The restaurant Prix-Fixe Group Packages

The authentic Brazilian “churrascaria”

Churrascaria (choo-rah-scah-ree-ah) is the name used to describe a restaurant that serves meat, mostly grilled, and Rodizio is a method of serving different cuts of meat that originated in the south of Brazil in the early 1800s.

The concept is to serve a wide variety of different cuts of beef, pork, lamb, chicken, etc; in succession, to each diner individually right at their table, thus there is not a traditional menu. The restaurant features an all you can eat fixed price continuous tableside service.

Over the past few years we at Plataforma Churrascaria worked continuously in developing a wine list to match our unusual and unique cuisine, a wine selection of depth, breath and diversity. Matching food and wine is an art, but it is an art that should always be fun. This is the concept that we pursue with all the employees. We're constantly updating vintages, monitoring new releases and coaching the staff.

However, this is an over simplification of the process we've incorporated at Plataforma, since we believe that wines are food for the soul, they are definitely the expression of our passionate pursuit of commitment at Plataforma Churrascaria.

With over 1,200 selections our wine list is sure to please all and sundry.

Media Reviews

"Two things are required to truly appreciate Churrascaria Plataforma: a large appetite to keep you eating and a large group to cheer you on."

Click on the logos on the left to see excerpts of our reviews:

What happens when Michael Jordan's The Steak House N.Y.C. goes up against a tough (but oh-so-tender) competitor from the West Side, Churrascaria Plataforma?


Here's what $39.95 buys (at plataforma): a comfortable table comfortable separated from the ones around it; a hard working series of attitude-free South American waiters; a giant and voluminous salad bar; a smooth-fingered pianist pricking the crowd's easy languor with samba rhythms; a half-dozen side dishes including crisply fried plantains (not extra!); and all the perfectly cooked meat you could ever wish to eat. Learn the term churrascaria (choo-rah-scah-REE-ah) if you like meat. It's a generic term for a restaurant specializing in roasted meat, often on a spit; but it might as well mean "orgy of succulent viands" as Plataforma defines it. Of what to complain about Churrascaria Plataforma? That dinner is over somehow too quickly? That the human brain is not neurologically equipped to resist all the temptations? That one's dreams later-meat fueled, caipirinha-fueled, coconut flan fueled-are as vivid and outrageous as any crowd scene in Black Orpheus? Of all his gifts, it is said that Michael Jordan's competitiveness was the most truly legendary. Someone should tell him: He's being outhustled, badly, and in a very high-steaks game.

All you can eat and much, much more, with waiters urging you on. Plus salads.


Two things are required to truly appreciate Churrascaria Plataforma: a large appetite to keep you eating and a large group to cheer you on. A caipirinha or two doesn't hurt either.

Churrascaria Plataforma is New York City's newest rodizio, the all-you-can-eat Brazilian restaurant. It is distinguished from the others by the high quality of the food and the charming attitude of the waiters. The salad bar is extraordinary, a long two-sided affair anchored at the corners by four hot casseroles and tended with fierce pride by a woman who looks as if she has stepped straight from a painting by Picasso. She hovers nearby, pouncing on each ingredient and prepared salad the moment it is less than pristine and making certain that none are ever empty.

For fabulous, fun dining with a Brazilian accent, Churrascaria Plataforma is the next best thing to flying down to Rio...


...The restaurant's mood is upbeat, its ambience casually elegant and friendly, its decor warmly minimalist. Since this is definitely not the kind of dining to rush through, if you're planning to eat before the theatre, reserve a table for 5p.m. Better yet, see the play tomorrow and make Churrascaria Plataforma the centerpiece of tonight's entertainment.

Brazilian-style barbecue is an all-you-can-eat prix fixe meatfest, about as unnouvelle as one could imagine...


...At the cavernous Churrascaria Plataforma, waiters rove the floor, each with a two-foot skewer or a big plate holding a monstrous, meaty offering. Flip the little indicator disk at the edge of your table to its green side, and they stop at your table and carve as you neatly pluck off the pieces with a pair of tongs. They don't stop coming (sirloin! skirt steak! chicken! sausage! ribs! mussels! salmon!) until you turn your indicator back to red.

If it's meat that floats your boat, set sail for Plataforma


...Julie, my friend and neighbor, chose [Churrascaria Plataforma] and did it right. She invited friends and family to join her at Churrascaria Plataforma, a Brazilian restaurant so big, brassy and over-the-top, you could probably have a great time there if you were celebrating an inner-ear infection...

"Five years ago, you would go to Brazilian restaurants [in New York] and 60 percent of the customers would be South American. Nowadays you go and 80 percent, they are American", said Acting Consul General Paulo Vasconcellos...


...Vasconcellos mentioned a few authentic examples in Manhattan and declared the atmosphere at Churrascaria Plataforma in midtown to be "exactly like you would see in a Churrascaria in Brazil. And yes, in Brazil they use the same red and green disks to alert waiters whether they want any more meat.

I've been asked a lot over the course of the year which New York restaurants I'd be most likely to visit out of personal choice rather than professional responsibility. The name I heard myself uttering in response, more than any other, was Churrascaria Plataforma...


...and I am not even sure how to pronounce it. "one of the very best things about Churrascaria Plataforma is that you don't feel as if you're in New York at all. The owners have striven to make this restaurant (unlike several pretenders in the city) absolutely true to Brazilian detail...
