Rye House Manhattan: Insane Lunch Special (Posse)

Betcha didn’t know that there’s another Rye (House) in town that ISN’T the one in Williamsburg! Rye HOUSE is, in fact, sort of near the Union Square area of Manhattan, and is one of those gastropubs. I know what you’re thinking, ohhhhh those places are so overpriced and whatnot. But now hear this: they have really amazing lunch specials during the week. It is the following: One rather sizeable cup of soup AND a WHOLE sandwich or salad for $14. I know $14 isn’t exactly “cheap”, but for what actually getting food-wise, it’s pretty amazing. I mean, I would pay $14 just for one of their sandwiches– the pita is especially yummy, and my roommate had what looked like an amazing truffle oil grilled cheese something or other. But, the fact that the soups, which really lie somewhere between a bowl and a cup, are also very good– I recently had a Southwest chowder that was delightful– is quite remarkable. I mean, if you had a full bowl plus a sandwich at any gastro pub, it would probably at least be $20.

Also, they have more than just craft beer (though, personally, I can’t ask for anything more), but they also have cocktails and many sorts of whiskey and liquor, etc. Back to beer for a second– their menu is constantly rotating, so you won’t be able to find a menu online, and most of their stuff on tap doesn’t break upwards of $7. Not a bad place to have a work lunch or happy hour, eh? I don’t work around there, but the dearth of anything remotely palatable (speaking of, especially with the untimely demise of Zen Palate and the birth of TGI FRIDAYS in its place) in the area really has be going there and Pret, like allladatime.
