Fodor's Review

An atmospheric hideaway on a little-trod block, Rye serves French bistro classics and creative American fare. Dark wood, leather cushions, a mosaic-tile floor, and a century-old oak bar hark back to the days of speakeasies and illicit booze. Capture the mood with one of the excellent cocktails, perhaps a Havemeyer, made with overproof rye. The signature meatloaf sandwich, a daydream-worthy delight, comes with crispy buttermilk fried onions and horseradish sauce. After dinner, you can stop for a nightcap at the handsome B.B.R. ("Bar Below Rye").
