Lady of the House is a Study in Cozy Hospitality

The interior of the restaurant was designed to conjure the aura of an intimate dinner party

Lady of the House

There aren’t many dining spots in the city with a fireplace — let alone one built with stones imported from every county in Ireland. That more than makes up for the fact that it doesn’t actually work — yet.

At Lady of the House, everything from the reclaimed wood tables to the heirloom plates to the bar stools salvaged from an old Detroit casino has been curated by Executive Chef Kate Williams to make diners feel like guests at an intimate dinner party in her home. “It should feel cozy, comfortable, and kissed by candlelight,” she says.
