Root Down information
In a converted gas station, chef Justin Cucci has undertaken one of the city’s most ambitious culinary concepts, marrying sustainable ‘field-to-fork’ practices, high-concept culinary fusions and a low-impact, energy-efficient ethos. The menu changes seasonally, but consider yourself lucky if it includes the sweet-potato falafel or hoisin-duck confit sliders.
Unlike the troupe of restaurants jumping on the sustainable bandwagon, Root Down is largely wind powered, decorated with reused and reclaimed materials, and recycles everything. It’s conceptually brilliant and one of Denver’s most thrilling dining experiences. It has a restaurant also at DIA Airport.
