That's the kind of place Root Down seems to be. As always, JH had a hot tip on the coolness in Denver and got the ladies to expand their horizons from the regular featured favs. You can imagine how excited I was to discover their desire to be a sustainable, local, organic joint when at all possible. That alone was enough to sell me on the digs, then I walked in and found the reused materials and uber-cool retro/contemporary/dumpster-dived decor and fell head over heals.
From the wall of colored rotary phones to the oversized, photo booth style pictures on both sides of the 50s retro bar, I was in for the ride. It is a fun, delicious place indeed. You simply MUST get over there (and take me with you).
We feasted on Hoisin Duck Confit Sliders, Veggie Burger Sliders, Organic Sweet Potato Fries with a Curry Lime Dunk, King Canyon Ranch Buffalo Sliders, Organic Beet Salad, Grilled Pork Chop, and Croissant Bread Pudding. Apparently the Margaritaville Margarita is a mind-blower and the best $3 marg in town. I choose the house red...now I know for next time.
