Roots Restaurant and Cellar
Roots Restaurant and Cellar Review
From naturally raised meats, to sashimi-grade wild-caught fish, and produce from farmer-slash-chef-owner John Raymond's own Cedarburg farm, its wholesome elements like these that keep diners coming back to their Roots. Executive chef Daniel Jacobs, a Chicago area native, promises more of the same freshest-of-fresh approach. Roots had already earned a reputation as a dinner destination, and now attracts fans to its Sunday brunch. Traditional early-day favorites have unique blends like an eggs Benedict with seared rare tuna, poached eggs, tempura nori, shitake-daikon hash and wasabi hollandaise; and the waffle Monte Cristo, made with Canadian bacon, smoked turkey and Swiss cheese, served with maple whipped cream. A tree-root motif brings a literal interpretation to the food that connects people with the earth, and views of downtown Milwaukee top things off.

We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.
We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.
Any add-ons in the area?
Thanks. Read more
