I had been to his place the last time I was in NYC, and it was as I remembered. Nice meats and an inviting salat and fish/sushi bar. Large wine selection and good recommendation from the head waiter. Good service generally. Only drawback - the chair seats are made of cheap plastic, and even though my wife and I are... More

The restaurant is lovely inside with live music on a Saturday evening when we visited. The starter buffet alone is great; sushi, smoked salmon, cheese, lots of fresh salads. I also loved the cheesy bread rolls they deliver to the table. The main course is amazing - service is very prompt once you flip your green card over and the... More

If you told someone this was an all you can eat buffet sort of place then I think you'd be doing it a serious disservice... at least by UK standards. The buffet section was excellent, with a ridiculous selection that would be good enough to fill most people a couple of times over before they ran out of things to... More

This isn't an inexpensive restaurant but it supports the old truth that says you get what you pay for. The service is fantastic- instantaneous and friendly, always good at making you feel special and valued. The atmosphere is perfect- it's a large restaurant but never feels overwhelmed and noisy. And the food? If you like steaks and meats, you probably... More

Brazilian BBQ restaurant up a notch from the ones I've frequented in the UK. Its a relaxed environment with a great starters buffet. I could've eaten from that all night but I needed to save room for the meat. All the meat was excellently cooked with the sirloin steak being our family favourite. It is not cheap for adults but...

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".

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
