    flavor

    Sure, you can go somewhere, get a cheap cut of meat and some fries (everybody does fries) to soak up the alcohol, but then you can also enjoy a little elegance, some olde new Williamsburg (before the high rises but at the tail end of the crime, hookers, artists lofts and after hours coke bars. Rye is kind of the Bamonte's of the next wave, the end of an era, but also, a great place to relax and have a good meal without getting hung up on the flash-in-the-pan mob scene of cheap cuts of oversalted beef and plain fried starch that passes for cuisine elsewhere. Not that I'm turning my nose up at the fries - they are every bit as good as the other places you might mention, if you lived in the neighborhood. Oh and the cocktails are good too, if you're into that sort of thing. Downstairs you could just kind of hang out like a rock star and spend the last dime of your unemployment check or trust fund on real rye whiskey. I know I am.

    Stick to brunch

    Rye is def an great brunch spot, the rye benedict, pork belly sandwich, scotch eggs are all on point...however went to dinner with some friends last week and was somewhat dissapointed.The brussel sprouts were very good but... The only sandwich offered was the meatloaf which was bland and mushy and the lamb that i had was a tiny chop over a very unpleasant smelling rattatouille. For $20 i expected a little more. Will def stick with Rye as my brunch spot but as for dinner no thank you

    Great food, the place could be cleaner

    Rye has a delicious menu, and well executed! Went with two friends and had no wait, ordered crab croquettes that were to die for from our server who was very sweet and constantly checked up on us, and then each picked up some entrees and drinks- great place!

    Where's my old fashioned?

    I used to love this place. It was my go-to for a great meal and a great drink after a stressful day at the office. The food is great and their Old Fashioned was amazing. Unfortunately, like all good things it could not last. I was there last week and got a subpar Old Fashioned, which was really disappointing, so I tried, reluctantly, another drink, a Jack Rose and it was even more disappointing. But, everyone has an off night so I went back last night. Another--this time poor, Old Fashioned--where has my favorite drink gone? I loved Rye and the food is great but I am thinking take out and maybe hitting somewhere for some real cocktails.

    Delicious food, fantastic service

    Rye is a fantastic restaurant. Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable, and genuinely passionate about food & wine. The food was incredible - and we didn't even order the meatloaf sandwich. Highly recommended! Will definitely be going back.

    Thanks Rye!

    So my mother was in town and she wanted to take me and my friends out for dinner. It was 4 guys + a mom and we had a ballin' good time. We tried to go Walter Foods and were faced with a long wait. We then wandered over to Rye not knowing what to expect, but hearing good things. We waited awhile while drinking old-fashions. Everyone was delightful and working to get us a table. Our waiter was super knowledgeable and hilarious older gentlemen who guided us through the meal. I tried the Oysters, Short Rib Terrine, Lamb Shank, Mac & Cheese which were all excellent. but the Pear and Endive Salad was my favorite item of the night and a recommendation of our server! They also had a sweat deal - shot of nice whiskey + beer of your choice for $6 dollars. All in all, it was not cheap, we spent over $400 for 5 people but we drank a lot! While my mother was in town, we went to Union Square Cafe and ABC Kitchen. Every step of the way Rye was the winner! Thanks Billyburg. Thanks Mom!
