Around RowHouse this week...

Summer Holidays We will not be here are... 

June 28th -July 9th , back on Friday July 10th.

Saturday September 5, Labor Day Weekend. 

Before we take our Summer Holiday we have a beautiful menu.  It's been a fun week collaborating songs with Ryan for WheatStock, and menus with Forrest.  We are in a zone in the kitchen.   The coming menu is inventive, artistic, and sounds delicious.  We are taking common Summer ingredients and dishes and trying to present and prepare them with a lot of flair.  I think you'll love it!

We will keep posting pictures of the cookbook work in progress and posting to them to our Facebook page.  Please like them and share them if you feel inclined.

I'm always pretty antsy about leaving for an extended period, but we think of this old House here as a part of the family, and it's elegant old bones need a break every year too.  We are coming back Friday July 10th and Saturday the 11th with a different menu designed each of those days at the Farmer's markets.  Friday we will go to Kansas City and Lawrence.   Saturday we will shop our Topeka's Market.  The entree proteins, which will be Beef Tenderloin and Mahi Mahi, are the only pieces of the puzzles we start with.  Last year this was a blast and a super fun weekend of menus.  Have a safe and happy 4th of July week, we will all be going separate ways, but you'll find me happy at Lake Wabaunsee.  We will be back to return phone calls beginning Thursday the 9th.  All reservation calls will be returned in the order received.

Dinner at RowHouse is $43 per person.  Our Tasting menu includes a sampling of every item on our menu for the week. Please feel free to choose only one of the entrees and still enjoy the other courses.  We are also happy to make portions more "modest" if you would like.  We do our best to accommodate food allergies and dietary restrictions. 

Please check our Summer  Vacation and Holiday hours listed on the "About Us" page of this website  

When making reservations please know the house has three levels and many unique dining rooms. The main floor is handicap accessible, but the top floor and garden level do have stairs. We try to honor table and floor request but are not always able to do so because of limited space for large groups. If you have a specific table or room you'd like, please let us know when making your reservation and we will do our best to make it happen. We are contantly looking for ways to make your evening with us even better.  One of us is on staff at RowHouse Wednesday through Saturday from 2 pm to Close.  We return calls Wednesday through Saturday in the order received.  

We have a lovely winelist, Premium Liquors, awesome cocktails, and great beers.   
Wine and Alcohol cannot be brought in to the restaurant as of April 1, 2011
