[EXCLUSIVE] The Passador to Bring Brazilian Steaks Back to Alpharetta

Alpharetta residents will once again have a destination for Brazilian steaks when The Passador opens next month.  Slated to open by mid-March, the new Brazilian steakhouse will open in place of Galeto Brazilian Steakhouse, which closed this past November after a little less than two years in business.  The Passador will be located at 2355 Mansell Road, adjacent to Benihana, not far from North Point Mall.  

Passador, which in Portuguese means “meat server,” offers a traditional Brazilian steakhouse experience in which passadores travel from table to table, offering select cuts of  lamb, pork, beef, sausage, and chicken, and carving them tableside for guests.  The restaurant will also feature freshly made Brazilian cheese bread, a hugely popular offering of traditional Brazilian steakhouses.  

The 8,800 square foot restaurant is being opened by partners, brothers, and native Brazilians Nelcir and Marcio Muller, who have more than forty years of collective experience working in Brazilian steakhouses—Nelcir most recently at Chama Gaucha in Buckhead, and Marcio from Chama Gaucha’s Chicago location.     

“I’ve seen the growth that’s been taking place in Alpharetta for some time and thought that I would like to be a part of it,” said Nelcir Muller, who spoke exclusively to ToNeTo Atlanta about his upcoming restaurant. “We had a lot of clientele from this area that would drive down to Buckhead for Chama Gaucha, so I knew that there was a market for a good Brazilian steakhouse.”   

Nelcir is excited to begin serving the community. “I think we have a beautiful area here with Alpharetta, Cumming and Milton,” he adds. “We want to focus on being a part of that community, and I think we can do that by serving great food, high quality meat and offering amazing service.” 

Passador will be open seven days a week offering weekday lunch and dinner and Sunday brunch from 12:30 to 3pm.  Lunch meals will be offered at $28.50, brunch and dinner at $42.50.  Unlimited trips to the expansive salad bar will be offered at $18.50 at lunch and $24.50 at dinner.  In addition, the restaurant will for the time being operate at limited capacity, following all CDC guidelines as well as those put in place by local and state officials.   

Are you excited about the return of a true Brazilian steakhouse to Alpharetta?  What is your favorite cut of meat?  What is your favorite North Point area restaurant?

I wish them luck as I really enjoy Churrascaria's but I question whether there is a market for that price and size of plate, i feel like customers tastes are changing.
I will check it out for lunch and then book the afternoon off work to sleep it off.

While this sounds great, I think all-you-can-eat and buffets will soon become a thing of the past due to COVID and people wanting to eat more healthy. I hope these guys do well, and I'm sure their food will be great, but I have no interest in spending that much to gorge myself and feel guilty later.
