Different restaurant, but same concept: A Rodizio Grill (http://www.rodiziogrill.com/milwaukee-located-downtown) opened in the former Sabor Brazilian Churrascaria space downtown on Dec. 6, the first Wisconsin restaurant for the Utah-based chain.
The franchisee opening the Milwaukee restaurant is Oshkosh-based Supple Restaurant Group.
Rodizio Grill operates in the same format as Sabor, with waitstaff dressed as gauchos wielding skewers of grilled meats that are served tableside.
One price -- $31.99 at dinner-- includes unlimited appetizers, salads and grilled meats. The salad-bar-only option is $18.99 at dinner.
“Rodizio Grill is an incredible addition to our group,” Supple Chief Executive Officer Jay Supple said in a written statement. “We were looking for a fun, growing concept that we could bring to the community of Milwaukee. Rodizio Grill provided that opportunity and we could not be more excited to enter this new venture.”
Supple is a family-operated business founded in the 1960s. The group also owns Fratellos in Appleton and Oshkosh, Fox River Brewing in Appleton, a Melting Pot in Appleton, Golden Corral in Oshkosh and Plover, and Red & White wine shop in Appleton, as well as hotel franchises.
Rodizio Grill was founded in 1995 in Colorado by Brazilian native Ivan Utrera.
