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".

“Carnivore Paradise!”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

My wife and friend recently visited the Plataforma located in Tribeca. I found this one to be cosier and more refined than its counterpart in Midtown, though the buffet bar seemed more lavish at the latter place. The staff here were quite friendly and ready to please us by attending to our meat preferences. A good tip is to come hungry, with family or friends. Make sure to take your time and don't stuff yourself with the side dishes or buffet in order to take full advantage of the main attraction: the churrasco! Also, be sure to make room for dessert! I would recommend the passion fruit mousse - it's quite refreshing.

Come hungry cuz you need room for all the food that's included in this all you can eat paradise. The buffet of salads and appetizers alone fills you up but you can't miss the variety of meats that they offer.... Excellent food

“Enjoyable but expensive”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

One price for all. Avoid the salad bar. Cheaper meats (sausage, turkey, chicken etc) are served first. Steaks and more expensive cuts of meats later on. Save room for the expensive stuff. Advice, just a taste at first, the better foods are coming later...
