Touro - New Brazilian in Old Saybrook

DonShirer Jul 3, 2012 02:46 PM

I was driving by the old location of Fogo, the Brazilian churascaria that closed last year, and saw that it had been resurrected as Touro - Brazilian Grill and Bar, so I pulled in to check it out. Evidently the theme hasn't changed that much, since besides the usual entrees, it still features Rodizio - you pay a fixed price and waiters offer you samples of grilled and roasted meats until your stomach calls a halt. They also still have a serve-your-own salad bar.

I really liked the Fogo approach (and their salad bar) and will have to try Touro as soon as I can convince DW to go. (My fingers ran ahead of my brain and I had added "Brazilian" to the end of the preceding sentence until my mind caught up!)

1333 Boston Post Road, Old Saybrook, CT. 860-339-5731.

    whoever runs this place is also a marketing failure. who knew they were even there. I go by there several times a week and love new places. shame these businesses miss all these opportunities

      In an attempt to look them up on the net, I couldn't find them. I don't suppose anybody has a number and address? :)

          thank you! I called and nobody is picking up today. To be closed on 4th of July weekend is not a smart business move.

        Called them again, and at least this time I was greeted with an answer. Their Rodizio (sp) is priced at about 28 dollars per person.
