brick house kitchen
1 E. Center St. STE 160
Hours: Monday-Saturday 11:00am-3:00pm
Their entire menu and kitchen are gluten-free. That is very good news for the growing number of people diagnosed with Celiac disease, gluten intolerance, or a wheat allergy. They feature ingredients produced by local farmers as often as they can. Executive Chef and owner, David Lewis, changes the menu seasonally.
I loved how the dining room overlooked the square. Liz and I were there just after noon and before our food arrived there was great people watching as the farmer’s market was winding down. The interior looked and felt like a friend’s kitchen who also happens to be a chef that makes delicious and fresh gluten-free food. The spring rolls were pretty and tasted incredibly fresh. I wanted to lick the cilantro, lime and ginger dipping sauce right out of the ramekin. It was really that good. I also had the Smoked Shiitake Ricotta Torta. The menu description: Our handcrafted ricotta baked with house-smoked Sweden Creek Farm shiitakes and topped with local vegetables in a green tomato and basil sauce, served with roasted potatoes. There was an option to add bacon. I did. It was a dish that was completely full of flavor. I loved the way the smoked shiitakes and the ricotta tasted together. They really complemented each other. Brick House Kitchen is a place that everything on the menu tastes and looks amazing. I look forward to returning.

Brick House Kitchen is one of the best restaurants in Fayetteville and once you eat there you will know why. It took us quite a while to decide which dish we wanted most (everything sounded fabulous). I finally decided on the special, a savory basil cheesecake with a ratatouille of local veggies like squash, eggplant, tomatoes, and purple onion. The creamy cheesecake had a nut crust which gave the dish a nice balance in texture. Perfectly caramelized veggies compliment the tanginess of the cheesecake making it a very composed dish. I would recommend this as an appetizer or light entrée because I was still a little hungry so I proceeded to “help” Patricia with her plate. Another plus to this establishment is that their entire facility is gluten free. They also utilize meat and veggies from local farmers. That being said I was very pleased to see that their prices were reasonable when considering that they supply local, fresh and expertly prepared dishes. I will definitely be going back to try their Roasted Vegetable in Miso or maybe the Pulled Pork Platter or I might have the Tikka Masala, still haven’t decided yet.
