Dear Rye breakfast,

The Rye breakfast from Rye

The Rye breakfast from Rye

From the geniuses who brought you Bluestem, I present to you: Rye. It’s chic. It’s classy. The decor is divine. I may or may not have had dinner there the night before this breakfast. They serve a kicking Moscow mule in gorgeous copper mugs (that require a $30 collateral. Fair. It’s a beautiful mug). Also, breakfast!

This meal sounded simple but from a restaurant that has a lovely wooden table with beautiful flowers and morning pastries delicately arranged in the center of the room, I knew it would be fabulous. And it was. Spending any more time describing it might do it injustice.
