At The Bar with Tim Judge of Rye Grill and Bar

Our social scene columnist Pamela Baur begins a new MyRye.com feature At The Bar. Today, Pamela saddles up with a Rye stalwart, Tim Judge, a Rye Grill and Bar bartender since 1992.

Your Name: Tim Judge

Your Bar: The Rye Grill and Bar (1 Station Plaza, 967-0332)

Pamela Baur: So, How long has it been?

I’ve worked at the Rye Grill, both old and new, since May 5th 1992. I’ve also served as an opener at most of Jim Sullivan’s restaurants including Lexington Square Café (Mt. Kisco), Elm Street Oyster House (Greenwich), Heathcote Tavern (Scarsdale). Missed that Ruby’s opener though.

Tim Judge

Ah well Tim, can’t win ‘em all! And what about prior to 1992?

Everything before working at the places listed above was in New Rochelle, need I say more?

Describe your clientele – who comes to the Rye Grill Now?

The clientele stretches beyond borders, I’ve seen and heard people coming in from as far as Ridgefield, CT! The scene is much more metro than family in so far as clientele.

What’s your drink of the moment?

COSMO – (how oh so New York Metropolitan!)

Tim won’t share his exact recipe but the general version goes a little something like this: Cranberry Juice, Citron Vodka, Triple Sec and Cranberry juice/lime/sour mix and garnished with a lemon!

What about your drink of the ages?

Gin and Tonic! Classic!

Your Favorite Garnish?

I like the orange in a Blue Moon.

Tell us your favorite bartender story

Simple. I met my wife. It was a night I was closing; she was drinking Coors Light, chewing Big Red and there with friends from work. The rest is history!

Thanks Tim.

  1. WOW PAMELA- THINGS MUST BE REALLY SLOW AROUND HERE. 3 WRITE UPS ON THIS BEAST. THEY MUST BE PAYING YOU WELL FOR THIS UNWANTED PUBLICITY!

  2. Thanks for the mention Pamela. I was very excited to return to the RGB and see familiar faces and meet so many new ones as well! I’ll just add as well my favorite bartender in RYE outside the “organization” would have to be George at Frankie and Johnnies (I hope I didn’t just shoot myself in the foot!)
