Rye House is a tavern specializing in spirits, wine and beer made in the USA. Cocktails are created with rum from Louisiana, vodka from Idaho, white whiskey from Iowa, gin from Oregon, bourbon from Kentucky (as it should be), applejack from Jersey, and rye made right on the premises. Lynnette Marrero and Jim Kearns, on the bar, learned their mixology from Julie Reiner (Snail-approved Flat Iron Lounge) and Audrey Saunders (Snail-approved Pegu Club) so you can be sure there'll be sure hands on the cocktail shaker. Snacks (they could easily be meals) follow the same regional American theme: a crayfish po' boy, a Cuban sandwich, a corn dog, Manhattan clam chowder, and fried mac 'n cheese with NY state cheddar.
