I enjoy trip planning and use Trip Advisor frequently to discover new places to dine. This time the cuisine we both decided upon was Brazilian. After looking through the restaurants and reviews in the general vicinity of Times Square we decided to try lunch in the Hells Kitchen area...A Brazilian restaurant called Rice and Beans. The restaurants interior is very tiny but nicely decorated and very intimate... The food is fabulous... I ordered the beef stew. The stew had chunks of meat, tomatoes, vegetables and savory spices in addition,black beans and sweet plantains accompanied the dish... My husband ordered beef empanadas which were huge and came with a tasty sauce... I would highly recommend this eatery. By the way, the restaurant menu was reasonably priced and that is a plus as well... Thanks Trip Advisor for a great find and a fabulous meal.

Small but perfectly formed! Had a great meal out with friends. Good cocktails and really tasty food. The Empanadas are fantastic as was the salmon and prawn dishes. The steaks looked great too.

I've been going here for 20 years - it's in my 'hood - and the food is consistently dellicious! Love their beans and rice, any of their chicken dishes, but principally the Chicken Ipanema….I often order in, and the food arrives promptly and well, aromatically! Not to mention DELICIOUS!

This was a last-minute after theater idea and we wasn't sure what to expect. When we arrived, the host asked about our reservation and our table was prepared and ready (even though we made it online 15 minutes prior). The food was amazing and in generous portions. We all had enough for snacks later on in the day. My only regret is that it's so far away from my home to visit regularly, but it's good enough to visit when in the city!

We came to this small place for dinner - smell was good and visitors looks common, not tourists. We ask for the advice which fish they can recommend and suggestion was Brazilian way roasted fish. We fish was really perfect and the rise and beans match this fish well. The selection of wine was not big, but we take Argentinian Chardonnay which also played well with the food.
The check looks simply unbelievable - dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine costs us 70 dollars only.
Strongly recommend (at least this fish for sure!).
