Root restaurant + wine bar is a hot new spot in the fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. The Grape Sally team took a night to explore and ended up spending a couple hours in this trendy, sexy restaurant. The vibe was everything we’ve come to expect from a Starr place, which makes sense, since the former director of Starr Restaurant Org. Greg Root is the owner and operator. Unique well thought out details in both the retro inspired decor and Spanish, American, Italian menu made for an atmosphere that was relaxed yet classy. We loved the floor to ceiling windows that allowed us to watch Frankford Ave. bustle as the day slowly turned to night.
Tip: order the warm olives, trust us
