The chefs at this chic restaurant tap local purveyors and shop for organic ingredients at farmers' markets before deciding on the day's menu. Depending on the season, you might feast on boar sausage and other house-cured meats, swordfish or Santa Maria–style tri-tip grilled over an oak fire, or smoky lamb shank served with yogurt and harissa. The well-informed wait staff can recommend regional wines from the restaurant's 1,800-bottle selection. Root 246's gorgeous design
incorporates wood, stone, tempered glass, and leather elements in several distinct areas, including the slick dining room, a more casual bar with sofas and chairs, and a hip lounge.
