Enjoy A Meal At The Barrow House

Tomahawk Steak with Country Potatoes
The neighborhood around Van Houten Avenue in Clifton might not look like farmland anymore, but an old farmhouse still stands at the end of the road. That’s where The Barrow House now operates, and this welcoming restaurant serves American farm fare and more, so plan your visit!

Drop in for Dinner

Before your dinner arrives, you can get started with a palate-piquing appetizer. Consider something for the whole table, like the sharable wings, which could be coated in buffalo sauce, garlic soy, or even a bold espresso barbecue sauce. Don’t overlook the salads, with options like the Thai Cobb with piquillo peppers, eggs, carrots, bacon, and peanuts in a miso-ginger vinaigrette. Handheld options include sandwiches and burgers like the Barrow Burger with bacon, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, and crispy onions with their special sauce. There’s also a selection of tacos with fillings like the wonderfully tender short rib or vegetarian fried cauliflower. For your entrée, The Barrow House offers options like chicken Milanese with confit tomatoes, or a curry quinoa bowl with bell peppers and chickpeas. You might also enjoy the crispy skin salmon with its leek vinaigrette and fava bean puree, or the filet mignon with lemon-rosemary butter.

Come Back for Brunch

If you’re out on the weekend and stop by The Barrow House between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., you can enjoy their appetizing brunch menu.  The crispy cauliflower comes with chipotle aioli, lime, cilantro, and radish, while the baked mac and cheese features both gouda and cheddar. If you want a quick tour of Mediterranean flavors, go with the Mediterranean platter with its chickpea salad, local pita, harissa, hummus, and marinated vegetables. You’ll see brunch standards like French toast, as well as heartier fare like shakshuka, a piquant dish of eggs baked in Moroccan tomato sauce with feta and cilantro.
