What's on the menu? "Updated comfort food with an adventurous global twist," the Rack & Rye website promises. "The cuisine pays homage to foods that bring back memories of happy childhood; foods that are cheesy, warm, gooey and crispy. It is big food with big flavor."
That translates into Spam fries, meatloaf sliders, and chicken and waffles.
After this grand-opening weekend, Rack & Rye will be serving lunch and dinner Monday-Saturday (closed Sunday), with very expansive hours: 11 a.m. to 1 a.m.
