About
K. Rico was created by Tommy Greco and Christian Tanno, close friends who met on their first day of Kindergarten many years ago. Having traveled extensively throughout different parts of Latin America, they became enamored with the diverse cuisines, cultures and flavors of many lands, and wanted to offer an authentic experience based on these culinary and cultural adventures. At K. Rico, the butchering and Dry-Aging of the steaks is done in-house, and our cuts are displayed right there at the table before guests place their orders, resulting in a very unique and memorable New York City dining experience.

We came to K Ricos after watching the matinee performance of Beetlejuice (which is excellent by the way) and had the most delicious steak. Every one of the choices are massive, and the waiters explain the cut and size to you. They've found a nice balance of taking some of the better elements of fine dining and merged them with a steakhouse with down to earth friendly staff, I think one of the owners was there to see us out and have a chat which was great, especially being from the UK its great to talk to local people. It can be a pricey depending on your interpretation of that, but for us we felt it was worth the money. We are hoping we can come back to new york again in the near future and try some different steaks at this lovely place Thanks, keep up the good work!

We chose K Rico Steakhouse for our anniversary dinner whilst in New York. This was our first time together in the city and K Rico did not disappoint. We were looking for a restaurant with a good selection of steaks as my partner was determined to have one, what ever the cost! As a pescatarian myself, I had choices of delicious fish dishes (not so great if you were a vegetarian, but then again it is a steakhouse!) We were well looked after with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine on arrival to celebrate our anniversary. Our waiter was very attentive with lots of knowledge about the different types of steak. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and would recommend it to anyone looking for a special meal whilst in New York City, but doesn't mind paying the high end prices!

When you tell your friends and family that you are visiting New York you will more than likely be given a lengthy list of places to visit and more importantly places to eat. This place HAS to go to the top of your list. Never have I been to a steak restaurant that delivers in all departments but this place did! A warm welcome, a great informative waiter, a lovely table, fantastic cocktails and most importantly the best tasting food from mains to sides! The cuts of steak are shown to you before you order and every piece is huge literally covering the plate. The Filet Mignon which is 14oz is the same price as the Sirloin which is so rare to find. I asked for it blue and it came blue. My wife asked for rare and it came rare. The sides were just as great, the Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and the sweet potato mash were out of this world. Honestly I can’t describe how amazing the food was, you will just have to come and visit for yourself!! Price : I had the 14oz Filet Mignon with Brussels and bacon, sweet potato mash, Diet Coke and large bottle of water. The mrs had the K-Rico on the bone Sirloin 28oz, plantain and Broccoli cauliflower and a cocktail. The price was $173 (£140ish) worth every penny. When we revisit from London we will 100% be returning to K-Rico. 10/10 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Service was A+ very attentive and nice staff. From the moment we entered the restaurant up until we left is was always great service. The host and manager were amazing and all the waiters were top notch. My only issue was the food. Which is huge. The steaks did not have much flavor. They were in much need of salt n pepper. The jalea we ordered as an appetizer was oil and soggy. The prices were way too high for the quality of food served. I ordered a parrillada mixta and upon arrival it was very room temperature almost cold. My wife ordered the K Rico steak which also had little flavor and I’m not a fan of the sizzling pan it’s served on makes the steak kind of continue cooking.

Tommy and the staff at K.Rico were so very helpful to making my best friends birthday so special. They were very flexible with the menu (we did a prefix) which he customized for us based on our budget and even had great options for wine. We sat outside in there cute back door patio that was simply decorated with lights and Heaters to keep us warm. The food was absolutely amazing 10/10. Everyone loved the grilled octopus and the steaks were delicious perfectly seasoned and cooked! We brought our own dessert which they also cut and served for us no additional charge. I would highly recommend this place for your special dinners and will definitely be back!

Came tonight on a last minute plan. What an unbelievable delight. K Rico is such a fresh approach to the stuffy steak house we are all so tired of I had to give them props. From the moment we entered, the music and setting created a warm, hip atmosphere and the staff was warm and engaging. There is a great vibe here. The guacamole trio is insane and the steaks are just too good to not be raved about. We had the bone-in sirloin. It came out sizzling hot and cooked to the perfect temperature. We had it sliced by the kitchen and it was honestly the best steak we have had at a restaurant in years—-And we are carnivores. Get the Tres Leche for dessert. Worth every calorie! Can’t wait to return with a group.

We ate here Sunday night, large party of seven in the courtyard. Everyone had a wonderful meal, and there was not one dish that was served that was not excellent. Personally I had the k-rico sirloin steak which is a bone-in New York strip. I found the price to be an excellent value for the size of steak that was served to me. Honestly it was the best piece of meat I've had in recent memory. Next time I will order it a cooler temperature, because it continued to cook on the sizzling platter. The quality of the beef was so good though that I didn't care. The service was excellent as well . The owner of the restaurant even came by to our table to make sure that everything was excellent. Bon Appétit!

I’m a New Yorker, we love this place, K Rico became our family and our restaurant to go to. The food, steak, service is top. There are many restaurants in New York but not as homey, priced well and that fells like your part of the family like this place. Owners are always there and treat clients and their employees with so much respect that it shows how much love they put making the food.

