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.

    Came in for an anniversary dinner yesterday evening around 630. Latin flavors + steakhouse is a must-try. Was a lovely time, a peaceful nook in the garden enjoying everything that came out of the kitchen. Everything was on point. Drink, appetizer, the steak, and the desert. No weakness anywhere. Ordered - Blood orange margarita Empanadas Chicken / Beef K Rico Steak Filet Mignon Maracuya Desert

    K-Rico is an authentic South American steakhouse with lovely ambiance and great service. One of the best steaks I’ve ever had, and the desserts are delicious, too.

    I am a frequent customer (Rescue Chief from NJ) of K-Rico for the last 6 years and I brought a new person to K-Rico last night (as I always try to do) and K-Rico impressed the hell out of this person so much so that his own words (text message) later that same night was "Thank you for turning me onto K-Rico and that restaurant was OFF THE HOOK!"

    K Rico is consistent in providing excellent food and service for steak lovers, as well as great options for non-carnivores. Its appetizers and side dishes include wonderful South American choices not available in most quality steakhouses in Manhattan. You can always count on K Rico for a great meal.

    My friend and I came to New York for our first vacation since the pandemic. We wanted to have a great steak dinner. After much searching of the best steak houses in NYC we decided on K Rico South American Steakhouse and what a good decision it was!! Upon arrival we were warmly greeted and seated. Our server was immediately at our table with water and he informed us he was ready to take our drink order anytime we were ready. We ordered a drink, an appetizer, salad and main course. The food was absolutely delicious and the service impeccable. I forget to mention we ate at an outside table which was delightful. Overall a wonderful dining experience that I highly recommend!

    I had the NY strip 16 oz. I asked for it extra rare. The plate came sizzling hot to the table looking very good. Problem was , by the time you start to eat, the steak was easily medium to medium rare. Steak was good but not outstanding. The service was great and a very friendly staff. Strawberry cheesecake was to die for.

    First, it’s very expensive. The food is good, but it’s pricey. Not sure if this is typical, bc it was our first time dining there, but we didn’t even have drinks or appetizers and spent $80/each. We both had fish (salmon entree and the Carina entree), which were very good. We ordered a side of broccoli and Brussels sprouts, which were pretty basic - nothing fancy and both had an iced tea & plain coffee afterwards. No dessert. No cocktails. $80 bucks each. The wait staff was very professional and friendly, the ambience was lovely and quiet. And, again, while the food is really good, I would probably not recommend, just because it’s way over priced for the value.

    Met mijn zoontje gegeten. Het was allemaal heel er lekker. Fijne bediening Super hoe ze uitleg geven over het vlees. Het eten kwam wel snel na elkaar. We waren in ruim 1uur weer buiten. Terwijl het niet echt goedkoop is. De wijnen erg goed! Zeker voor herhaling vatbaar

    Good food but definitely too expensive; rib eye very good but it’s not necessary to put so much oil on top. Grilled meat must be simple, no dressing needed. And 150 $ for 2 ribs, 1 fried potatoes and 2 beers is too much.

    This was our second visit to K Rico, last visiting in Feb 2020. It didn’t disappoint, our fish starter was amazing, very fresh and plenty to share. Both the Fillet Mignon & Sirloin on the bone we’re cooked to perfection and along with the side dishes we had an amazing meal. Will definitely visit again next time we are in NYC
