Previewing a limited menu on Sunday, this writer found the food fresh, the beer cold, the service good and the views still excellent.
The owners of the new restaurant signed a ten year deal and will pay Rye Town Park six percent of gross revenue. The commission expects a $100K payday in year one, and that amounts to about $1.6M in gross revenue for the restaurant. That's a lot of salads, burgers and beer. The operators also own and operate Barley on the Hudson in Tarrytown and The Barley House in Thornwood.
