This is a latino restaurant specializing in meat. The staff is friendly. The salads were ok. The meat had no taste! But what really bothered us is that we both got sick after the meal and both had to run to the bathroom..... For a...More

Good friends of ours moved out of state and we enjoyed a lovely reunion with them at K Rico. Not only was the meal superb but we were so impressed with the knowledgeable and attentive service (not always easy with a big party of 8!)....More

Known as steakhouse but the Octopus is by far the best I have ever eaten. Would have ordered again as a main course if steak had not already been ordered. It was THAT good. Nice place/atmosphere. Will definitely find reason to get back for business....More

Went with friends before a play. Got a full education on the types of steak. Amazing. Had the strip steak and it was fabulous. The celery salad and chopped salads were great. Bartender makes amazing drinks. Can’t wait to go back

Not sure since we were there in November and didn't ask about New Year's Eve...would be best to call them directly to find out.

How wonderful of you to ask. People so often just dress like slobs these days. Why don't you join the movement to showing a little care and help make the dining experience more special!?

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.
