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 service was outstanding, the wine was fantastic,started with the super tender octopus, then my ribeye and my wife’s filet were probably the best we have ever had. The tres leche and lemon cello was the perfect cap to a perfect evening.

Food was expensive but not great. My steak came out raw. They fix it but the flavor was mediocre. I wish I went some where that had better food for less.

Was blown away by the quality of the food. Absolutely sublime! Loved the relaxed quite atmosphere with quiet music playing in the background. Was abit hard to understand the waiter because of the mask but that’s understandable. Would recommend to anyone looking for a steakhouse.

Fantastic meal here last week. The owner greeted us and brought out the steak cart. He gave the best description I have ever heard of each cute of meat. My 16 year old daughter that never eats steak ate an entire filet mignon. The only negative was an over cooked baked potato. Everything else was perfection!

We have been to K Rico about 4 times, and this visit just didn't meet its previous standards. My wife ordered the K Rico margarita, here first time, and admittedly, don't know much about tequila, but it was not good, and the waiter graciously exchanged it for a white wine sangria. That was good. Another waiter comes out with a platter of steaks for display to show you the cuts of meat. They weren't especially marbled, and that should have been my first clue, but they were display steaks only. We chose the porterhouse for 2, medium rare. Although it was fine, it was slightly under cooked (better than over cooked). I prefer my steak more seasoned, so I asked for salt and more ketchup (for the fries), 4 times. The real problem was with the tenderness of the steak. At first cut, we thought the knives were dull, but alas, it was the meat. The waiter also stated it was aged a month and a half, and I was unable to determine this. I primarily eat aged prime steaks from the butcher where you can watch it age. The bone will give it away. We didn't complain about the quality of the meat. We didn't feel it was bad, it just was not that good. We chose to sit outside, which they had set up tables at the rear. It was a very nice atmosphere, and a beautiful setting, on a picture perfect night. We will try K Rico again to see if this was an oddity, because the other times, the food was pretty good.

I have been to K-Rico close to 15 times over the last few years and I always receive excellent service, amazing dinners and the most delicious seasoned steaks (that no other steakhouse in NYC can beat). I have recommended K-Rico to many of my friends & family numerous times over.
