Around RowHouse this week...

I love how inspired I feel to cook in Spring.  I want things pure and simple.  The salad is about the Romaine.  The soup is about Dill and Tomato.  The flatbread is all about Spring Peas.  The  Mahi with Pineapple, Soy, and Cilantro is my version of a great combo I recently had at TreeHouse in Nashville.  The Worcestershire vinaigrette also a favorite from my friend Margot of Margot Cafe in Nashville and it's going to sing with the succotash.  I've been waiting to re- introduce you all to this great vegan cheesecake.  Enjoy.  Please take a look at the backyard and patios when you visit.  Everything is coming up beautifully.  Dave's hard work is really showing, he's the fellow digging around back there with the Sierra Nevada one hand and weeds in the other. 

Thanks for being here!

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.
