This past weekend, I ventured into the east village and had a life changing experience…okay I am exaggerating, but dinner at Root and Bone has been one of my favorite in the city so far. We showed up around 5:30 on a Sunday afternoon, so we were able to snag a table without making a reservation. The amazing décor was the first thing I noticed. It was so quaint, rustic and beautifully done. You feel like you are in your grandmother’s country home (if your grandma is a chic hipster with great taste)
Now the good stuff…
We started the dinner with biscuits for the table. It usually comes with two biscuits but the waiter was really nice and threw in 3 to accommodate me and my two friends (in reality I would have easily demolished all 3 by myself) The biscuits were absolutely mouth wateringly good. They were fresh out of the oven, warm, buttery and melted in my mouth. They came with a delicious savory dipping sauce that gave it the extra kick. I am a huge fan of biscuits and this one was one of the best I have ever had. For our main dishes, we ordered shrimp and grits, mac n cheese, corn and chicken pot pie. The portion sizes were enough to make you unbutton your pants at the table. Everyone unanimously loved their meals and decided it was worth the thousands of calories we had just inhaled. Our bill was around $75 for 3 people and I left feeling like I got my money’s worth.
