ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM-TV) – Rye Bar and Restaurant on Davis Street in Elmira held its soft-opening Tuesday night. A reservation was required for guests looking to be the first to sample Rye’s fresh new fare and taste some of New York’s best rye whiskey.
Rye is the re-establishment of the Irish Pub Horigan’s. Charlie Hunter who purchased the old pub spent months working to bring revival to this popular local spot.
