Steakhouse
K Rico in New York City is owned by Tommy Greco and Christian Tanno.

Tommy & Chris met each other on their very first day of kindergarten at East Brook Elementary School. During extensive travels throughout Latin America, they became enamored with the diverse cuisines, cultures and flavors from many lands, and wanted to offer an authentic experience based on these culinary and culture adventures.
Serving USDA Prime Cuts in a contemporary ambiance, K Rico also vaunts an outdoor patio with al fresco dining. A full service bar extends through the venue. A semi-private dining area affords intimacy. Seafood from Chile is hand selected, delivered, and served daily. Memorable service has rendered it a top-rated Steakhouse, well-illustrated in the reviews it continues to garner.

Located in Hell’s Kitchen, it is minutes from Times Square/Broadway Theaters. And that the kitchen stays open till 12am is a plus.

The waiter was very attentive and so was the other staff. It was our anniversary and they provided us with free champagne. The food has always been amazing and the drinks are great. I cant wait to experience the outdoor dining in the summer. One of my favorite restaurants hands down.

We had a wonderful dinner at K Rico! We went early and had drinks at the bar. Adam, the bartender, fixed me a perfect mojito and prepared a gin and tonic that met my husband’s specifications! We enjoyed talking to him as we nursed our drinks. Dinner was amazing. I had the 8oz filet and my husband ordered the ribeye. We split the creamed spinach and baked potato. All of it was delicious. Adam suggested a nice red wine from Chili that was perfect with our meal. For dessert I had the Tres Leche Cake and my husband had the flan. Both were delicious. Before bringing the desserts our waiter asked if we were celebrating anything. I told him my birthday was next week. He put a sparkler in my cake and the staff sang Happy Birthday! It was such fun! I highly recommend this restaurant! We will be back!

My boyfriend and I had a date night in the city to go see Jersey Boys and we wanted to go to dinner before the show. I found this place online and it had great reviews. We made reservations and we were impressed. We started with the ceviche and chopped salad for appetizers; both were flavorful. For our entree we got the porterhouse for two. It was probably one of the best porterhouse steaks we’ve ever had, if not the best. For dessert we had the tres leches cake and it was amazing. I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant! Everything was great from the food to the service to the atmosphere. We will definitely be going back!

We came from the UK to celebrate my birthday at K Rico, and honestly it didn’t disappoint. The steak was the best I’ve ever had! The NY cheesecake was unforgettable! And Angelo and the team, well they just made the whole experience one to really cherish. My partner proposed here too and I felt like they really celebrated with us! I really wish them all the best and hope to return one day for that awesome steak!!! Kirsty & Marcus

We were warmly greeted by the host and shown to our table even though we were early for our reservation. The wait staff was very friendly and answered our questions thoroughly. We started with a queso appetizer which was delicious. The waiter showed us the various steaks available and explained each. We both decided on the filet and brussel sprouts and quinoa sides. The sides were delicious and the steaks cooked to perfection. We got the opportunity to meet the owner and he was extremely polite and thanked us for our patronage. We would highly recommend k-Rico’s.

Family splurged on a fancy steak dinner at K Rico and were not disappointed. This was part of our Christmas gift ahead of going to a broadway play. Service was excellent, table was perfect, and steaks were easily amongst the best we’ve ever eaten. Cocktails and wine were great, especially the tres baristas. Highly recommend

My wife and I came here for dinner before our Broadway show. We were both impressed with the food and the service. We had the empanada's for an appetizer that were amazing. My wife had the skirt steak and I had the filet mignon. Both dishes were awesome!

We loved it -- we had a group of 10 people, but that did not impact the speed or attentiveness of the service staff one bit. The food was excellent, with so much flavor and a great variety given the South American influence. Would highly recommend this place and look forward to going back again!

The food was absolutely amazing. Tommy came to check on us more than once. Best part is, we ended up there before they opened and instead of making us wait outside Tommy was nice enough to let us sit at the bar until they were ready. Best dinner we had while visiting NYC. The Tres Leches cake was absolutely amazing.

This was absolutely outstanding. What a treat. Had no idea that this place existed but the steak was unbelievably good, sides were amazing. I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say this is in the top 1% of steaks I’ve ever eaten.
