Samba, steak and Stratford

Beleza Rodizio to open a new Brazilian steakhouse.

Premier Brazilian steakhouse Beleza Rodizio, renowned for its authentic rodizio-style dining, are to open at a new location in Stratford upon Avon.

The restaurant will offer a diverse menu that includes Wagyu, the legendary super-marbled, super-expensive beef from Japan that’s now sought-after in the UK.

Wagyu is the world’s most expensive beef because of the way it is reared. The cattle are fed for 600 days after weaning, more than double the time for other breeds.

Beleza meaning ‘beautiful’ in Portuguese will also be showcasing an exciting and authentic Brazilian rodizio. It’s an all-you-can-eat extravaganza and you’re in control of the flow of food. Sumptuous skewers are carved table-side by skilled passadors, and a beautiful self-serve salad bar brims with Brazilian and Argentinian dishes.

The menu’s flair is matched by Beleza’s spirit, promising a vibrancy that’s hard to resist. Pair with a traditional cocktail or south American wine to take tastes to new heights.

At the new Stratford location, situated in Bell Court, guests can expect a vibrant, inviting atmosphere, complemented by the rich flavours of Brazilian cuisine. Designed by Copper and Ash, the 4,500 square foot restaurant will have a more sumptuous, luxurious interior reflecting its location. Central to the design are pops of colour and texture seen through the fabrics and wallpapers, all inspired by the vibrancy of the Brazilian Favelas.

“We are excited to bring the essence of Brazilian hospitality and cuisine to Stratford Upon Avon,” said Nico Jamil owner of Beleza Rodizio (pictured). “We can’t wait for you to try our Waygu Experience, from our one-of-a-kind charcoal grill, with cuts such as Wagyu Alcatra, Wagyu Picanha and Wagyu Maminha.

There will also be an outdoor terrace that will seat 30 guests, ideal for those lazy days in the sun for tourists and locals alike.

Nico continues, “Our goal is to provide an unforgettable dining experience where guests can enjoy the rich culinary traditions of Brazil in a setting that is both elegant and welcoming.”

As well as the rodizio-style service that will offer various cuts of meat, including beef, lamb, chicken, and pork, all expertly seasoned and grilled to perfection, there will be a gourmet salad bar offering a selection of fresh salads, traditional Brazilian side dishes, and hot items to complement the main courses.

At Beleza Rodizio, there will be some great signature cocktails, including Brazil’s famous caipirinhas and a curated list of wines, to enhance the dining experience.

Beleza Rodizio is set to open early August. For more information, visit
