According to a sign on the door, Rodizio Grill will open in Milwaukee at 777 N. Water St. – the former Sabor space – on Thursday, Dec. 6. The chain of Brazilian steakhouses features 11 other restaurants, but this is the first Wisconsin-based location.

The Brazilian steakhouse will offer a variety of rotisserie grilled meats, a gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian appetizers, made-to-order lime-aid and more. The abacaxi, a fresh glazed-and-grilled pineapple, is one of the restaurant's most popular sides.

The chain was founded by Ivan Utrera, who brought family recipes from Brazil, and everything on the menu is homemade.
