The whole team at Eat Drink Bristol Fashion were delighted by the news that Root has been awarded a Bib Gourmand by Michelin, a year after opening.
Founded in the summer of 2017 by Michelin starred chef Josh Eggleton, Amelia Twine and the Eat Drink Bristol Fashion team; Root is an innovative vegetable-centric hub with head chef Rob Howell at the helm, former head chef at The Pony & Trap, and Meg Oakley as General Manager.
Supported by the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA), Root’s menu boasts stellar seasonal small plates which are primarily vegetarian, with meat and fish on the side. Located at the heart of Bristol’s Wapping Wharf, Root’s ethos reflects Josh and his team’s philosophy of eating more vegetables and less meat and promoting that fact through demonstrating what can be achieved with great British vegetables. Future plans for Root include a monthly Sunday roast menu and a chef’s kitchen menu.
Josh comments; “I couldn’t be more pleased, we’ve been open for just one year and what a turnaround from the Chicken Shed. This award has reaffirmed what a great decision it was to open Root and it’s all down to Rob and Meg, Root is their restaurant and they have both worked incredibly hard, I couldn’t be more proud of them and the team.”
