Roadhouse 29

Roadhouse 29 offers a fresh perspective on the classic American roadhouse.

The roadhouse is inspired by the swank lounges that used to line America's highways in the '50s and '60s. You can re-create those carefree days with simple food and classic cocktails in an authentic roadhouse setting.

The restaurant seats about 40, including 14 at the bar. The building went up in 1958, and it hasn't changed much since then. We gave it a good cleaning, some paint, and all new mechanicals. But 50 years later, it's still pretty much the same. No doilies, no pastels, no ferns, just an authentic and unpretentious place to relax and enjoy the evening.

Roadhouse 29 is the work of three friends, Tim Cartwright, Chris O'Meara, and Gordon Sacks. We've all been in and around the food business forever: Tim managed a bistro on Cornelia Street in New York, Gordon catered and waitered through high school and college, and Chris cooked in New York and San Francisco after graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park.
