The salad bar was good. It was a good taster of many differently prepared meats but it is a bit of a meat overload. Expensive but we knew the pricing going into it so it wasn't a shock. Good experience but we wouldn't make it...More

We loved this churrascaria. Having lived in Brazil for many years, I look for authenticity and Plataforma has it in spades. It is expensive, but I found it worth it. The meat was delicious. The salad bar is mediocre, but I don't go to churrascarias...More

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".
