The Owl House

Visiting an unfamiliar city can be a dining challenge.  Luckily I received a recommendation from a local friend and had a delicious meal at the Owl House.

The restaurant is in a house originally built in 1867.  As you approach the white building, you notice the Owl House’s warmth and charm.  The small bar area has a well stocked bar with 12 beers on tap, 20 in bottles, and a decent wine menu.  I had to wait 30 minutes for a table, but the time passed by quickly and I was comfortable sipping my glass of Pinot Noir.

The Owl House menu features lots of fresh, local ingredients.  Many of their New-American style ingredients have vegetarian and vegan options.  They also have gluten-free selections.  Even the sandwiches had fun and unique touches.  I ordered Matty’s Moustache: Warm Brie, Apple, Pear, Red Onion, Baby Arugula, Housemade Dijon on Grilled Sourdough!  It combined the comfort of a grilled cheese with healthy touches.

Rochester, New York may not be a top vacation destination, but if you’re ever in that area, stop in at the Owl House for a good meal.
