Around RowHouse this week...

We are not open Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.  Happy Holiday!

This has been a dramatically different year in the evolution of RowHouse.  We had major growing pains and fresh new starts.  I'm exhausted and elated equally.  Mostly I'm thankful for you our guests, my magnificent crew, and this never tiring and always welcoming house we occupy.  I always hope I can find a way to follow through with my plans of things, but it's only with the help of others that I actually make it!

I hope your season is bright, and I hope your new year is magical and filled with blessings.  I was reminded this last year that sometimes the things feared most are the most enlivening and exciting to get through.  2014 felt ALIVE!

Have a great week.   Thanks for being here!

We do have one last round of cookbooks available for purchase.  It's a great stocking stuffer and I do not anticipate another printing of them.  Someday a new one will be in the works.

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.  

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
