Will be a guest at a group dinner next week at Rue 57. The comments seem all over the place. Anyone eaten there recently?
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.
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
Used to live around the corner from it. Their paninis are pretty good. It becomes a popular bar by night.
