This is my absolute favorite Brazilian restaurant in NYC. This small establishment has been my go to for decades. I lived in Brazil for a time and this is the closest to an authentic “home cooked” feeling. Whenever I eat here I am transported right...back to my temporary home! The pão de queijo and coxinha are my favorite small bites. The Stroganoff (Chicken, Beef, Vegetarian, Shrimp) is divine. Like Feijoada? Theirs is spectacular. The brigadeiros are the best! The staff is always helpful and friendly. I absolutely love this place!More

A tiny place near the theater area. Brazilian style cheese puffs were good. Carioca's beef stew was very well seasoned with lots of cilantro. Pork chops were also good as well as the ribs. Their cocktails were good also. We weren't crazy about their burger...though.More

It is a small restaurant but the food is really authentic. A bit oily but it is what Brazilian food is like. Staff super chatty friendly and fun! This restaurant has been around for many many years which is already a solid testimony to its...quality!More

I am a NYC tour guide and hell's kitchen native. I always recommend this place to my tourists. It is often a first introduction to Brazilian food for them. Their food is so fresh and well cooked. Selections often consist of meat, fish or poultry...served with rice and black or red beans. Also the setting is really delightful and homie.More

Picture this: A summer afternoon, 75 delightful degrees. Manhattan. A small, charming, Brazilian bistro in midtown Manhattan. Windows and doors open (no AC, thank you!!!), a gentle breeze and the late afternoon sun lying across the street outside. People walking by. You sitting peacefully with...a glass of wine, a plate of chicken, salad and beans and rice. It doesn't get any better. This restaurant has been consistently good since the late 90s when I first began to frequent it. Go! You'll thank me..and them.More

First, if you have never had Brazilian food, this is a great introduction to the cuisine. My husband and I went and enjoyed the cheese puffs and rice croquettes with caipirinah and sangria, then the feijoada, which was perfectly cooked and delicious. Second, the staff...was super-nice, the place was clean, and you could not have asked for better entertainment from people walking down the street - it is New York, after all.More

I've walked by several times and since I love Latin comfort food decided to stop by for lunch. Must admit the bottomless caipirinah brunch offer stopped me in my tracks! Had the chicken Milanese and thought the chicken was dry with little flavour. The rice...and beans? Very ok for what I expected considering the name of the restaurant. The caipirinhas were also off. Nothing awful but would not go back.More

Stumbled onto Rice N Beans while walking along 9th street at lunch time. Small restaurant but the food was amazing. We had the picanha steak sandwich. Very tender meat, delicious bread, fresh tomatoes and cheese. The people are friendly, most folks eating there were Brazilian....Definitely the place to go for Brazilian food.More
