Seasonal Raleigh Restaurant MenuAt RYE Bar & Southern Kitchen, come join us for modern Southern cuisine based off of our favorite family recipes and browse our whiskey and cocktail menus for a refreshing start to your experience. Start off with our "Front Porch Snacks" like our Shrimp & Crab Hush puppies and our Fried Green Tomatoes with Pimiento Cheese and Habanero Jam which are perfect for sharing or for yourself. For our lighter fare, you can start with a local spring mix salad dressed with mixed berries, North Carolina goat cheese, and a citrus vinaigrette or try the Cornbread Panzanella salad with shaved kale, sweet cornbread croutons, heirloom tomatoes, and marinated mozzarella. For our main courses, we're still keeping it local with a fork-tender, Cheerwine-braised Shortrib, our hand-cut 12oz Ribeye, and our Piedmont pulled-Pork Tacos.
Finish on a sweet note with a dessert from the kitchen and a clever cocktail shaken up by your friend behind the bar. We offer gluten free alternatives such as our chocolate torte; a decadent fudge wedge that goes great with a full-bodied whiskey. Not to mention, we have a Kentucky-style Bourbon Pecan Pie and a Crème Brulee Cheesecake that will sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Located in the vibrant atmosphere of the heart of downtown Raleigh, we are steps from the Duke Energy Performing Arts Center; perfect for dinner before the show and ready to pour you a cold one when you come back!
