Roots Bistro Gourmand
Roots Bistro Gourmand describes themselves as a BISTRONOMIC RESTAURANT. They specialize in contemporary French cuisine. They're terming of bistronomic juxtaposes quality cuisine with humor and accessibility. Though high end, they do away with old world dress code, white table cloths, and tuxedoed servers. Instead, they replace these worn out ways with a lively and relaxed atmosphere. This eatery is a new way of doing things opened by young chefs with the best training.
The Trattoria shares its own version of Italian American Cuisine. They pride themselves in sourcing the finest and freshest ingredients on the market and prepare them with Italian sensibility. The food is rustic and satisfying to the soul. The atmosphere here is relaxed and you can feel comfortable to come as you are and eat and drink what you wish. It's this kind of hospitality that keeps bringing people back to The Trattoria. Stu-spivack Flickr Image Credit
