Steakhouse | Southport, Connecticut

This was our 2nd time at Blackstone's Grille in Southport, CT. While it is expensive, the food is very good. I ordered the lettuce wedge salad to start, and it is excellent - could be a meal by itself. The porterhouse for 3 was cooked perfectly. The waiter overheard us talking about our friend's birthday, which is why we were at the restaurant, and without requesting it, a birthday dessert was brought to our friend at the end of the meal. A great place for a special occasion. More

Steakhouse | Hartford / West Hartford, Connecticut

Texas de Brazil is no ordinary steakhouse. It’s a dining experience like no other.

Here, traditions of Brazilian cuisine blend with generous Texas hospitality to create a lively atmosphere in an upscale setting. Your meal begins with a visit to our extravagant salad area – a feast for your eyes as well as your palate. Indulge in a wide array of seasonal roasted vegetables, fresh artisan breads, charcuterie, imported cheeses and other specialties.

Next, an endless parade of gauchos visit your table with skewers of freshly grilled meats carved tableside. Choose from perfectly seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, cooked over a wood charcoal fire the way cowboys of Southern Brazil have prepared it for generations. It’s all served with authentic side dishes and to further complement your meal, select from our award-winning collection of wines or traditional Brazilian bar creations.
