Around RowHouse this week...

Last week as a blast for us all.  A different menu each night of the week was really an adrenaline rush.  Jokingly Rusty through out the idea for us to try two menus in one night which made me shiver and excited at the same time.  Some week maybe, for now we will rest on the fun of last week.  Thank you for all voting for your favorites which as promised, are now the menu for this coming week.  

The Watermelon and cucumber salad is classicl, clean, and fresh.  This cantaloupe soup has been served every Summer since my first year and I am both happy and proud that it made it's way onto this menu.  It's always a curious and delicious treat.  We in the kitchen were pretty confident with the sweet corn risotto and figured it would win, but it was a close race with the Zucchini and Carrot "Noodles.  This seafood dish got lots of comments like, "elegant", and "enticing".  The succotash with it  of Beets and Peaches was my hands down favorite side dish.  Also happy this wacky pulled beef with French Toast made it's way on, it is so crazy good.  Desserts.....well, I had to make some calls on my own because it was so up in the air.  Personally I believe last week we had some our greatest dessert moments in RowHouse.  Since it was a toss up on the winner, we used some creative liberty in this week's finished desserts.  I think it will be a favorite too. 

Thanks for being here.   Have a great week!

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.
