Regularly voted the restaurant with the best view by readers, Roots, 1818 N. Hubbard St., is perched at the top of the Brewers Hill bluff. With just the right vantage point, Roots rides enough height to show off a great panoramic view of the city skyline.

Recognizing its prime location, Roots' design includes floor to ceiling windows and doors that swing open in summer to expose the interior dining room to the incredible view that sweeps out from the patio.

You'll be unsurprised, most likely, to know that editorial staff agrees and picked Roots as its choice in this category, too.
