Root (#225, 9/25/2012)
It was a long break, but made it to No. 214 in late September. Dropped in at Root (“modern American cuisine with old world flavors”) for a bit of a business lunch. I really like the place; it’s been getting a lot of positive attention, which usually turns me off, but it’s solid. I like the feel/atmosphere, pretty casual and open. I definitely need to get back there for dinner as I’m not sure lunch really gives the full effect. However, the burger I had was outstanding. I went for that instead of the fried bologna sandwich, which seems rather intriguing to me. I’ll be heading back for the scallop dinner in a cigar box that everyone is talking about.
