Churrascaria Plataforma has become our family Thanksgiving tradition for years - this year we had 14 people. As usual, the food selection and quality was outstanding. The staff was mostly even more attentive than usual. Two minor issues: the buffet table lacked any labels (those with allergies had to find and ask a restaurant associate to confirm the items), and... More

From start to finish, this restaurant was great. Each piece of meat was cooked exceptionally. The servers were friendly, funny, and patient. The sides that you choose were normal Brazilian side dish fare, and was tasty. The salad bar before you ate had a lot of options (I chose to avoid it because I did not want to hinder my... More

We've eaten at many churrascaria restaurants, including Fogo de Chão, Fire of Brazil and Texas de Brazil, and this restaurant is definitely one of the best! Be sure to come hungry, as the Passadores will keep coming by with different cuts of meat until you go "red" (they'll explain). Oh, and the salad bar is very delicious, but don't over... More

We have been there two years ago and it was as good now as it was then. Still the best Brazilian Steakhouse bar none, I been to several others not even close. The only issue with this place is you always eat to much!

Stopped by recently for a late lunch. I was not disappointed. Wonderful friendly staff who were attentive throughout. I absolutely loved the app buffet and had to pace myself to save room for the meat offerings. Quite expensive but expected. Two people...two alcoholic drinks a piece..two desserts..and rodizzio main course. with tip $200. at 3:00pm seating.

We were staying at the Hotel which us attached to this restaurant (The Belvedere) and called in to see what it was like. Service was amazing and we were sat very quickly with a nice welcome. We were offered Brazilian cocktails - very good! I opted just to have the salad bar which was absolutely amazing. My husband had the... 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.
