Around RowHouse this week...

September, September, September.....What does it mean to you?  It's both a time of slowing down and speeding up.  Endings and beginnings.  This month we celebrate the herbs out back.  Chives at the forefront on this menu, Basil in the background.  We will work our way through them all week by week until it's time for them to take their snooze for the year.  I am anxious for Fall even though this was a mild Summer.  I'm Happy for the change and forever grateful for one of the best Summers and seasons of my life thus far.  With every breath I love to watch Growth.

Our gallery space is open from 4pm-8pm this coming Friday, September 5, 2014.  Two doors down in the Garden level of 519 SW Van Buren.  Art by Beverly Radefeld, Antiques from Cabin Antiques, and a Garden brought to you by Mother Nature and RowHouse.  Please stop by if you have the time.

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
