This restaurant looks like a Baskin Robbins of rice pudding. If you love rice pudding this is the place for you. They must have 20-30 different flavors and toppings. It is a immaculate, clean and decorated in cheery orange and white. Always make a point of stopping when visiting NYC

This place is amazing. The idea is great. We discovered this while walking around NYC and decided to go in to get a snack. They have various flavors of rice pudding that are all equally delicious. Don't be afraid to ask for a sample. You can add more than one kind of rice in your bowl. They have different sizes,... More

This little gem is a tasty adaptation of the current frozen yogurt trend. There are several flavors of creamy rice pudding and several toppings to choose from. The servers were helpful with recommending which toppings were particularly good with which flavors of the rice puddings. The container it comes in is very cute and reusable. Sadly, one of my family... More

This place is a little gem we discovered during our trip to NYC. We tried the chocolate hazelnut and coconut flavoured rice pudding and they were both delicious! It is right down the street from Lombardi's so grab a pizza for supper and head here afterwards for dessert. The smallest size is big enough for two to split but if... More

Be sure you try several flavors before making a decision. Their rice pudding offerings have very good texture, often with varying conditions of firmness.

really good rice pudding with an outstanding décor. Let us face it, rice pudding is an easy dessert to make, but this place dared to serve just that and do it fun. this is a great idea, I would have rice pudding every day if it were as available as fries and burgers.

We heard about this place on a walking tour in the area and decided to give it a try despite me not being a rice pudding fan. I'm officially a convert! We shared a $9 bowl, trying Butterscotch & Coast to Coach cheesecake. Both were incredible. I will dream of this place for a long time to come!

Went here for dessert after a meal in the city. The place is an interesting and unique concept though the price is a bit much. Would be great if they added a smaller size than the solo to help customers save money. Tons of flavors to try from, some better than others but don't be afraid to ask for a... More

After a birthday celebration at Pearl & Ash we took a stroll over a few blocks to Rice to Riches. If you are a rice pudding junkie, coming here is like going to heaven. The flavors are endless. From the year round favorites such as Old Fashioned Romance (traditional), Cinnamon Sling, Coconut Coma, Play It Again Butter Pecan, Fluent In... More

Neighborhood Profile
Nolita
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
