It's been more than two years since the Chicago post of Texas de Brazil closed, evicted to make room for Eataly. But fans of the Brazilian steakhouse who don't want to drive to Schaumburg have good news. The chain announced that they'll finally open their new restaurant on Wednesday at 210 E. Illinois St.

Announcing our Grand Opening of the much anticipated Chicago location! We are officially opening Wednesday, August 26,...

The new space is about 1/3 the size of the old restaurant on Ohio Street. They'll initially be only open for dinner, charging $46.99 for adults and $24.99 for the salad area only. They'll add lunch down the road. The new location at the Optima Chicago Center was supposed to open in fall 2014, but there were unforeseen delays. So find those elastic pants, folks, here's to the return of an all-you-can-eat option.
