Our neighborhood has had new joints pop up everywhere over the past few years and trust me when I say- they are all welcome! One of the newer additions in the chain of restaurant openings is Rye House, located on Main Street in downtown Port Chester. They sum it up best in a description found on their website– “Rye House is a place for all times that draws its inspirations from old American commitments to hospitality and ingenuity.”
Rye House is fortunate enough to have Sarah, a very talented mixologist, behind the bar. Sarah’s background in the culinary arts certainly shines through when she is busy making infusions and picklings of all kinds and fresh, unique cocktails. When it comes to Sarah’s Bloody Mary, no two days deliver you the same garnish twice and I absolutely love that. Other bartenders should take note (or take a lesson) from Sarah!
The brunch scene isn’t generating the Sunday Funday crowds just yet, but I have hope. The bar staff here truly care about making great, fresh cocktails and I have had some really good ones. Plus, I can walk here (if I really needed to!) I enjoy the music they play and their brunch menu is pretty darn solid, especially the ‘Southern Benediction’ featured below…. it is as good at it looks- I promise! Word on the street is that live music is on its way too and I can’t wait! We have all the components here required for a top notch brunch experience!
