Roots Restaurant and Cellar, 1818 N. Hubbard St., will serve its last meal tonight. It will reopen under new ownership and concept in the future, but details at this point have not been finalized.
The menu, which changed often and seasonally, was comprised primarily of "whole foods grown ecologically and respectfully, naturally raised meats and sashimi grade fish."
Chef /owner John Raymond and his long-time friend and organic farmer Joe Schmidt opened Roots in 2004 as the only farmer-chef owned restaurant in the state. In 2009, Raymond took over as sole owner.
