New dining experience planned for The Cube

Birmingham’s premier Brazilian restaurant is set to launch a new dining concept this summer.

The continued success of Rodizio Rico, in The Cube, has prompted the business to expand its food offering.

Plans for the reconfigured restaurant see the neighbouring Bun and Bowl restaurant making way for a new fixed-price casual dining experience, alongside the existing Brazilian churrascaria.

Work will begin soon to incorporate the deluxe burger and shrimp bar into Rodizio’s restaurant space on Level 7.

Rodizio Rico will continue to trade as normal throughout the work and the new dining experience is expected to be launched later in the summer.

Both brands are owned by entrepreneur Mike Nayla, who said: “There is such a demand for Rodizio Rico’s quality food that it makes sense to expand.

“However rather than simply add more tables to the existing restaurant, we will be investing in a fresh concept for this space, to complement the authentic Brazilian cuisine of Rodizio.”

Rodizio Rico offers diners their choice of unlimited charcoal grilled meats, carved at the table by experienced passadors. The lively atmosphere has made the canalside restaurant a popular destination for families and large groups of friends.

Director of The Cube Neil Edginton added: “The Cube has become renowned for high quality international food, served up by energetic, independent brands.

“Rodizio Rico brought the concept of churrascaria to Birmingham and customers have loved the easy-going, friendly character of the restaurant. It is one of The Cube’s best known and most popular venues so we are excited to taste the new flavours that Mike Nayla and his team have planned for the expanded Rodizio.

“This announcement comes hot on the heels of the new Marco Pierre White restaurant, Bardolino, on Level 6, and bolsters The Cube’s position as a world-class Birmingham leisure destination.”
