Tongue trainers recommend lifting sandwiches and rolling over spicy sauces before showcasing toned results to siblings and court judges. Pump up your munching muscles with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of organic sandwiches and more at Roots Café on Clingman Avenue.
Roots Café's menu draws from local meat sources and organic dairies to produce flavorful cures for community-conscious cravings. Choose three flavors for the hummus trinity ($5), with options such as roasted garlic, chipotle, spinach, and black bean. A variety of breads bracket six sandwiches laden with sauces, spreads, and cheeses. Roots's own barbecue sauce runneth over the pulled pork or tempeh ($8 each), and stone-ground mustard surrounds bratwurst with sauerkraut ($7). Mouthy rebels can ransack a slew of tasty cargo packed into catfish tacos ($9), including cilantro pesto, slaw, rémoulade, salsa, and guacamole.
The café nestles within the Grey Eagle's red-brick embrace, allowing Roots's customers to enjoy a post-sandwich repose in the Grey Eagle Tavern or take in a concert in its listening room.
