Lunch: Rye House

For American classics with a modern twist, Rye House is the place.  The day I visited, there was a great lunch deal–a salad and sandwich for $15.  I got the kale caesar salad with Wisconsin “parm” and croutons.  I’d been craving kale salad, and this was the perfect green to modernize a caesar salad.  It was also a generous helping.

For my entrée, I got the roasted pork with roasted pineapple and red cabbage slaw.  I’m a fan of shredded pork, and I liked the sweetness of the pineapple.  This sandwich was a bit on the salty side for my taste.

My friend and I shared Mama’s fried mac ‘n’ cheese, a breaded ball of elbow macaroni and New York cheddar.  These were quite tasty.

My friend also got the kale salad and the truffle grilled cheese sandwich with goat gouda and fontina and a side of arugula and mushroom salad with taro root.  I got a taste of this sandwich and it was quite good.

Rye House revamps the classics like grilled cheese, mac n cheese, shredded pork and caesar salad.  But there are some things that don’t need to change–order a Coke and it comes the old-fashioned way–in a bottle.
