Around RowHouse this week...

The menu Aug 26 - 29 was inspired by a menu from RowHouse in 2011.  I put Forrest Wright to the task of mixing things up and taking a menu from archives and doing new tricks.  I love the results and am anxious to see to taste and see.


Our Fall Concert Series in the RowHouse Garden begins Labor Day, and then the next 2 Tuesday evenings.  We will not be serving food these nights, and it is an outdoor, bring your lawn chairs concert with a bar set up.  We are only pre-selling 40 seats per evening and are selling a series ticket at a discounted price.  The events will be from 6pm - 730pm.  Featured guests include Kelley Hunt, Judy Code with Jennifer Epps, Ryan Wills and Myself.  Tickets must be purchased in advance through the RowHouse 785 235-1700.  Ryan will be taking those reservations.  This is an exceptional gathering of Kansas born and bred Story tellers.  Don't miss out.  We will be selling same day tickets if the weather is permitting the day of the events.

Dinner at RowHouse is $43 per person.  Our Tasting menu includes a sampling of every item on our menu for the week. Please feel free to choose only one of the entrees and still enjoy the other courses.  We are also happy to make portions more "modest" if you would like.  We do our best to accommodate food allergies and dietary restrictions. 

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.   
Wine and Alcohol cannot be brought in to the restaurant as of April 1, 2011
