Description: The restaurant is owned by brothers John and Tommy Greco along with their longtime friend Christian Tanno. The Greco name should ring a bell: Chef/Restaurateur John oversees the beloved Village eatery Philip Marie (open 18 years) that serves up delicious American cuisine extolling a "farm to table" sensibility. Tommy, making his debut as a restaurateur, is behind the popular lounge The Ritz, voted one of the best bars/lounges in NYC by the Village Voice and Get Out Magazine. John, painstakingly fastidious about his kitchen, prepped extensively for the opening of this novel restaurant. He traveled throughout South America for several months, diligently researching local cuisine, produce, meats, restaurants, groceries, outdoor markets as well as interviewing residents, coming away with a wealth of invaluable knowledge that he has applied to K Rico's menu. The elegantly appointed restaurant boasts a dining room, outdoor patio garden and sidewalk seating in the springtime. A feature of the kitchen is the authentic "plancha" grill that will cook the wealth of fine steaks offered.

One of the best meals I have had I'm hells Kitchen. The owners truly understand what amazing food tastes like. I recommend this for a causal dinner with friends or a romantic dinner with the one you love. If you haven't tried K Rico you're truly missing out on an amazing experience

My family and I had brunch here, and it was by far the best meal we had in New York. The food was spectacular, and the staff friendly and accommodating. They even made hot chocolate for my daughter even though that's not on the menu. We would definitely return.

What an awesome evening out.
Great food, great service!!
A really good night out.

The steak at this place is ridiculously good. I come from South Africa and we are a meat eating nation. But the porterhouse steak I had was the best ever.

Mark, the manager, was brilliant. Very attentive to our needs but not over the top in our face.
Drew, who was our waiter was great, Knew the menu very well and gave us plenty of options.

When back in new York, will definitely visit again.

My husband and I recently visited K Rico on our final night in the city for our honeymoon. We had made a decision that whilst we were there we would avoid commercial places and try and find more local type restaurants. It ranked very highly on restaurants locally to our hotel in Times Square, so we gave it a try.

We phoned to book a couple of hours beforehand and had no problems securing a table. When we arrived we were a little concerned as we were in shorts and casual tops and the staff were dress in white shirts and black ties. However, they assured us there was no dress code so we carried on in.

They asked if we wanted to sit out on the back patio and we chose to do so, as it was a nice sunny day. In hindsight, we should have chosen to sit inside in the air conditioned restaurant, as the back patio is reasonably small and is surrounded by plants and buildings, so was a little like an oven! Not the restaurant's fault obviously, but if you do happen to visit on a hot day I would sit out of the sun.

We ordered a starter and main each - my husband went for Fufu De Chorizo and I had Chile Relleno. Both were sensational, but particularly my Chile Relleno. It was incredibly tasty and fresh and I could have done with it being a little larger as I didn't want it to end!

For mains I had the fillet steak, my husband the plantain encrusted cod and we shared some mashed caulfilower and brussel sprouts with bacon. My fillet steak was cooked to perfection, perfectly medium rare and the sides were again, really, really tasty. My husband's fish was also fantastic, fruity but savoury at the same time.

I am rating the restaurant 5 out of 5 on the basis of the food; the one thing I would say was that the service was average. Other reviews have talked about how personal and brilliant the service has been, but we didn't experience this. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't terrible. However the waiters didn't seem like they particularly wanted to be there and weren't overly enthusiastic about ensuring us a good time. Also, I'm not sure whether it was because it was quiet, but we seemed to have two waiters, who would come over and do the same thing, one after the other. A little odd.

Regardless of this, I would absolutely come here again when in the City. Food was far and beyond the best we had in terms of more fine dining style on our holiday; the restaurant is nice and modern and central so easy to get to if you're staying in Manhattan.