K Rico Steak House was outstanding! The staff was very tentative and professional. We appreciated Tommy, the owner, greeting us at the door on our way in, and offering us suggestions where to go and what to see on our way out. The wait staff made suggestions and were very informative with details. The restaurant atmosphere was beautiful. We started with two appetizers- empanadas and grilled octopus. Both were amazing and perfectly prepared. Order the grilled octopus!!! You won’t be disappointed! We ordered the Porterhouse steak which was cooked perfectly along with tender baked potatoes. They certainly know how to grill a steak! The desserts looked terrific, but we decided to wait until after our broadway show to grab desserts. There are a lot of choices to eat in NYC. This was a terrific choice. Book a reservation and enjoy the Best food in NYC!

This was one of my best dining experiences ever. The restaurant knew that my daughter and I were visiting NYC to celebrate her upcoming wedding. The hostess warmly greeted us when we arrived and asked us to sit at the bar for a moment while they finished readying a "special" table for us. The owner then came by with 2 glasses of complementary champagne. After seating us, the waiter was great and attentive and the owner gave us an elaborate presentation of the different types of steaks and how they are aged. My daughter ordered the ribeye. I ordered the Peruvian chicken after the owner called it the hidden gem of the menu and described its preparation. Both entrees were outstanding. We preceded the entrees by sharing an outstanding guacamole appetizer, which is 3 different types - regular, chipotle, and one with mango and pomegranates. Finally, when the waiter observed we couldnt decide among 3 south American wines, he brought bottles and glasses for us to sample. All in all, everything was outstanding and it was evident that the owner really cared about our experience, which enhanced the already high quality of the food and service.

We had a party of 6 adults. We had the 14 oz. filet mignon, 28 oz. bone-in sirloin, a New York strip, and the roasted cod. Sides included a baked potato, brussel sprouts, sauteed yuca and steak fries. Everything was hot and perfectly seasoned. The wait staff was very personable, well dressed, and professional. One of the owners, Tommy, greeted us when we were seated and provided a display and detailed description of all the cuts of meat. The restaurant is small, but we made reservations ahead of time and were seated within 10 minutes of arrival. The only reason I did not rate as 5 stars is because the bathrooms are limited and the one I used had a leaking toilet at the base which made the tile floor slick. I had to be careful in my heels. 5 stars all the way once that is fixed!

So you read the reviews and people say this place is wonderful and this place is terrible- I really don't understand how people have given this place a bad review. From the moment we arrived the front of house man and waitress were very attentive. Me and my girlfriend both ordered the 14oz fillet steak, I have had some great fillet steaks in my time but this was by far the best steak I've eaten, it was HUGE but cooked to perfection and seemed to melt in your mouth- we ordered the creamed spinach, sautéed mushrooms and steak fries to accompany our steak and each side was cooked perfectly. The waitress was very nice and polite and kept coming back to make sure everything was to our satisfaction, she recommended we only get one fries instead of 2 (which I felt was good as most people would just be interested in you paying more money) we have visited quite a lot of 'top end' restaurants on our visit to New York and felt this was very well priced especially for sides ($9 each) most places charge $15+ my mum is coming to NYC later on in the year and I will definitely tell her and her friends to visit k rico. Top restaurant thank you very much

This is a really nice albeit small nice inside. The staff are also very nice. However the steak is simply not as good as other establishments I’ve eaten in. It is almost the same price as Keens for example but honestly it was nowhere near as good. You can see that the meat is good however where they are lacking is in the kitchen - someone there is just not picking up that little bit of seasoning or flavouring of the steak to still keep it natural but make it taste great. The service is decent but you get the feeling that people are trying to clear your tables, even though they don’t mind you staying and chatting after the meal. In short a nice place, nice people but the food just does not hit the mark - I’d go elsewhere.

This was the best meal we had in NY! We picked this based on previous reviews and also last minute availability. We were so pleased with our choice! The food was fabulous and the service was outstanding. It was a nice shake up from the traditional steak house. We recommend the mussels, and ask for extra bread because you want want to miss a drop of that sauce!!

My daughter and I have just left this restaurant and I felt compelled to write a review. I’ll get to the point. Probably the best steak we’ve both ever had. We shared the on the bone sirloin and it was delicious. I love that they bring you a trolley with the various steaks on display so that you know what you’re choosing. Great idea otherwise we’d have chosen a steak each which would’ve been too much. Delicious sides of baked potato and broccoli and cauliflower. The staff are attentive and gracious and you couldn’t ask for more. Highly recommend this restaurant if you’re looking for a good steakhouse in NY.

Hell's Kitchen
Just a few strides from the pulsing beat of Times Square, Hell’s Kitchen has a much more local pulse than its buzzing neighbour. The low-key vibe is part of the appeal, but there’s also a new energy arriving in the neighbourhood in the form of modern residential buildings with new retail and food shops. Ninth Avenue is lined with restaurants of all types, from tiny Thai hangouts and Italian trattorias to French bistros and Southern cuisine. Just show up hungry and walk up and down the street, you are bound to find something that looks good. For a more classic taste of the city, grab a bite to eat along Restaurant Row (46th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues) before a Broadway show. The Hudson River provides a break from the city blocks with riverside views, piers for boat tours, and parks perfect for a stroll.
