So I'm the type of girl who researches EVERYTHING and I normally prefer hole in the wall joints. I've also been to some pretty amazing places and have been lucky enough to travel to Bora Bora. (not saying this to brag, but I want to convey a strong point). I live in NJ and randomly decided to have a date... More

Celebrated my birthday with friends and had a great time. Come with an appetite, because you can eat as much as you want. The salad bar is one of the most varied I have seen and all is very good. But don't fill up on the salad bar, the meat is the star of the show. If you are a... More

Can't fault the service of this restaurant and when we asked to be moved to a quieter table there was no fuss. Good selection of meats and cooked how we asked, they were also very generous with it, compared to some Rodizio restaurants we have been in where they try and mix in cheaper cuts. It is really expensive but... More

A $170 bill for a 2 course meal and no alcoholic drinks or deserts / coffee ordered. The surroundings, service and meal was very pleasant, but this just seems very expensive for an experience that lasted just over and hour and a quarter. The amount of the bill / check would have felt justified if desert / coffee was included... More

I absolutely LOVE this place. The "salad" bar stocked with sushi, veggies, cheese, quinoa, shrimps, and yes salad! is great! Before the meat parade starts you can have appetizers on top of your salad, that consist of fried yuca, rice, beans, brazilian dough cakes w/a hint of cheese, which are all, you guessed it. Delicious! ALL of the meat is... More

Wow...we all loved this place and was such a fun experience and something a bit different. Make sure you go hungry as you can eat and eat. There is such a huge variety of meats and all cooked so well as well as unlimited sides and an excellent buffet. It is pricey but great for a special occasion and worth... More

This is a huge restaurant, lively and boisterous. The principle is that you eat as much meat as you want to. Various kinds of meat are constantly on offer and you can go to a salad bar and have as much as you wish there too. Service is courteous and efficient. The quality of the non-meat sector high. The meat... More

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.
