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".

Busy Saturday evening. Reserved and was seated after a short 15 minute wait. Big salad/starter bar with great variety; however, went straight to the meat. Picanha and ribeye were both delicious and waiters were very attentive to replenish plate when empty (and disk was turned to green). The bottle of Malbec wine accompanied the meats superbly and the jazz band playing just complimented the evening. Very enjoyable. Would return.

One of the best restaurants I have ever visited! Meat, meat, meat...if you love meat, this is the place you have to be. But also great side menus and vegetables, deserts...oh, my...great food! People working there are so friendly and nice...cannot expect more. Trust me you will have great experience there.
One thing...if you want quiet time with your loved one, careful, this is very friendly place, so not so quiet, but great!

Every time we are in NYC we eat here. If you love roasted meats, this is your place. While I would not consider it inexpensive, we just skip lunch and eat a larger dinner. The variety of meat is amazing from beef, to lamb, to pork, to chicken. The salad bar is unmatched, but on the last trip the hearts of palm were missing. If you are a small portion eater, go for lunch. Cheaper, and the selection is almost as good. Then just skip dinner. Finally, order a caipirinha, the best in the USA. Note to Management: I had two caipirinhas on my last visit, one from the cart lady, and one at the bar. The professional bar tender’s version was far superior. Either train the cart lady or kill the cart.
