Fine Dining Welcomes You Home: The House



Fall and winter remind us of home and unfortunately for some of us, home is more than just a cab ride away. In a recent visit to The House, a renovated 1854 carriage house, members of the DOWNTOWN team were able to sample signature American cuisine with a fine dining twist. Chef Sean Olnowich manages to bring unique and dynamic flavors to dishes we already know and love. It was love at first bite. From the Fingerling Potatoes to Brussel Sprouts topped with bacon bits, all the way through the main course of Truffle Mac & Cheese and Hudson Valley Pastured Chicken, everything reminded us of grandmother’s cooking. We will never forget about the Apple Pie Tartlet with Cinnamon and Vanilla Ice Cream.

But it’s not just the food at The House that makes you feel at home, it’s also the brick and mortar atmosphere. The House would blend in effortlessly with any of the townhouses located in Gramercy Park. The decor and ambiance makes you feel cozy and welcomed, almost the way mom would.

With its gorgeous fireplace, warm staff, and delicious meals, The House has successfully mastered the experience of going out for dinner. Its greatest triumph? Making you feel right at home.
