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.

A personality of its own , K Rico provides a menu of steak house cuts, and appetizers and sides that separates them from others. First class cocktails and house wine selections.

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.

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.
