Favorite beet salad in the world. Best dessert in Williamsburg: donuts and ice-cream (it's like beignets a la mode). I love Rye. The service is amazing, the food is always incredible. Portions are pretty big, beware. The crab cassoulet is full of flavor, it's got some cajun spice and it's not full of bread. I loved the skirt steak with spinach. My boyfriend got the duck cassoulet and although I hate brussel-sprouts it still blew me away. Cheaper than Diner, Marlow & Sons, Dressler, plus it's a bigger space so you don't have to wait 45 minutes for a table, in the middle of the dining room. Great wine list with some really affordable choices. I can finally kick Roebling Tea Room to the curb, Rye's better quality, same size, nicer staff.
Pros: donuts & icecream
