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.

Pre-COVID went multiple times and K Rico was a great spot for a really good meal and nice atmosphere. Went last night for the first time since the pandemic and was very disappointed due to the incredibly poor service and dead atmosphere. The food is still incredible but doesn't feel worth it anymore. A shame because this restaurant was one I would recommend to friends/family but that's no longer the case.

excellent food from the starters to the deserts. The steak was prepared as requested and was flavorful through and through.

The staff was welcoming and provided my wife and I with a complimentary glass of champagne for our anniversary. Co-owner Chris also greeted us gave a presentation of the different cuts of meat.

We were very impressed with the food and service and will not hesitate to return and to recommend to others.

We came for our friend's birthday, service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive. Food was delicious and our friend loved her steak, she had never been to a steak house before and when we googled, K Rico came up as the best steakhouse in Manhattan, and we agree with the rating. Steak was cooked as requested, my cod was delicious, and another friend loved her fried chicken. Salads were great and the server split the 3 ordered salads among the 6 of us without us asking, which was perfect. The back garden is a beautiful place to sit outdoors. Server and attendant remained masked during out entire dinner, Chris, the owner came by and explained what each cut of steak was and when I had a question, clearly explained the difference between wed and dry aged, which really helped my friend make the right decision in ordering. I would highly recommend K Rico for their great service, food and atmosphere.

My favorite go to place for steak!!! Great hidden gem in Hell’s Kitchen. All cuts of steak are available. The appetizers are from South America receipts. Service is always outstanding. Atmosphere is great. Nice music and they have outside dinning in the front or back patio.

The server that helped us was taking care of every table in the place! He was turning and burning that whole joint. He deserves a raise! He felt bad for not being super attentive, so he made up for it by giving our group a few complimentary deserts! Made my birthday dinner! I would def come back again on my next visit to the city.

Had ribeye, mussels, Rico salad, and Brussel sprouts. Flavor of all courses was outstanding. Service was pointed yet the overall noise and private dining feeing is nearly non existent due to spacing I suppose. Manager supplied two free glasses of champagne to help us celebrate our honeymoon. Be careful with offers of add-ons... they will be charged.

I loved K Rico. We were welcomed by Chris, he was wonderful , and very knowledgeable. Benjamin our waiter gave us 5 stars service. The food was delicious, the meat size was very generous. The tres leches cake is a must. The only downside is that we had 2 kids and they only had one high chair.
This restaurant is a hidden gem . I Will definitely be back. Thank you Benjamin and Chris, til next time.

Excellent restaurant.

My girlfriends and I met for dinner on a Saturday evening. Since there were five of us I made reservations. We arrived at 5 and the restaurant was empty.

After being seated, the waiter came over and took our drink orders. A different waiter came to the table with a stand to physically show us the different cuts of steaks they offered which I thought was different.

We each ordered a different cut of steak - I had a ribeye cooked medium and they nailed it! That steak cut like butter. It was HUGE more than I could eat but the downside is it's a la carte so we had to order sides. The sides offered are on the small side so we all decided to share. We had the creamed spinach (amazing!), fries, plaintains, yucca fries and broccoli and cauliflower cooked in garlic. It would have been nice to have a basket of bread or rolls to go with our entrees and even asked for it but it never came.

We also decided to have dessert and we all settled on strawberry cheesecake. Again, the serving was MASSIVE but it was delicious.

Our waiter even gave us complimentary glasses of Limoncello.

The restaurant is on the pricey side, but if you want a really good steak with great service, I would definitely recommend this place.

Fantastic spot!! My favorite when I work in the city. The steaks are great and goes up against any steakhouse in the city. It is unique because of the south American theme.
Service is very attentive. The ambiance is great. They also have a beer garden in the back. great for outdoor dinning.

Simply fabulous steaks. And the cauliflower mash and the brussel sprouts were the perfect sides. And to top everything off, the best tres leches cake in the city.

Great meal, with excellent service. Steaks are excellent. My only issue are the prices, which are about right for a NYC steakhouse but mean that it would be hard to be a regular.

I came back after 2 years . Last year I wanted to come but , gave birth so I couldn’t. When I was able too , we got lockdown . Anyway, we were super excited to come back and , knowing that it didn’t close . I was craving my all time favorite : queso fundido , empanadas steak fries and of course , the steak. My husband and I get the filet (6oz).
Quedó fundido not same quality - cheese wasn’t as pleasant sadly (queso fundido was always my favorite) it was swimming in oil not appealing. The empanadas are not the same quality either - now are only 2 instead of 3(same price for 2 when it was 3) no yellow sauce any more . The steak fries also not same - they aren’t steak fries anymore they’re regular McDonald’s fries with parsley . Disappointed in that sense ... the steak was same goodness. I understand , pandemic loses but , I will hope they will make the same next time I come . Owner was nice though .
