Spiced

The menu at RowHouse changes weekly. 

Our menus are based on the season, what's available, and of course our current cravings.  I am inspired by Kansas, by my upbringing, and by the many great women in my family who fed me all these years. You always find a taste of where I am from in my cooking.  

If you are new to RowHouse, the menu is always the same set up, meaning the number of courses.   There is always a Salad, Soup, 3 Entrees (one is always vegetarian), and 3 desserts.  We are always happy to work with dietary restrictions.

Places we've been loving and eating........
Highlights from Las Vegas March 2014.  The food scene was exceptional.  Our stay downtown brought us close to lots of local hang outs.  You can click on these links.  Three standouts...Park on Fremont - really cool looking and really delicious snacks, La Comida - downtown chic.  Awesome interior and again, the bites we tried were outstanding.  My new favorite place, delivering perfect 10's on service, and food, is a place on Carson Street also downtown - eat.   They are only open for breakfast and lunch and it reminded me of a way hipper version of a brunch spot I used to work at a million years ago in New York City.  Pancakes, Cornbeef Hash, Truffled egg sandwiches, home fried potatoes, were all outstanding.  The thing that really impressed all over Vegas with the attentiveness of the staff.  I was blown away.
We ate well in Los Angeles and Vicinity.  A couple new favorite places for me.  The Federal Bar delivered this Seared Ahi Tuna Crudo that now ranks as one of my favorite bites.  Tony's Darts Away got to me with their Vegan Chicken Wings.....I KNOW...WHAT?   But I devoured them, and this was my second lunch of the day.  Whitney and Marshal showed us around Dreamworks who also fed us well.  I can't leave out Aunt Jeanie's Chocolate Cherry cake with the Boiled Sugar Chocolate Frosting.  MMMMMMMMMMMMM.    Love to California and all the Kansas's we visit out there!  Miss them already.
