What You'll Get
Cooking at home involves the risk of small burns, spilled liquids, and the advances of an oven in heat. Avoid stovetop suitors with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get locally sourced upscale comfort fare for two at Tap Root (up to a $54 total value). Today’s deal expires on 1/31/12. The dinner includes:
- Two soups of the day or wedge salads (up to a $7 value each)
- Any two entrees, including specials (up to a $20 value each)<p>
Tap Root spouts the cultures and flavors of Alaska with a steady stream of goodies from local farmers, artists, and musicians. Dining duos warm insides with helpings of the restaurant’s daily-changing soups, including chicken-dumpling-and-tomato bisque, and the dose of chlorophyll crunch with two wedge salads adorned by bacon, gorgonzola, hard-boiled egg, and blue-cheese accompaniments. Cheering crowds of teeth gather for tastes of organic, free-range proteins, such as Tap Root burgers ensconced in nests of onion frites, or the hot steak burrito, which delivers a one-two punch of protein and veggies with fillings of beef, black beans, fresh lettuce, tomato, and onions. Herbivores twirl tines into plates of Robby Grasso’s pasta with house-made pesto, sun-dried tomatoes, and roasted garlic, or dive into the open-faced Bride of Girdwood veggie sandwich with house-made aioli.
In addition to filling breadbaskets until 2 a.m., Tap Root treats eardrums to live music seven nights a week. Visitors can float through clouds of jazz jams on Mondays or showcase their best birdcalls at Tuesday’s open mic, which Anchorage Press readers deemed the Best Open Mic in 2010. Artists from across the region garnish the walls with eye-nourishing paintings and photography.

About Tap Root Public House
After earning accolades for their dinner menu, the minds behind Tap Root Public House realized that there's more to life the just the last meal of the day. Now home to breakfast and lunch menus, the restaurant quells rumbling stomachs with dishes constructed from organic, free-range proteins and fresh Alaskan produce. A full juice bar and bloody mary bar join 22 local, handcrafted brews, a number of locally produced meads, and 40 different bourbons to form a formidable drink lineup. The restaurant lures in diners at all hours of the day; happy hour specials set the stage for post-work unwinding, and a late-night menu refuels wayfaring party-goers until 2.a.m. Local tunes from live bands fill the interior seven days a week, and Tap Root showcases local art on the first Friday of every month, which is the only day artists are allowed to go outside.
