Around RowHouse this week...

The Summer time BBQ idea menu is our 9th.  WOW, can you believe it?  I feel more inspired each day.  We take some days off over the Summer so please take a look at our posted Holiday schedules below.  It's really important to me that the House here, the kids, and I all revive and renew ourselves so that when we are here, WE ARE HERE.  This summer you'll often find us at the cabin at Lake Wabaunsee.  Lots of sun, water, and laughter.  We are working on a new cookbook from Memorial Day to Labor Day that we are calling "Splash, recipes from RowHouse at the LakeHouse."  It's going to be a nice addition to our last cookbook filled with casual cooking and delicious pictures.  I imagine like the last one, it will take a year to get to print, but we very excited about the project.  I'll keep you posted.  Enjoy the Beginning of Summer!   Take a plunge!  

We will keep posting pictures of the cookbook work in progress and posting to them to our facebook page.  Please like them and share them if you feel inclined

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
