By and large, the best meal out I've had in a long time...and, I expect for a long time to come too. We love Brazilian Churrascarias and were so excited to find out that this restaurant shared our hotel lobby. Starting with an extensive salad bar (complete with fish and sushi) through the meat courses, and ending with a full... More

If you have not experienced a Brazilian restaurant before and you are into some great grilled meat, do yourself a favor and try one. Try Churrascaria Plataforma. I have eaten here three times now on occasions from a 'simple' two-person dinner to a party of 30. Each time was a good experience filled with tons of great food. Their salad... More

Gourmet Salad is really that. Too fancy to decipher what was in them. Restaurant should have name cards for each plate/platter at Gourmet island. Otherwise meats were all great. Waiter carrying the meats were very friendly and insistent. Matri'd was nice and accommodating. Too bad most of us do not have the huge size appetite needed to suffice the price.... More

We had been to a Churrascaria restaurant in Rio and was hoping this one would live up to it and were very pleased to find it was just as good . The restaurant is on the pricey side so more suitable for a special meal than everyday dining but worth the money. There is a huge variety of starters at... More

What a fun place. First of all there is a great salad bar with meats, cheeses, salad, shrimp and all sorts of side salads. The house made speciality drink is a must have. They come around with every kind of meat on a skewer from sausages to chicken, lamb to pork and every variety of steak there is. So there... More

We went to Platforma for an occasion and had a wonderful time! The salad bar was well stocked and the food was fresh. As soon as we sat down and turned over our "discs" there were 6 types of meat on our plates and we had to turn it to red just to catch up. The food was tasty, the... More

We had a peasant evening. Great buffet with salads, vegetables, sushi, ... Lots of variation for beef and meat served typically Like in Brazil or Argentina. Try the strawberry caipirinha ! Only the price is a bit over the top!

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.
