Rye, a craft American restaurant founded in McKinney, is opening Wednesday in our neighborhood.
The brand already made a debut in Lowest Greenville with Apothecary, a cocktail lounge that’s just next door to the new restaurant.
Rye, located at 1920 Greenville Ave., will offer a menu similar to the McKinney location but with a few exclusive options. For example, there’s the blue cheesecake. It has Danish blue cheese, pecans, scallions, grilled mushrooms, wild arugula, brandied cherry gastrique and house lavash crackers.
One item that’s available at both locations is the $15 duroc pork belly lollipops: burnt orange and bourbon-braised pork belly with garlic-wilted rainbow chard and burnt orange juice. The pork is shaped like a disc and skewered, emulating a lollipop. It was the first dish head chef Taylor Rause and owner and creative director Tanner Agar put on the menu.
Rye will open Aug. 25. Dinner will be served Wednesday-Sunday, but brunch and lunch will be added later.
