This small, cozy restaurant served us two great meals. The menu is intriguing and offers many good choices. The staff was very friendly and our food came quickly (but not too quickly). Every now and then, when the door to the kitchen swung open, we could see the chef at work. Everyone on staff seemed happy. We stopped here after... More

First time having Brazilian food - loved it! Good portions - delicious! Must comment on the efficiency with which the restaurant is run - seamless. One guy hosted, bussed, cashed - with effortless ease. He was as impressive as the food. Great prices too.

Had a 5 day vacation in NYC and ate at rice "n" beans twice. Great food and drinks. I recommend it and enjoyed everything that I ordered. Wait staff were so friendly and explained the different dishes to me. Happy hour drink specials...you can't beat this great place.

Meal was so quick and food was great. Happy hour drinks are outstanding and remind me of our trip to Brazil. Meals were reasonable price and service good. Small wee restaurant but all the best are!

We came across this by accident and it was completely lovely. Small, intimate and full of character. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was amazing - and plenty of it. Would definitely visit again

I enjoy trip planning and use Trip Advisor frequently to discover new places to dine. This time the cuisine we both decided upon was Brazilian. After looking through the restaurants and reviews in the general vicinity of Times Square we decided to try lunch in the Hells Kitchen area...A Brazilian restaurant called Rice and Beans. The restaurants interior is very... More

Small but perfectly formed! Had a great meal out with friends. Good cocktails and really tasty food. The Empanadas are fantastic as was the salmon and prawn dishes. The steaks looked great too.

I've been going here for 20 years - it's in my 'hood - and the food is consistently dellicious! Love their beans and rice, any of their chicken dishes, but principally the Chicken Ipanema….I often order in, and the food arrives promptly and well, aromatically! Not to mention DELICIOUS!

This was a last-minute after theater idea and we wasn't sure what to expect. When we arrived, the host asked about our reservation and our table was prepared and ready (even though we made it online 15 minutes prior). The food was amazing and in generous portions. We all had enough for snacks later on in the day. My only... More

We came to this small place for dinner - smell was good and visitors looks common, not tourists. We ask for the advice which fish they can recommend and suggestion was Brazilian way roasted fish. We fish was really perfect and the rise and beans match this fish well. The selection of wine was not big, but we take Argentinian... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
