Opening in May of 2014, Rye replaces the former Italian restaurant Al Forno’s on 5th East. Owned and operated by the same folks as next doors Urban Lounge, Rye aims to support the great music venue with equally great food and drinks all day long.
The kitchen is overseen by ex-Takashi staffer Tommy Nguyen, and is an Asian-fusion styled menu – the menu below was taken from their opening week in mid-2014. General Managaer Samantha Starr comes via popular Middle Eastern restaurant Mazza too.
Even though Rye offers a full beer, wine and cocktail list, this is a restaurant space first and foremost. That means this isn’t a 21+ up place – you must order food to enjoy an adult beverage. It also means everyone can enjoy the live music and video that’s piped into the space from Urban Lounge when a show is in progress.
