IT'S ALWAYS GOOD TO GET OUT OF THE CITY TO EXPERIENCE OTHER TOWNS, NEIGHBORHOODS AND RESTAURANTS - BECAUSE THE BURBS NEED SOME LOVE TOO, RIGHT? WE VENTURED OVER TO ROCHESTER HILLS A COUPLE WEEKS BACK AND HAD THE PLEASURE OF DINING AT CHAPMAN HOUSE FOR DINNER. WE'RE HERE TO TELL YOU WHY CHAPMAN HOUSE SHOULD BE YOUR NEXT SUBURBAN DINING DESTINATION!
The space is immaculate. The restaurant is set in a 100 year old house in Rochester Hills. Each room has been converted into a dining space and literally feels like you are eating in someone's living room - like in a good way, not a creepy way. A really, freakin' nice living room. The way the house is laid out makes it perfect for an intimate date night or private dining in a large group. One of our favorite parts of the space is the grounds that it sits on. The Chapman House is located right downtown Rochester and on enough land to have a gorgeous back patio. The backyard is perfect and they use it year round with their newly adopted igloos. We are 100% going to host a girls night in one of their igloos ASAP.
Everything was fresh AF at Chapman House. They get all their ingredients from the Great Lakes Region. Their oysters were flown in fresh from the West Coast and the sauces were all homemade. They had this amazing bread and butter that was sprinkled with everything bagel seasoning aka crack. Some of the best bread and butter I've ever had. The wings were seasoned perfectly and fell off the bone. Butternut squash soup was great too. When you pop-in be sure to share a bunch of different plates.
Chapman House's bar is small but mighty. Top shelf everything and a great wine and craft beer selection. They have a super legit Happy Hour. The specials run Wednesday-Saturday, $4 for Michigan draft beer and wine pours!
Their mission is to deliver memorable dining experiences through extraordinary cuisine and engaged personal service and they are doing just that! Definitely worth the trip!
