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 steak is fantastic, possibly the best I've had. We had the 45oz porterhouse (shared between 2) and it was delicious and cooked to perfection. Felt very well looked after from the moment we arrived. The servers came over and introduced us to the individual cuts of meat available so we knew exactly what we were getting. They also provided candles and sang Happy Birthday to my girlfriend as dessert was served. Overall a great experience. It wasn't cheap but I guess that's the price you pay for quality. And as a one-off treat I didn't mind paying.

    My daughter and I were in town for the Macys Day parade and found this lovely steakhouse. We had an amazing experience starting with great wine, followed by fantastic steaks and side, and ended with two great desserts. My daughter had never had chimichurri or panna cotta and she loved them both! We were extremely happy with the meal, the waitstaff, and the overall experience. Thank you for making our big dinner in NYC a great and memorable one!

    The quality of the meat is outstanding! It is delicious! The wait staff is very hospitable and efficient. It was my friend's birthday celebration. The presentation was amazing! When they brought out the desert, it looked like there was a small rocket on top of it, the flame was so large then went out! Very exciting! My friend loved it! It was so much fun!

    What a place! It's not just the food, it's the entire experience. An inconspicuous steakhouse in Hell's Kitchen, this is a best kept secret of NYC and the theatre dining scene. There are so few restaurants in NYC where we know the names of the people serving us, but they give each and every person such attention, we can personally thank Benjamin, Marco and Leigh. The food is top notch, they are knowledgable about steaks and South American culture and love to share, and the ambience is perfect. Not too stuffy, not too casual. Prices are beyond reasonable for the area and the quality of the food. We particularly love the chopped salad, the octopus, and the filet mignon. The guacamole is special and we didn't try the oysters but heard others enjoying them at nearby tables. This is a truly genuine Argentinia steak house and I will run back here at every opportunity. Congrats to this gem of an establishment for making it through COVID and providing mid-town with incredible food and attentive and talented staff. See you soon!

    A lovely experience from start to finish, once we finally found it. It was behind some construction right in front. The lit red name sign on the business was small, and hard to see from a taxi. Each and every staff member treated us like royalty. We asked for a quiet table away from the bar area so we were seated in the back. A private table for the two of us was perfect! She even set up a small heater as it was a bit chilly by the large windows. So nice! The menu was descriptive and the display of steak choice very impressive. I opted for the cod, my husband the filet. One of the best entrees I have had in NYC! Flavorful flaky fish with a topping of sauce and fruit salsa that perfectly complemented. My husband’s filet was perfectly cooked, accompanied by 2 dishes is sauces, a chimichurri and a salsa . Our sides were broccoli & cauliflower. Dessert was strawberry topped NY cheesecake with a sauce I thought was the best I have ever had.
