This was the best restaurant experience I've had in years. The food is phenomenal. I knew not to fill up on the salad bar, but wow was that hard to hold back. There were so many great choices. My dinner companion said the scalloped potatoes were the best he'd ever had. I tried a little bit of everything, the sushi... More

Amazing Brazilian restaurant, a carnivore's paradise, with excellent grilled meet, as much as you can eat. The Buffet is also fantastic, with salads, sushi, etc. Place is beautiful, but very noisy .. and crowded.

Went because of a blizzard and it was close to our hotel. I am so happy we did. Don't miss this place because the food, service and atmosphere are everything that you would want in a restaurant. The prime rib was the best I've ever had and I've eaten a lot of beef. The price is a bit steep but... More

I love Brazilian cuisine and we've done the rounds over the years but Platform always tops them all. spacious, modern design doesn't overshadow the quality of the meats offered. Only draw back the last time I went, was tat they all came out at the same time, so I ended up with a pile of meat on my plate and... More

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".

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.
