House Kitchen & Bar Restaurant Review

: Popular with the midweek power lunch crowd, this Capital Mall eatery has established itself as the go-to spot for upscale American dishes. Sleek, modern décor is a stark contrast to its menu, which features indulgent down-home classics as well as hearty international favorites. Appetizers include sweet corn tamale cakes with spicy green sauce and boneless breaded chicken with a sweet and spicy glaze. Sandwiches include Carolina-style pulled pork and Buffalo chicken, while entrées range from braised beef short ribs with smashed potatoes to shrimp and grits with a Cajun ragoût, and center-cut pork chop with maple pecan glaze. Take advantage of the weekday happy hour specials offered until 8 p.m.
