Around RowHouse this week...

This coming menu features some of our classics, but we are shedding new light on them.  Radicchio is  a curious and somewhat bitter red lettuce, but should mellow with the Roasted Onion Vinaigrette.   Carrot is always nicely married with Ginger.  We couldn't think of a better way to describe our vegetarian dish but it is somewhere between a rangoon and a tart.  Lots of pieces in the puzzle of our entrees, but definitely classic combos.  We threw the bottles in for desserts that will hopefully intoxicate our palettes.  

Have a great week, and Thanks for being here!

Our next event coming, Tuesday  October  27th, we have named, "Finding Forrest".  An 8 person, 8 course dinner, featuring the culinary wizardry of Forrest Wright.  Forrest imagines things completely outside of my realm and this is an evening to showcase more unusual proteins, methods, and styles than you've seen here during regular business.  Please call for details, this is a very limited event, but if it goes as well as I suspect, we will add more.   One table, 8 guests, $100 per/person.

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
