ROOT 174

Root 174 on Urbanspoon


  1. This is a nice quaint restaurant in Regent Square, located where Legume used to be. Reservations are recommended due to the size. The menu was very unique and creative. We shared a few of the appetizers - the Crispy Brussel Sprouts were very tasty, but the Bone Marrow Creme Brulee was a big hit! (I couldn't bring myself to test it out). I had the Falafel dish and it was very good! The drinks were also very unique - I had some concotion of whiskey, ginger bear, cilantro and jalapeno. Interesting! I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

  2. Definitely would call this a foodie's restaurant. The menu is creative and while some of the combos sound odd it works. I enjoyed the bone marrow creme and brussel sprout appetizers. The mussels were very fishy tasting. I had the gnocchi with braise beef tongue and it was excellent. Overall I as surprised that the menu so heavy--seemed more like a winter menu (gnocchi, meatloaf and port w/ sauerkraut) seemed heavy for June. Dessserts were excellent. The bar is limited to specialty cocktails, a few beers (but they ran out of one) and a 10 bottle wine list.
