Good menu options with interesting seanal options. Love the decor with exposed original brick. Bring a sweater in summer as the air conditioner works well.

Rye restaurant is warm and comfortable. While initially a little startling, the lack of bright lighting lends to a very relaxing experience. The menu changes seasonally but there is something for everyone. I had white bean and artichoke heart soup, roasted root veggie salad and...More

Since then, he has spent time as a Kitchen Manager, Line cook in Door County, Sous Chef at Chives Restaurant for 5 years and wanting to expand his knowledge of food, took a seasonal position for the summers of 2011 and 2012 at the Harbor View Hotel & Resort on Martha's Vineyard in Edgartown, Massachusetts.
