Steakhouse
K Rico is owned by brothers John P. Greco III & Tommy Greco and their longtime friend Christian Tanno. John is the executive chef of beloved Village eatery Philip Marie. Tommy, making his debut as a restaurateur, is behind the popular lounge The Ritz, voted one of the best bars/lounges in NYC by the Village Voice and Get Out Magazine.

John, painstakingly fastidious about his kitchen, prepped extensively for the opening of this novel restaurant. He traveled throughout South America for several months, diligently researching local cuisine, produce, meats, restaurants, groceries, outdoor markets as well as interviewing residents, coming away with a wealth of invaluable knowledge that he has applied to K Rico’s menu.

So delicious! One of my favorite go-to places in the neighborhood. Our server brought over a cart of steaks to our table , and took the time to explain each cut and preparation. Our party chose all different cuts, each very tender and flavorful . A fish lover was happy with the choices as well . Every-time I come here I am very pleased with the food, the service, and the atmosphere. A home run every single time!

Excellent experience. Skip the ceviche, and possibly any other raw fish dish. Aside from that the food was outstanding and service was exceptional.

An amazing birthday experience! They showed my friends and I a series of different cuts of steak they made, along with recommendations based on our taste.

The 14oz filet mignon was DELICIOUS. Cooked on a rosemary bed and perfectly tender.

This will be one of my go-to places for special events. Thanks for an amazing birthday, K Rico!

Always a great meal with great service. Forget any big chain restaurant and go here if you’re in nyc. Small. Personal. High quality. Service is great. Menu is awesome. Favorite steak place anywhere.

I've been here twice. The steak is amazing. The first time I went here, I really enjoyed it. The second time I ordered the empanada app and a 10 inch hair was in my food (which was in my mouth). Disgusting. I got a free drink (that I didn't ask for or want) and I several apologies. Sorry, not acceptable. Ever. Period. I won't be back. Too bad because the steak and hair NY STRIP is to die for. The brussel sprouts with hair and bacon were also great. I thought there was hair in every bite after that. At least it wasn't short and curly.

Great place, unassuming from the sidewalk but sleek and atmospheric inside. Waiters and staff are charming, attentive and polite.

Food was heaven, muscles to start and New York Sirloin were fresh, seasoned well and cooked to perfection.

Cocktails from the bar are ok... but not what it’s all about here.

Steak was to die for - really excellently cooked. I recommend the Filet Mignon over the K-Rico because of the amount of fat in the K-Rico.

Prices were very high - each steak averaging $45 to $50 with no sides. Each side was $10. For a family of five you can imagine the pain :-)

Other than the price, this is a really excellent restaurant and I would highly recommend you go for any special occasion!

First time at this restaurant. From the minute we arrived they made us feel welcome. Service was excellent and the food was outstanding. Totally professional & courteous. But, here’s how they went above and beyond outstanding... we ordered Sambuca as an after meal cordial. The waiter informed us they had to get a bottle. Turns out the Manager actual ran down the street 2 blocks to get one but the liquor store didn’t have any. They gave us 2 glasses of wine on the house for the wait & refunded the cost of the Sambuca in cash. We tried to leave the cash as an extra tip but the waiter refused only asking us to come back next time we were in town. AMAZING! These folks understand customer service and then some. Highly recommend this restaurant!

The best stake ever, we had one starter each and shared a T-bone steak (and two sides) which was delicious and plenty for us. Unfortunately I’d asked the restaurant to help me celebrate my husband’s 40th by bringing a cake at the end which I asked to be added to the bill, however this did not happen which of course was very disappointing. The guy who greeted us wished my husband happy birthday so he was aware of my message, so some miscommunication there unfortunately.

We had a drink at the bar whilst waiting for our table, and when we moved the bartender asked us to pay the bill separately as he said ‘ if you don’t tip me they won’t give me anything’. I appreciate the tipping expectations in USA but please don’t make it that obvious as it is rude and unnecessary.

And lastly, our waiter didn’t seem to be interested in providing a good service, tried asking some questions about the menu but he was more preoccupied with talking to his colleagues.

I would still recommend this place for the steak as I think it’s really nice and tasty, but I wouldn’t describe this place as romantic (this is how I found it).
