Rodizio Grill® Now Open in Sarasota
This location marks the brand’s third location in Florida
Rodizio Grill - Sarasota is owned by three seasoned restaurateurs, local to Sarasota, who bring more than 48 years of combined restaurant experience. Charlie Haney, Barry Berkowitz and Brian Marshall are excited to not only support their community but create more than 50 local jobs. “Rodizio Grill offers such a unique dining experience and I am beyond excited to bring it to our own backyard,” said Haney. “It will become a place where family and friends can create memories and celebrate milestones, and a unique venue for corporate and social gatherings.”
For over 20 years, the brand has been known for its playful Brazilian spirit, authentic menu offerings and family-friendly atmosphere. The unique concept features rotisserie grilled meat, expertly seasoned and carved tableside by traditionally dressed Gauchos. While the meats are the main attraction, they are complemented with an award-winning gourmet salad bar, marked by original salads, fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables, and authentic hot side dishes. Rodizio Grill also features a selection of Brazilian wine, beer, signature cocktails, fresh-pressed juices and homemade desserts.
“I am thrilled for the opening of our second location in Southwest Florida; our first location in the region, located at Coconut Point Mall in Estero, opened last spring, and has been extremely successful and well-received by the community – from both residents and tourists alike,” said Ivan Utrera, Founder of Rodizio Grill. “Similar to the Estero area, Sarasota is a thriving market and growing community; I am thrilled to bring our distinctive culture and authentic Brazilian experience to the Sarasota community.”
Rodizio Grill - Sarasota is located off I-75 at 5911 Fruitville Road. The 7,000 square foot dining space offers several semi-private spaces to accommodate both small and large group dining.
