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.

    Was late for my booking due to other reasons, the restaurant can accommodate straight away as the restaurant was actually quite quiet on Sunday night. Food is average, ordered bone in sirloin steak, slightly over cooked as not really medium rare. Also ordered roast rod, it’s okay, nothing special and the K Rico chopped salad is too salty. Overall okay but won’t visit again as have better options in the area.

    We spent a lot of money here and found the service perfunctory. The waiter had a lot of tables and we found ourselves waiting a lot. Three of the desserts we ordered weren’t available; one because it took 15 mins and they said it was too late to order (ie they needed our table).

    We have been to K Rico for our anniversary for the last 3 years and it is always a great experience. They greet you with a warm hello at the door and immediately take care of you. The Maitre D is knowledgeable and very pleasant to speak with. I will be coming back to this restaurant as long as ownership does not change!

    I had 4 in our party. We all ordered steak. One was perfect cook as ordered. Yep we're over done to requested medium, and one was under cooked. I would go again to give them a second chance due to the flavor was outstanding.

    Exceptional steak before Theater. The creamy spinach is delicious. Every time I’m in New York, K Rico is on my go too list. I’m not a fan of a sweet maraschino cherry Old Fashioned and the restaurant does not have a large cube for bourbon. They did have Blanton’s and Stag bourbon which are both great.

    You can shop around for steakhouses in NYC and even choose a popular more well-known one, but you are not going to land a better one than K-Rico. Found this culinary delight a couple of years ago, and have not stopped coming here for beef, steak, pork, and fish. Phenomenal.

    Outstanding. Attentive smart servers and management are intimately involved with engaging diners. Food never fails. Choices are phenomenal. My guests had beef and found it extraordinary in its preparation and eyecatching in its preparation. I always (rather a regular diner) have the pork which is succulent beyond measure. Thank you for another great night!

    It was wonderful, from the food, service and ambiance. I believe almost everyone that worked there came over to make sure everything was great. The drinks were amazing as was the food. Marco was great and his recommendations were on the mark. The dry aged tomahawk was cooked perfectly and had so much flavor. The chicken was delicious. The tres leches was out of this world! We made a future reservation as soon as we walked out.

    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

    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.
