I was looking for a quick lunch after arriving in NYC for a business trip. Stumbled upon this gem. Food was terrific. Staff were even better. A bit small, but well worth it if you can snag a table.

I'm a foodie...brought up in a family of cooks who didn't limit us from trying ALL types of foods. I also was lucky enough to be DNA partnered with creole cooking AND growing up around the Caribbean culture. In the south rice and beans is a staple, in the islands rice and peas is a staple. So a restaurant called... More

I was looking for Brazilian restaurant around my house in Hell's Kitchen and found various options but something in the photos of this place made me lean towards it. The place is very small and cosy and there were two waiters serving. I took the cheese puff (Pão de Queijo) and grilled top sirloin (Picanha Grelhada com Alho) both were... More

I wanted a quick meal and felt like having Brazilian cuisine. Rice N Beans is very small, about 10 tables a little wider than a long corridor and when I was there, almost every table was filled. I got seated at a table near the door and a glass of water and a menu appeared shortly after. I ordered a... More

It's a small place with about 10 tables. It's a cozy little place with flags and memorabilia hanging from the ceiling. The menu has a decent selection of items: salads, appetizers, entrees, desserts & drinks. The food is very good, prices are reasonable, and the service is good. The times I've been there, I've seen quite a few Spanish speaking... More

Small Brazilian restaurant on the 9th Avenue. Quality food for affordable price! We decided to have lunch there every day during our stay in NYC

We were looking for a place to have dinner after going to a show and stumbled upon Rice and Beans. We were a group of six people, with a couple of very picky eaters in the crowd. Everybody loved what they ordered and the service was excellent in this tiny little restaurant. The restaurant is Brazilian, but it wasn't as... More

Rice N Beans is a small Brazilian restaurant in the heart of Hells Kitchen. Be sure to make a reservation as seating is limited. If in the winter, I would also recommend asking for a table away from the window to avoid the cold when people enter the restaurant. We tried the Brazilian beef pastries and the Brazilian sausage appetizers.... More

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.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
