My first Brazilian Rodizio style meal and it was amazing ...the food was excellent as was the service. The maitre D or main Host has a real handle on things and he kept checking we were okay, all the waiters carrying meats were friendly and if you were waiting on a particular cut of meat they would ensure it arrived...

Typical Brazilian. The salad bar is off the chart. Fresh shrimp, crab salad, great other salads too. Take your time, try a whole bunch of samples from the salad bar. The place is gigantic! No issue with turning over tables. When you are ready, flip your card from red to green, and within about 2 to 3 nanoseconds you will... More

Fortunately we were seated next to the kitchen and got hot meat as it came out. Salad bar has an abundance of aperitif style food, and every server was kind and welcoming. Professional cuts, all types of doneness for meat. We spilled a drink at our table and the service was excellent; all hands on deck, with several waiters cleaning... More

This was our choice for after a matinee performance at the Winter Garden Theater. The Prix Fixe dinner is amazing. About 10 different types of meat cooked/grilled perfectly and served at your table,Brazilian churrascaria-style. All you can eat, so go hungry. The buffet salad bar is also excellent. The service is excellent and the large dining room is very attractive.

This was the day of the 'Blizzard' in NYC and we had no plans as such. My better half really doesn't like the the meat places but I kinda talked her round. It was a fantastic looking restaurant when we arrived, the staff were very friendly and showed us to a table, we wanted further back and they accommodated us.... More

If you love meat and are up for trying new things, this is your restaurant. Skewers make their way around of the best meats you will ever have. Shrimp is incredible, too.

great diversity of meats. However, I've talked to the staff and got more diversity (chicken hearts). Sometimes too much garlic powder and salt.

My daughter and I opted to not have the wide array of meat included in our dinner because the "salad bar" was so amazing. There are at least four hot items to choose from in addition to an expansive selection of cold salads We enjoyed the coconut curry white fish, asparagus risotto, and cheesy scalloped potatoes with bacon. The eggplant... More

If you like a lot of meat and are a large consumer of meat then please come here. For a flat $65 this rodizio has not only skewers of delicious meats including steak, chicken, pork and some parts like livers, hearts and kidneys and other parts and an appetizer table of seafood and sushi. Food is very good but salty... 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

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
