Food at the RowHouse Grille hews to the familiar with a few exceptions. While you’d expect burgers and wings, and the more formal salmon and steaks, “lamb and lettuce,” a plate of za’atar-seasoned lamb accompanied by hummus and baba ghanouj is a surprise—one we would dearly have loved to sample if the kitchen hadn’t run out. Lentil salad, a daily special, is another uncommon offering among the pub fare, as is a New England lobster roll, which isn’t as ubiquitous around town as, say, oyster po’boys (though RowHouse Grille has those too). These items, plus a handful of entrées in the $20 range—steak frites, a braised lamb shank, pork flat-iron “steak”—suggest that the kitchen has serious ambitions, though the results are mixed. None of the dishes we tried were unacceptable, just mostly OK. Given the good-sized portions and the prices, this is mostly OK too.
