Enough of Orso!

Don't get me wrong, Orso is amazing! but we've been there every year for the last 8! We need a change! Can anyone recommend something within walking distance of the W Times Square, similar in $$ range and quality to Orso, can take a party of 15? doesn't have to be Italian.

Churrascaria Plataforma is a fun Brazalian restaurant. Great with a group. All you can eat. Excellent quality. Its at W49th between 8th and 9th. We walked there from Times Square very easily.

Right on Bennie!

A memorable night (or so they tell me) started at Churrascaria Plataforma and ended at the Russian Vodka House.

Churrascaria Plataforma is a great choice for a group. If you haven't been to this type of place before, here's a few tips, don't load up at the salad bar, the cheaper cuts of meat come out first, save room for the better meats at the end.

they have a website... churrascariaplatforma.com. Have your friends check it out. It may help convince them.

We went there with a group of 30 business associates during a convention. You would not believe the size of the wine bottle that was ordered. HUGE!!!!!! Boy did somebody have some talking to do to convince Accounting to pay their expense report!! Gee I miss the 90s.
