Townhouse Kitchen+Bar Kicks Off with Cattle Baron's

Townhouse Kitchen + Bar will open to the public on Friday, December 16, but they held a private preview last Thursday for supporters of the Cattle Baron's.  I loved the decor; it featured warm wood-paneled walls, beautiful hardwood flooring, an alluring wine wall and floor-to-ceiling windows. It's a distinctively urban restaurant and wine bar that provides an elegant yet casual feel, ideal for lunch, dinner or after-work cocktails.

Guests showed up in their holiday best, which means there was lots of fur and sparkles.  And I finally met someone who takes more photographs than me at events - Nancy Gopez. This dynamo was working the room, flashing her camera and capturing guests dazzling smiles.  I ended up just trailing her around the space to meet everyone. Nancy, you can be a Guest Contributor for me anytime! This lady knows how to cover an event!

From the press release:
“Executive Chef Paul Niekrasz will show us his innate talent for preparing bold flavors and market-fresh ingredients with Townhouse’s uniquely designed menu offering a large selection of small plates, sandwiches, salads and entrees to suit any taste. Niekrasz has worked with Restaurants America for more than five years and was most recently the Executive Chef of Grillroom and One North Kitchen in Chicago, Illinois.

Menu stand-outs include appetizers like the lobster roll ‘sliders’ (Hawaiian style rolls, Old Bay remoulade, crispy capers, chives and apple-celery salad) and flatbread ortolano with fontina, roasted garlic, arugula, grape tomatoes and balsamic. Specialty entrees include lemon rosemary chicken with jalapeƱo hash browns and broccolini, roasted pork loin (with hazelnuts, brussel sprouts and bacon, polenta and salsa verde) and Cajun rubbed New York strip (with fried onion strings, Swiss chard and tomatoes).   For those meeting colleagues or friends for after-work drinks, Townhouse will feature a selection of hand-crafted cocktails, draft beers and wines by the glass or bottle. Townhouse will also have a wonderful happy hour Monday through Friday.”
