Brasa Churrasquería, a South American steak house, will open this June in Old Metairie, according to The Advocate.

Edgar Caro, the chef and owner of Baru Bistro & Tapas and Basin Seafood & Sports, is opening the new restaurant on Metairie Road. It will take over the location of Château du Lac, which closed in January.

Caro, a Colombian native, said the à la carte restaurant will be casual.

“What we really want to do is show a traditional South American steakhouse,” Caro told The Advocate. “Wherever you go in South America — Brazil, Argentina, Colombia where I’m from — people are passionate about beef and steak.”
