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.
