Chris Parsons at Steel & Rye
Went two weeks ago and really enjoyed it. Interesting menu with snacks, apps, salads, flatbreads and mains. Tried the fried olives which went very nicely with a martini. Also had stuffed clams. Can't remember the recipe, but they were very tasty. The flatbread with smoked chicken, vinegar onions and arugala, was excellent.
They did a great job with the building. Bricks, beams, chainfalls; a real garage feel. Huge bar with lots of hightops. Very nice and knowledgable service.
We'll be going back soon. Did I mention free parking.
We went to Steel & Rye for a drink during their grand opening week. Very sleek and stylish with very much a "garage" feel (the building used to be an ambulance depot). I could have eaten a dozen helpings of the smoked chicken flatbread!
Parking is an issue, however. The lot is abysmally tiny, and on-street parking is dicey at best because the portion of the street where S&R is located opens up to a square of storefronts where there is limited on-street parking.
We're planning to return!
