K Rico South American Steakhouse K Rico is a fantastic place to enjoy some carb loading pre-race and some celebratory steaks post-race! Call us for a reservation. K Rico is owned by brothers John P. Greco III & Tommy Greco and their longtime friend Christian Tanno. John is the executive chef of beloved Village eatery Philip Marie. 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.
