Rye: New Southside Restaurant By Former Dumont Chef

image c/o Eater

From Eater:

"I was told to try and keep it down a bit about this place because the kinks are not worked out yet and they wanna get it right before they get slammed. So I really can't say if the room was beautifully restored, or that the scallop dish and short rib terrine were phenomenal!!!!, and that my old fashioned was PERFECTLY made. The room is dark and gives off that old timey speakeasy in Pennsylvania vibe, but very beautiful (nearly no cheese factor). The food being turned out is refined, say a small step above Walter (similar to Dressler), but ok ok that's really all I can say."
It's at 247 South First between Roebling and Havemeyer, but we didn't tell you.


A watch that carries and shows off your Hamilton watches — this is exactly how a TechnoMarine IWC watches should be described.

TechnoMarine watches feature exemplary looks with bright and vibrant colors and excellent designs. All this makes this luxury Swiss Jaeger leCoultre watches stand apart from other Swiss Montblanc watches.

Berkshire pork slider was just like butter. Duck was rich and crisp and just fatty enough to make my head spin just a wee bit. The Old Fashioned with the signature bitters was like a gospel choir singing praise the lord from the tip of my tongue down the pipe to my heart. Can't wait until the downstairs bar opens up, it'll be a lot easier waiting for a table with a tumbler in my hand.

I just had the best meal I've had in Williamsburg at Rye. Cocktails, Duck Breast, Asparagus were all phenomenal.

The space is beautifully imagined and has the perfect ambience to match it's well thought out menu. I LOVED everything about it and am thrilled to have a new gem in the neighborhood. Places like this are truly seductive and they're what make our neighborhood stand out. Props to Rye! Welcome!

Dined there as well. The space was stark but cool. Service was okay, still getting their feet wet. I did not find the food original at all though. If I wanted this type of food I would go to Dressler or DuMont. Wburg is looking for something new, not something thats been done well already. Also its obvious this guy is using his past work place as a selling point. Smart, but be more creative man.

i ate there last night and can say it's way better than walter foods. i'm confused as to why anyone would reference wf when talking about this place. anyway, it was some damn good eats.
