Literally everything we had was delicious, you can't go wrong with any of the menu items.
Another great addition from RMD! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable; as well as very accomodating. Great staff, great food, great drinks; it's basically the perfect ambiance.
It's not every day that I leave a restaurant trying to figure out how quickly I can find and excuse to go back, but I'm already jonesin' for more Rustic Root.
