Description
Cal Elliott's Rye is at heart a classic neighborhood restaurant. Rye's casual elegance offers something excellent for everyone, from an intimate dining experience to a festive group feast. Rye embodies Brooklyn's living and breathing history - a poignant example of how both past and present continue to coexist harmoniously on Williamsburg's south side. Rye, free from outside investors, remains true to the DIY spirit and history of the Brooklyn neighborhood in which it resides.
