Américas in The Woodlands will soon be converted into a new Churrascos location. Located at 21 Waterway Ave., this will be the sixth outpost in the Houston area.

"Guests familiar with Américas will recognize some of their favorites on the Churrascos menu," a spokesperson for the Cordúa Restaurant Group says. 

The restaurant's popular ceviches, churrasco, empanadas and plantains will remain on the menu. New dishes will include pressed Cuban sandwiches, smoked spareribs with tamarind guajillo and pork albondigas, which are essentially Latin-inspired meatballs.

"Churrascos is our most popular restaurant concept, and we feel that our unique Latin American menu and exciting dining experience will be a perfect fit for the Woodlands community," Juan Deshon, CEO for Cordúa, said in a prepared statement. "We wanted to focus on Churrascos as our expansion brand with the Woodlands as our sixth Churrascos overall and fourth opening since 2011."

Michael Cordúa and his son, David, have worked alongside each other at the family-owned restaurant group for several years now. David is now the executive chef at the company. 

The latest Churrascos will debut sometime later this month. "We are very excited to be bringing our sophisticated casual culinary experience to the Woodlands," he said.
