Sitting inside or on the patio, diners are able to see west to the Marquette Campus, east to Lake Michigan and north to the UWM campus. It is truly an all encompassing view. Recognizing their prime location, Roots design includes floor to ceiling windows and doors that open in the summer and expose the inner dining room to the incredible view sweeping the outdoor patio. editors' choice: Roots
