Classic meat eaters paradise. Brilliant execution of a fun concept with impeccable New York service and an impressive buffet (don't overdo it!). The key is to be patient and not get full on either the buffet or the cheaper meat cuts, and know when to...More

The meat is really very well cooked and the service is efficient and friendly. Wines are expensive, but they have an interesting selection of local wines. Salad bar is poor, but who goes to a meat restaurant to eat salad?

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.

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".
