Will be a guest at a group dinner next week at Rue 57. The comments seem all over the place. Anyone eaten there recently?

    Used to live around the corner from it. Their paninis are pretty good. It becomes a popular bar by night.

      imho, very mediocre. but your occasion is not about the food.

        Rue 57 food is just OK, but its a place you can always get into , and the food is fresh as the turnover is good.

        I personally LOVE Rue...I just went there a few weeks ago without reservations(for about the 15th time). Ive been there at about 9 on a saturday and it was JUST fine. You can make resies on opentable.com

          been there a couple of times of late -- not by choice, but that doesn't mean it was a prison sentence a la, say, tavern on the green. avoid the sushi. everything else has been decent. nothing really good. nothing dreadful. stick to salads, burgers and such and all will be well.
