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 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...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...More
