The authentic Brazilian “Churrascaria”
Welcome to Churrascaria Plataforma, where the vibrant flavors of Brazil come alive in an authentic and immersive dining experience. Nestled in the heart of New York City, our restaurant invites you to embark on a culinary journey that celebrates the rich tradition of Brazilian churrasco in an elegant and welcoming atmosphere.
We are more than just a restaurant; it's a celebration of Brazilian culture and gastronomy. Established in 1996 with a passion for delivering an unparalleled dining experience, our team is dedicated to showcasing the best of Brazilian cuisine, hospitality, and the time-honored tradition of churrasco.
At the heart of our dining concept is the Churrasco, a centuries-old Brazilian grilling tradition that takes center stage at Plataforma and will start when you flip your coaster-sized “chip” from the red side to the green side, signaling the meat runners you are ready to be served.. Our skilled and experienced gauchos (meat runners) expertly carve succulent cuts of meat tableside, offering a wide array of premium beef, lamb, pork, and poultry. The meats are slow-roasted to perfection over a grill, ensuring a smoky, flavorful result that captures the essence of Brazilian churrasco. All served with a selection of shareable side dishes (rice, black beans, French fries, fried yucca, vegetables etc.) served family-style.
Complementing the churrasco experience is our expansive and vibrant salad bar. Featuring a diverse selection of fresh salads, vegetables, artisanal cheeses, seafood and hot dishes dishes, the salad bar is a feast for the senses. It provides a perfect balance to the rich and savory flavors of the grilled meats.
