Description: Churrascaria Plataforma is a Rodizio style restaurant. Rodizio is a method of serving meat that originated in the south of Brazil in the early 1800's. The concept is to serve a wide variety of different cuts of beef - sirloin, baby beef, top round, skirt steak, short ribs, brisket, rib eye; pork - ham, pork ribs, sausage, pork loin, suckling pig; chicken - chicken legs, chicken hearts; turkey - wrapped in bacon; lamb, fish, etc. in succession, to each diner individually right at their table. A meal typically begins with a trip to the gourmet salad bar, which features a variety of vegetables and composed salads in addition to four hot dishes. We also serve a selection of side dishes at your table. The main course, the highlight of the meal, will start when you flip your coaster-sized "chip" from the red side to the green side, signaling the meat cutters you're ready to be served. Winner of Three Consecutive NYC Health Dept "Golden Apple Award".

Celebrated 50th birthday here with a Dozen friends. Everything about the place was amazing. Atmosphere, food, service. We were a large group and felt like the only people in the restaurant with the terrific attention that we received. The buffet had something for everyone and so many great choices. Could have feasted on that alone. The variety of meats and... More

We've eaten at Braziian Steakhouses before, including Fogo De Chao. While the salad bar good, the service was fair (3/4 of the way through our meal they told us about two other types of meat that nobody had offerred us yet). More importantly, the meat was not nearly as good as other Brazilian steakhouses. Most cuts were medium (or more... More

Love this place! More meat than one can possibly consume. Only thing that kept it from five stars on the last visit was the staff's pushing of the flank steak and sirloin selections, while keeping other quality options at bay. It was obvious which meats they wanted us to eat. The salad bar alone is worth a meal, and one... More

Not for the faint hearted! You need to miss breakfast and lunch to really make the most of this all you can eat Brazilian meat restaurant. At $65 per head, it's not cheap but the quality of the different meats was really good and there was a nice selection of salads.

Don't see this kind of brazilian steakhouse very often in US. We went for all-you-can-eat meat dinner. It was delicious. All kinds of meat. Very authentic and loved it! Salad bar was very good too. It is a little bit expensive. $60+ before drinks and tips. But it definitely is worth to visit.

I have been to this place three times. Prices were reasonable. I love the whole idea of them coming around and u get to try different cuts of meat. Food was delicious and very juicy. Also had the buffet before they come around with the meat. It was pretty good. I don't recommend eating too much of it because then... More

Wanted to write this review while it was fresh on my mind.
