Fodor's Review

The joke used to be that New Orleans had a thousand restaurants with only one menu. But today you'll fine a dizzying array of culinary creativity, and nowhere pushes the boundaries further than Root. They serve, for lack of a better word, "molecular gastronomy" cuisine, the kind of food created by chefs who grew up admiring Mr. Science as much as Julia Child. The menu changes frequently but expect to find dishes like oysters topped with mustard green foam, roasted marrow

bones with "face bacon" jam, and scallops perfumed with actual Cohiba cigar smoke. A menu with plates of various sizes helps keep the cost in check. Does it always work? No. Is Root always an adventure? Yes.
