rye brooklynRye has the speakeasy trend down pat, right down to the omission of a sign to indicate the dark space as an unusually located dining destination. Chef and owner Cal Elliot comes off the success of Dumont, Dumont Burger and Dressler with this oaky restored restaurant.

The bar is well staffed and (as you'll read more about in this weeks drink category) they pour a mean old fashioned with, what else but rye. The menu offered many intriguing options. We shared oysters, house smoked sturgeon, and a meatloaf sandwich. All were very good, though the sturgeon felt a little light on the amount of fish and the sandwich (which I highly recommend as a shared dish with it's piles of crispy onion rings) was a bit too much on the sweet side.

The staff is extremely friendly and they are also open for a yummy sounding brunch which I would like to try soon.
