You should know the following about us:

First, we enjoy doing things ourselves around here.

We bake our own breads, fillet our own fish, butcher and cure our own meats and press our own juices.

Second, food is our community. Our menus change daily thanks to our network of farmers, artisans, purveyors and the rye staff. We strive to include the most fresh and inspired ingredients from anywhere, every day. Trust that when you dine at RYE, our eyes and hands have met every ingredient of every bite and sip you take.

Third, everything we do is with purpose. From the moment you walk in the door to the moment you leave, we’re inviting you to experience the RYE community. We put a lot of thought into your experience so please feel free to share your thoughts and ask any questions. We love feedback—it helps us grow.


Why not invite all your friends to RYE? We have a number of options available, including a private event space and a chef’s table experience.
