Root & Bone


Holy fucking comfort food! Root & Bone has been a neighborhood favorite of mine & hoards of others since opening 3 years ago. Opened by two Top Chef alum formerly of Yardbird in Miami, the restaurant offers a taste of the south. The interior is casual and looks like it was built for a lifestyle Instagram account (i.e. distressed wood, white washed brick and tin ceilings). The menu will cure any hangover or fried food craving you could experience. Think flaky biscuits, creamy shrimp & grits, skillet mac n' cheese type of cravings. They have a phenomenal basket of fried chicken; unique because of its sweet tea brine and lemon dust. This food isn't just gluttony for the sake of gluttony. These are the kind of calories clearly prepared with love and are worth every heart stopping bite.
