Rye House, with o

01-26 Rye House
Rye House is another addition to the new "new american" roster of restaurants, featuring gastronomically intense reinterpretations of classic dishes. I didn't mind the onion tart but I prefer classic gloppy and sloppy mac n cheese to tidy fried balls. Still Rye House has that nice warm atmosphere and an interesting beer selection, enough reason to spend a long lunch catching up with an old friend. And since we shared several plates, next time I might check in advance that the old friend likes french fries on his sandwiches. Or next time I might just go back for the Pittsburgh alone.
Rye House, 11 West 17th St, NY, NY 10011 (west of Fifth Ave)

The Pittsburgh is pretty good, not as good as the real thing. It was a little too New York, but I would order it again.
