Built by a local fireman in 1926 and immediately rented by a bootlegger named ‘Blackie’, this Townhouse went from Speakeasy to brothel, to bar, to family restaurant known as Vernetti’s Towhouse and back to bar again until its current incarnation, Townhouse Bar & Grill. Opened by Ellen Hope and French restaurateur Joseph LeBrun in 1990, Townhouse served up simple dishes in a rustic yet elegant space. Townhouse Bar & Grill had been Chef Ellen’s pride and joy since 2002 when she became the sole owner and operator. With 2020 came a global pandemic and the end of an era - Townhouse had to close its doors and Ellen has passed the torch onto a new restaurant group. You’ll be seeing some familiar faces and some new faces as well.
