The Lower Greenville neighborhood continues to grow with more dinner date and special occasion spots! Next up: Rye, from the same group behind the swanky cocktail lounge Apothecary, which sits next door and opened a few weeks back!

The restaurant is already well established in McKinney and is known for its locally-sourced menu, unique craft cocktails, and presentations. The Dallas location opened recently and is a must-visit for a special occasion, date night, or girls night! The space is cozy, yet lively, with a beautiful wall with antique mirrors and plants.
Don’t be intimidated by the menu or the interesting ingredients (like popcorn with elote). The servers are very knowledgable and can explain it all at the dinner table! We seriously can’t get over the meal we had and its presentation.
Begin your experience with “amuse me” small plates, including rabbit ravioli and the infamous Icelandic Hot Dog, which was maybe the best thing we’ve ever had! For dinner, find an extensive menu with all sorts of fresh flavors! We tried a churro covered in street corn and popcorn, the pork lollipops, which are stunning and delicious, and the vegan dish, Everybody Loves Relleno!
Pair your meal with one of their 10+ signature cocktails. We opted for the Nitrogen Espresso Martini, the Somebloody To Love, which was like an Aperol spritz, and the Clearly, A Colada, which resembled a Pina Colada on the rocks! If you're looking to stick to a classic, enjoy a glass (or two) of white or red wine!
Don’t forget to save room for dessert after your delicious dinner! Find a Chicago Style crème brûlée with caramel popcorn and cheddar fritters (a must try) and French toast with peanut butter, berry-thyme compote, peanut butter cream cheese mousse, and crystalized berries.
Literally every single thing they serve is outstanding and over the top in the best way! We can’t wait to visit again and try more. Right now they’re only open for dinner but stay tuned for brunch and lunch updates. Book your table now on their website!
