One of the many appeals for people who buy homes for sale in McKinney TX is the city’s historic downtown. This charming commercial district features more than 100 unique shops including art galleries, furniture stores, antique, gift and home décor shops, and apparel boutiques for your shopping pleasure. More than a dozen unique restaurants are located downtown as well, including McKinney’s newest American bistro: rye. craft food and drink.
Inspired by McKinney’s historic streets and buildings, chef/owner Jeff Qualls opened Rye in November, 2015. The master-trained chef previously opened Poppy’s Garden Café in downtown McKinney, as well as McKinney’s premier golf facility, the PGA Tour’s TPC Ranch, alongside Dallas’ chef restauranteur Brian Lusher. Qualls said his desire with Rye is to, “extend uncommon excellence and hospitality to guests by building individual relationships and customizing each and every experience.”
Rye is located at 111 W. Virginia Parkway, in the historic former law office of James Throckmorton, governor of Texas from 1866-1867. The restaurant has received rave reviews on both Yelp and TripAdvisor, with customers saying the bistro is, “A must stop for visitors and locals to McKinney,” and “Hands down my favorite restaurant when I work in the Dallas area.”
The lunch and dinner menus feature such items as Dr. Pepper braised pork belly, coriander roasted snapper, and bucatini carbonara with a duck fat poached egg. The restaurant also serves Sunday brunch, with menu items including a bacon and Nutella short stack, huevos con sofritos, and a rotating chalkboard menu that features seasonal items from local farms, as well as specialty cocktails.
The restaurant serves lunch and dinner, Tuesday through Saturday, and brunch on Sundays. Rye is also available for private events and catering.

Named the number one best place to live in America by Money Magazine in 2014, the city is home to excellent schools, beautiful natural parks and open spaces, plentiful job opportunities and affordable, diverse housing options.
