The price is high but the quality isn’t. Lamb chops were tough, the meat was chewy, not prime. You are encouraged to order the churrascaria, but for $5 less you can eat to your heart’s content at the buffet. A senior discount of $13 is...More

If you need to satisfy your meat tooth, this is the place. Delicious, perfectly cooked varieties of skewered grilled meats, cut to your plate. Go hungry, eat lots. Don’t miss the salad bar, either.

Sure you can. The various meet is presented at table and you decide what you want. There is a wide selection and not much pork - I also preferred the beef.

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".
