an authentic Brazilian experience."

Rodizio Grill Lincoln will be located on 737 P Street in the Haymarket District. The public is welcomed at a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce on August 29, 2013 at 4 p.m. For more information, guests can visit
