Rooting around Root Down

Categories: The Dish

We're still looking for a revised opening date for Root Down, the new restaurant coming to 33rd and Osage. But in the meantime, we have two updates: Yesterday, the original opening date, they were putting in grass (!) around the former service station, which will have a great outdoor deck and garden. Come spring -- not December. 

As for the name, which a reader tagged to a Beastie Boys sample in a comment to this blog, the Beastie Boys were sampling the groundbreaking jazz album by Jimmy Smith, Root Down, released in 1972.

Here's something else we know: If we're already talking this much about the place before it opens, we can't wait to actually eat there.
