Yuriy Kouzenkov – Operations Director/Owner & Michael Latimore – Executive Chef/Owner tell us their favorite dishes:

Yuri’s favorite dish on the menu is the Shrimp Fra Diavolo.

Chef Michael’s two favorite dishes are the Penne a la Vodka and Snapper Oregenato

“We are passionate about making people happy through ridiculously good food, and over the top service,” says Kouzenkov. “Opening just six months ago, we never expected to gain such popularity and community attention.”

Burrata creams (truffle and regular), Buffalo Mozzarella, Speck Roll

The mozzarella at Roots is made with the highest grade of Belgioioso curd.

According to wikipedia: “Burrata is a fresh Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream. The outer shell is solid mozzarella, while the inside contains stracciatella and cream, giving it an unusual, soft texture.”

Just when I thought you life couldn’t get much better, I was introduced to burrata cream. It’s everyone favorite part of burrata anyway, so why not just eat it without the firmer exterior?! You must order it, you MUST!

Organic handcrafted Creamy Yukon Gold Potato Gnocchi

Roots never uses frozen ingredients in the preparation of any of their dishes. Their house made gnocchi are always organic, their chicken is always all-natural. Just the way we like it!

Organic handcrafted Yukon Gold Potato Gnocchi with Pomodoro Sauce

Both variations of the gnocchi were very good. We didn’t mind the larger size of the gnocchi… they were like delicious little pillows.
