    I was thrilled when we found the restaurant had moved from 9th ave to 10th Ave. There were 3 of us for holiday celebration. Two of us had arrived half an hour early they gave us the option on the bar or our table. We sat at the table. We had caipirinhas to drink fantastic as I remember. We have Pao de Quejio Coxihna and Bolinho de Bacalhau. ( look them up on the menu so worth it ) Main course Fejioada for two was spectacular and huge portions. I had the Chicken in Okra it is my favorite dish and yet I eat a lot of beef . the dish is so flavorful, I should had ordered another one to go I loved it. The bartender/ waitress was so enjoyable and easy going . The other waiters gave great service. The restaurant isn't on the main strip but so worth it, we've already made a reservation for our next outing with them

    They make you order off the fixed price menu if you have a big party which isn’t as good as their real menu. But the food is really good. Don’t bring everyone.

    Great food and drinks. Loved the special it was full of flavor and forna carnivore it was awesome. The rest of the party had beef and loved it. Great plantains! Appetizers were great, croquettes both cod fish and chicken/cheese were delicious! I didn't try the empanada, but the rest of the party loved them.

    Excellent Brazilian restaurant, we had a great time here, the food is amazing and reminds me of my grandma’s food. Everything was so fresh, the Feijoada is terrific and we loved the Moqueca as well, coxinha and pão de queijo for appetizers are winners. We had caipirinhas and Brahma for drinks, excellent as well. thank you Rice X Beans, we’ll definitely be back soon.

    Our first visit to Rice & Beans was fabulous! The owners are clearly fine, native Brazilian chefs. The staff was very kind and courteous; very short wait for any of our orders. We lived in Brazil for three years, and the food and beverage was the most authentic that we have found in the United States. Highly recommend the Pastéis, Pão de Queijo, and Coxinha for small bites with cocktails. You must have a Caipirinha! The house-made Pineapple Mint is fabulous, as are the other tropical flavors. We also loved the freshness of the Salada de Palmito before dinner. We shared the Mini Feijoada and Seafood Moqueca, which were as good as the best restaurants in Sao Paulo and Rio. If you have room for dessert, the Creamy Coconut Pudding, and the Passion Fruit Mousse were both delicious. Only wish we lived in NYC to eat here weekly!!
