Rodizio Grill, the first authentic Brazilian Steakhouse or Churrascaria in the United States, was established in 1995 by Ivan Utrera. Born in São Paulo, this Brazilian native has created an award-winning restaurant featured in national media, including USA Today, The Washington Post, CBS and NBC News.
Gauchos would gather together and start a wood burning fire, once the fire turned into golden embers, large portions of prime meat were skewered and slowly cooked to perfection. Using conventional knives, which they wore on their belts, they sliced thin and succulent pieces of meat in succession onto each person's plate. The term "churrasco" is a Portuguese term referring to a thin cut of steak, which is true to our service.
Working alongside his mother, Carmen, a former culinary teacher in Brazil, Ivan gathered cherished family recipes while also developing his own. Today, these are the creations for which Rodizio Grill has become known. From mouthwatering rotisserie-grilled meats and unique salads, to exquisite homemade desserts Rodizio Grill stays true to authentic Brazilian cuisine.
