Spirited Culinary Adventures with Natalie Bovis

At Home at Townhouse, Sherman Oaks

I often get requests from Angelenos about where to dine and drink on the “other side of the hill,” (ie: San Fernando Valley). There are actually a multitude of charming little café’s, a handful of hipster hangouts and rowdy dive bars to enjoy. However, for the contemporary diner looking for affordable, well-crafted dishes and more-than-decent drinks served up with a side of convenient parking and a late-night fare, Townhouse is your home away from home.

 

Conveniently located in the Sherman Oaks Galleria, Townhouse serves a full menu straight through from lunch until 2 o’clock in the morning! Yes, that’s right, house-made hummus, mouthwatering flatbreads topped with cheese, meats and / or veggies; arugula salad adorned with tangerines, candied pistachios, goat cheese and a tangerine oil white balsamic dressing; and dessert “tinis” – sweet treats served in martini glasses – are available for a business lunch, a casual date, and even a late-night snack after the late show at the Arclight Theater upstairs.

Townhouse also boasts a Happy Hour (4-7 pm) for after work wind-down AND a Reverse Happy Hour (11 pm – 2 am) for night owls. If you’re in the mood for a cocktail, try the Whiskey Peach or Cucumber Martini . If you’re looking for wine, you can choose from over 25 by-the-glass and 30 beers on tap.

And, although the 7000 square-foot restaurant can easily accommodate up to 250 people inside, and 40 on the patio (hello Spring!), the sexy leather banquets and booths, inviting open kitchen and sunny floor to ceiling windows provide a warm and inviting atmosphere. So much so that you may be tempted to pack up your belongings and move right in. But, we suggest that you just come visit again real soon.
