Description: Root Down aims to connect the neighborhood to a dining experience in the same way ingredients are connected to food. There should be a seamless bond between the elements and experience, which stimulates the senses and draws people in. Root Down serves “globally influenced seasonal cuisine,” which basically means we go where inspiration leads us. We’re not tied to one style or genre—we’re hoping to create one of our own. At Root Down we pride ourselves on striving to solve the ‘Omnivore’s Dilemma.’ We have created a dining spot where all dietary needs will be accommodated, including vegetarian, vegan, raw and gluten free; also allergies or intolerances are always handled professionally by the kitchen team. Our menu has icons reflecting this philosophy, though we always request you notify your server of specific needs. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Had a lovely dinner on the covered patio. Crab and avocado tacos to start were fresh, light and tasty. My husband enjoyed the rock fish and I loved the poblano chicken. Definitely recommend!

Root Down has slipped a bit but is still one of Denver’s best.
Everything is solid — from service to drinks to food to deserts —

We dined here last week. This is a quaint little place in the Highland section of Denver. We enjoyed sitting outside in the cool evening mountain air (it is too hot & humid to do this in Charleston). I chose this place because it is locally owned; food is locally sourced; it has its own garden; it uses renewable energy. We both had a delicious meal & very good service from our waitress who was very personable.

This restaurant in LoHi has very unique and masterfully prepared dishes that have multiple layers of complex flavors. The restaurant is dedicated to using only organic and as much local fare as they can. The menu has small plates that are very original and pleasing with frequent menu changes. We had a roast beet salad with hazelnuts and goat cheese, then Colombian arepas which was corn cakes, mozzarella, poblano and pistachio pesto. We had another small plate of scallops which were incredibly prepared with quinoa, compressed melon, citrus, and greens. No room for main dish or dessert.

We stopped in for dinner after being having this restaurant out of our rotation. Wow! While there is a wide variety of menu items several fit our vegan / vegetarian parameters. The dishes were fantastic. We will get this restaurant back in our rotation.
