Know This Dinner in Your Home take-home meal kits require minimal preparation with a big pay-off.

Last year was supposed to be one of renewal for Deane House. After being closed for the latter part of 2019 due to a flood, the historic house in Inglewood reopened with a refreshed concept and menu … and then COVID hit. But proprietor Sal Howell has proven herself to be extremely resilient and quickly introduced meal packages to let customers enjoy the menu at home. Both the take-home and dine-in menus have upscale comfort food flair, marked by the restaurant’s impeccable attention to detail and use of high-quality, locally sourced ingredients. Despite two years of terrible luck, Deane House is rising above with both its food and service and is ready for another renewal in 2021.
