Take Root

Couldn't really find any previous feedback in my CH search on this board.

Has anyone been recently? Looking to possibly go this spring or summer. Getting a good amount of positive feedback. Named last year by Ozersky as top 10 new restaurants in Esquire Magazine.

Then Eater had a round-up of top meals of the year and Helen Rosner wrote this:

>> I didn't think anything could top the casual brilliance of my first dinner at Take Root back in June. But I've been back twice since, and each meal was successively better. I don't know how to even put into words how much I love that restaurant: It's the anti-tasting-menu tasting menu. There's no rigmarole. There's no ostentatious, high-concept showmanship. There's no bullshit. There's just a gorgeous series of flawlessly prepared, totally exciting dishes, all beautifully plated and deeply delicious. I'd eat there every week if I could. Every day.

Eater also had an interview with Paul Liebrandt and he had this to say about what restaurants/chefs in NY he admires:

"What I see here are a lot more places that are smaller, where it's really only about the food, like Take Root."

"It's big. I loved it, great energy, great passion. And it's about the food. So that's really what is opening in New York. It's great to see people with personality really think on the plate."

Thanks CHers.
