The rise of all-you-can-eat Brazilian rodizio restaurants is clearly a phenomenon closely related to the American steakhouse explosion. Churrascaria Plataforma is Manhattan's best rodizio by far, and also its most expensive and upscale (which can feel somewhat forced, given that it's basically a smorgasbord). You get your salads and sides from the teeming buffet; thereafter commences a parade of waiters bearing roasted meats on skewers—often as many as twenty varieties in an evening. If you can eat every one of them, and ask for seconds, you'll earn the admiration of the waitstaff, if not the owners.

It may seem odd that there's sushi in a Brazilian restaurant, but Brazilians are crazy for sushi: Most every rodizio in Brazil offers it.
