Rye will celebrate the Midwestern foods that chefs Megan and Colby Garrelts grew up eating. They will pay homage to those heritage dishes that the Midwest is known for – succulent smoked pork chops, aged steaks, baby back ribs, fried chicken, vegetables just off the stove, Parker House rolls, freshly-made seasonal pies, fruit cobblers and ice box cakes to name a few. Their food at Rye will take traditional dishes and give them a chef’s point of view, while preserving the important heritage of the dish. Chefs Megan and Colby will use fresh, locally-sourced ingredients and products including produce from their family farm. The beverages served at Rye will also have a local focus with a selection of wines, spirits and beers from Missouri and Kansas. There will be an assortment of classic cocktails as well as regionally-inspired beverages such as moonshine cocktails. Many of the dishes at Rye will come in three sizes, so guests can have a taste, or enough for the whole table to share.
