The Churrascaria Plataforma in Midtown NYC is a classic and highly rated Brazilian restaurant. It serves the traditional rodizio or what I call the carnivore’s dream.
You are given a card that has red on one side and green on the other. If you have it with the green side up, wonderful servers with different cuts of meat will keep coming to your table and offering you some. If you wimp out and turn it to the red side, they won’t bother you until you flip it back over to the green side.
being a confirmed carnivore myself, I have visited many of these types of restaurants. I can say that the meat at Charest Korea Plata forma was excellent. Many times it’s salty and doesn’t really have that great steak flavor. Churrascaria Plataforma cooked their steak and seasoned it to perfection. They also provided the right temperature when they asked because many times they will ask you, you’ll say you want it rare, and give you a well-done cut.
The gourmet salad bar had many great items besides just greens including roasted beets, other grilled vegetables and pieces of fish for your friends that really like you and go with you to rodizio restaurants but don’t eat meat.
If you’re in New York City Midtown, definitely visit this place as you won’t be disappointed.
