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.

This was my first visit to K Rico Steakhouse. The atmosphere was pleasant and I felt more than covid safe.

The owner of the Steakhouse was very hospitable and friendly.

We will visit again. Thank you!

Really enjoyed a post-theatre meal there; host was gracious and informative, and we enjoyed trying the regional specials along with the steak...a apertif on the house was a topper to a nice evening in the garden

This place is amazing
The atmosphere was nice we sat in the backyard, they respect the 6ft rule and the decoration was very beautiful however the steak was kind of disappointing
I had filet mignon it was bland I’ve had better steak before that’s only the downside of my experience
The appetizer was very good

It was my bday, the owner him self took the time to explain each plate, everything was so delicious, the staff were incredibly kind amd the price is just right for the quality and taste of the food. We love the salsa music playing during the dinner, the dessert was also good. Im already speaking of the place with my friends and family.

Great find..... A steakhouse in Hells Kitchen. Nice menu and wine list. Great cuts of steak. Service is very attentive. I always stop in when I work in the area. They have outside dinning and a backyard beer garden. The ambiance is very pleasing.

Was disappointed they were no longer participating in Restaurant Week, but kept the reservation anyway.

The owner greeted us and apologized for not honoring restaurant week and thanked us for coming in during the COVID 19 resurge and provided a complimentary appetizer. Very congenial staff and amazing food; glad we stayed

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.
