Bringing Asian flair and American gusto to traditional European dishes, Rue 57’s menu offers something for everyone. Whether joining us for Eggs Florentine and cafe au lait in the morning, stopping in for sushi on your lunch break, or bringing a dinner date for Duck ala Orange and Bread Pudding, a transporting dining experience awaits.
A true anomaly amongst upscale New York restaurants: we serve breakfast. For the traditional at heart, scrambled eggs and toast is always an option. For the uncompromising epicure, begin your day with a frothy cappuccino, poached eggs with rich Bernaise sauce, or warm apple crepes and a shot of espresso.
Though Asian flavors accent many of our dishes, our brunch offerings are unabashedly French. Chat the morning away with a friend, or entertain a business associate over Brasserie Benedict and a celebratory glass of Kir Royale. Simply elegant!
Hectic morning? Mid-day slump? A fresh vinaigrette tossed salad, succulent lobster roll and afternoon cocktail in our genial company may be just the thing you need. Featuring an impressive array of sushi specialties and appetizing Franco-American dishes, our lunch menu is bound to satisfy afternoon cravings, while our boisterous bistro atmosphere will surely lift your late-day doldrums.
Whet your appetite with a medley of delicate greens or oysters bathed in a rousing tomato-lemon confit. Accompanied by golden pommes frites, our ever-popular Steak au poivre will fill you with vigor, while a bite of pan-seared Chilean Sea Bass will surely pique your interest. If tenderness is what you crave, try Rue’s Potato Crusted Salmon with melted leeks and a glistening mushroom ragout, or our signature herb-roasted chicken drizzled in natural jus. Finish in bliss with luscious Creme Brulee or a sumptuous slice of Valhrona Chocolate Cake.
Offering a variety of only the freshest fish including tuna, yellowtail and an assortment of hamachi, our sushi menu incorporates traditional favorites as well as more novel adaptations. Distinct, gorgeously cut, delicious and fresh—even by New York standards, this is divine sushi.
A glimpse of our dessert menu, and you’ll fall to temptation. For the faint of heart, sweeten the palette with something light, something tame: an apple tart tatin with Tahitian Vanilla Ice Cream or delightful hot fudge sundae. For the wickedly decadent: Profiteroles in chocolate sauce, heavenly vanilla creme brulee, or sin of all sins: our deliciously gooey Valhrona Chocolate Cake. One taste and you’ll see what we mean. Bask in the afterglow with a tranquilizing cognac, port or spice-infused tea.
