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".

Great service and food!!

Amazingly friendly service and the meats are made to perfection. Go before 4pm and pay a lower price. I don't believe that the small difference in the buffet worth the price increase after 4pm.

Extensive Salad bar to start and then bring on the meats! Chicken, sausage and all cuts of steak. Eat as much as you like. Lovely vibrant atmosphere but must book in advance.

Fixed price all you can eat restaurant. Appetizers were quite good, but the star is the meat. Lots of choices, perfectly done, with friendly servers. Perfect for those with a big appetite who have time to enjoy a lengthy meal. Not as good for those who might prefer smaller portions or a less meat-focused meal.

If you like been called a Carnivore, you then must try this restaurant. They have a large variety of grills. I never been disappointed by their beef options but that is not the case with lamb, which could be unavailable or doesn't taste the way I expect. The staff are pleasant and helpful, they don't stop serving you unless you... More

Both the meats and the buffet are spectacular. Hint for bet buy: Weekend brunches are a bit cheaper and less crowded. Great for pre-theater, tho. I've been to both the midtown and the Tribeca locations, and both were equally great. Be sure to try the cheese bread!

Meat doesn't have a real good flavour, salad table is good and drinks are good. If you have been in a real brazilian restaurant you will be dissappointed with churrascaria plataforma.

Always an amazing experience when you taste the best cuts of Beef in a different way than what you are used to.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
