Along with the relatively new Del Posto 2409, Steam is the classiest of Rye's restaurants, and it is a survivor in an area of fickle patronage and high turnover. I'm not sure how long Steam has been in Rye, but it must be close to...More

Steam is a funky modern Asian eatery that offers tasty food, friendly service and a picturesque setting opposite the beach in Rye.
Our style is based around share plates and interactive dining so you can either choose a little or a lot and enjoy a range of flavors from our extensive menu. Our influences range from Japanese, Chinese, Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia and we're not afraid of a bit of spice!

Our live oyster tank is a feature of the restaurant, highlighting our focus on fresh seafood and produce. We offer selections for most dietary needs and are available for group booking and functions upon request.
