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 party for lunch

Had a great party for our sons graduation. Went for lunch with a party of 9. The Maitre'd was outstanding. The food was superb. We were quite surprised that even though it was lunch, the selection of meats were extensive. One of us is a vegetarian and they grilled up a nice piece of fish. This... read more

We went here to celebrate a birthday and go to a NY Rangers game. It was my second visit to this restaurant. We made reservations online and were promptly seated on arrival. Make sure you go there hungry so that you can try everything. The meat just keeps coming and coming. Its cooked to perfection and the variety is endless.... More

It was a new experience having never been to a brazillian all you can eat steakhouse, but the staff were very friendly and helpful. The meat was good quality and the different spices were a great experience. Highly recommend a visit

Great churrascaria in NYC. Been to Plataforma in Rio years ago, decided to come here for lunch. Very accessible and easy to find, right in the theatre district. Great food including a full salad bar and hot dish buffet (love the turkey meatballs in blue cheese sauce). Meats were delicious including picanha, alcatra, turkey wrapped in bacon, chicken leg, sausage,... More

Don't get me wrong, the food and service are almost faultless but we weren't made aware of the set price before we started eating and the bill came a little as a shock - particularly as we had only popped in for an quick, early meal prior to a trip to the theatre. I would recommend this place if you... More

My husband and I went and had a wonderful time.

The beef and other meats served at your table were tender and tasty. Lunch is $39.95 for the buffet table of various salads and hot items. You can also order up to 10 side dishes at your table, we enjoyed the fried polenta. Being seniors we were only charge $32.95 for the complete meal. Highly recommended.

We ate lunch here our second day. We chose lunch ($39) over dinner ($62) because it is essentially the same meal but less expensive. The salad bar is fantastic and the roasted meats are amazing. You choose which type from the roving gentleman who carve it off their skewers for you. Chicken, sausage, filet mignon, sirloin, and on and on.... More

It was the first time for me here, and I am still in shock after that! This place is awesome, not only for the good meat that they serve but for all that comes with it!

Over the past twenty years, I've probably averaged twice a year visit to CP. It's still very, very good for what it projects itself to be.

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.
