Rye Restaurants

AURORA

60 Purchase Street, (914) 921-2333

Your meal at Aurora is marked by rustic, comforting staples, from chicken and vegetable soup to red wine-braised short ribs. Savor an expertly cooked Long Island duck breast with yellow turnips, or garganelle pasta with sweet sausage and caramelized onions. Our wood-fired pizzas consistently delight diners of all ages, as does our heavenly Tuscan bread pudding.

 

BAREBURGER

50 Purchase Street, (914) 305-4036

Ever since it opened its first location in Astoria, Queens back in 2009, Bareburger has been on a mission to serve up a variety of organic burgers. Now you can take advantage of their offerings at their new location in Rye. You’ll have your pick of beef, bison, chicken, duck, elk, turkey, wild boar, or three distinct veggie options, with endless fixings. Highly recommended is the Wiki Wiki—a wild boar patty with duck bacon, chickpea onions, and pineapple relish on a brioche bun.

FOGAMA

FRANKIE & JOHNNIE’S STEAKHOUSE

77 Purdy Street, (914) 925-3900

Decisions, decisions, decisions! At Frank & Johnny's, there are three burger options to choose from. You could always go for the Traditional Burger with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, and pickles. But then there's the Frankie Burger with melted blue cheese, applewood smoked bacon, and fried onions. And, the Johnnie’s Burger with Gruyere cheese, arugula, and sautéed onions. F & J's special steak sauce and crispy French fries complete the meal. A little insider's secret: the burgers are only listed on the lunch menu but you can get them at dinner, too, if you ask nicely!
 

GRANOLA BAR

96 Purchase Street, (914) 709-4229

"The Granola Bar brings you real food – your way. With no fryer and no stovetop, we have no choice but to prepare your food in the healthiest ways. Using the best ingredients, local & organic, we are committed to elevating casual dining. The Granola Bar prepares everything to-order and invites you to build-your-own perfect meal."

KELLY'S SEA LEVEL

413 Midland Avenue, (914) 967-0868

The place where everyone knows your name in Rye. Open late, Kelly's is set in the basement of a three-story multi family home. Jerry and Martha McGuire make the best burgers this side of the Red River...and the draft beer is always tall and cold! This is the nearest you'll get to your friendly local pub with a casual atmosphere and the best locals in any town. If you’re British and are missing Fish & Chips from home, this is the place to get them!

 

LA PANETIERE

530 Milton Road, (914) 967-8140

In this area of noisy restaurants, La Panetière offers an oasis: a hushed dining room with well-spaced tables at which diners can have and hear their own conversation. Carefully crafted, delicious food, presented with panache. For lunch, choose from the small plates (half portions from the à la carte menu) or the complete three-course lunch.

 

LE PAIN QUOTIDIEN

30 Purchase Street, (914) 967-1498

MORGANS FISH HOUSE

22 Elm Place, (914) 921-8190

Morgans Fish House is the newest addition to the Pearl Restaurant Group. Morgans is a casually upscale restaurant in a contemporary space that is warm and sophisticated. The newly transformed bar is a great place to meet for a drink or have a bite to eat, and the spacious dining room is comfortable and inviting. With all the new additions, it will be hard to decide which is the “best” table... is it the booth by the window, the captain's table, the cozy banquet, the chef's tables or a table in the wine room? Many other menu options for non-fish lovers.

 

NIKKEI OF PERU

17 Purdy Avenue, (914) 481-8880

Japanese restaurant with a Peruvian flair! New York Times Review

RAFELE

26 Purchase Street, Rye, (914) 481-8660

"After six successful years at Rafele Ristorante, his signature restaurant in the West Village, Naples-born chef Raffaele Ronca is excited to debut Rafele's first sister restaurant, Rafele Rye. This venture brings together Raffaele, who grew up in a family of butchers and has won accolades for his cooking from the James Beard Foundation and Food + Wine magazine, and Ann Mara Cacase, an owner of the New York Giants, who grew up in Rye and who, along with her 10 brothers and sisters, inherited ownership of the team from their parents, the late Wellington and Ann Mara.The featured cuisine combines classic Italian dishes with the chef's native Neapolitan influence. Warm reclaimed woods that are a fixture at the original Rafele show up here, too, in the form of ceiling beams and tables made of recycled wood from old houses and farms in the Rye area. Handsome chandeliers in the dining room and over the main bar add an amber glow to the ambience."

RYE GRILL & BAR

1 Station Plaza, (914) 967-0332

Those of you new to the area won’t be familiar with this restaurant (hidden behind Purdy Street) which closed for major renovation in 2007. Well it’s finally re-opened so go and take a look. Great for couples, families, boys’ or girls’ nights out and now on two floors. Reservations are accepted for all size parties. "Huge, but homey"- now nearly triple its previous size, with 300 seats, including a new private party room. Bar open (much) later than the kitchen!

 

RUBY’S OYSTER BAR & BISTRO

45 Purchase St, (914) 921-4166

Ruby's stylish décor showcases an authentic zinc bar from Paris, beaded chandeliers and ruby red drapes. Ideal for a romantic dinner, a business lunch, or just a fun night out. Guests dine by the loft style floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Purchase Street or at banquettes in a private corner. Some opt to eat at a table overlooking the goings on the kitchen, while others sup at the bar. It is the community table for 18, however, that is the focal point of the front dining room. Here, guests may hobnob with fellow diners or reserve the entire table.

VILLAGE SOCIAL KITCHEN + BAR

67 Purchase Street, Rye, (914) 612-4267

This popular New American-gastropub and cocktail bar opened in 2017 in Rye a much-awaited satellite of its Mount Kisco location.
