D.C.'s never been lacking for options for meat eaters. But here's one more gigantic one to add to the mix: Texas de Brazil has opened a nearly 9,000 square foot restaurant in the old Buddha Bar space in Mount Vernon Triangle.
This location has room for up to 280 guests, plus a patio. There's a chef's table, a private dining room, a wine wall and a bar and lounge.
This is an outsized Brazilian steakhouse with Texan influences: meats like grilled beef, lamb, pork, sausage and chicken are available (like Fogo de Chao, they're on skewers and carved tableside). There's also a big salad bar. It's a prix fixe situation with $46.99 for the traditional experience, and $24.99 for salad bar only. Kids' prices are cheaper.
Lunch service will eventually follow; right now they're open for dinner.
