Today $15 gets you $35 worth of food and drink at Roots Restaurant, named best organic restaurant by SF Weekly. Located in the lobby of the Orchard Garden Hotel, 466 Bush St. at Grant Ave., Roots also won the ultra-competitive best restaurant award handed out by Hotel Lobby Monthly. It serves simple, tasty Mediterranean-influenced food made from locally grown produce, naturally raised meats, and sustainable seafood.
The Orchard Garden Hotel is committed to being green (it's the city's first hotel certified by the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System). Chef de cuisine Jason Gaskin's rotating menu reflects seasonally available products from local vendors. For lunch, try the Niman Ranch flatiron steak or chanterelle mushroom risotto. For dinner, the day-boat scallops or the wild mushroom tamale pie are delicious options. Pair that with wine, and you've got yourself a fantastic meal with wine.
The servers at Roots are knowledgeable, friendly, and can answer any question you have about the food or the hotel because they are required to take a seven-year training program before setting foot in the restaurant. See what all the eco-friendly fuss is about and get your Groupon.
- "Great new restaurant downtown. Wonderful seasonal flavors at reasonable prices even with an almost completely organic menu! The duck liver mousse is a must to begin with! For an entree we absolutely loved the braised duck leg with a sweet potatoe [sic] gratin. Perfect for a cold San Francisco night!" – liz r., Yelp
