ROOT restaurant + wine bar

1206 Frankford Ave

Philadelphia, PA 19125

One of several crowd-pleasing restaurants on Fishtown's Frankfort Ave, Root seduces diners with an adventurous, 24-bottle deep wine list and European-inflected small plates. Chef Nick Kennedy, whose resume includes New York kitchens like Del Posto and Jean-Georges, puts out plates of creamy French goat cheese, seasoned toast with Italian mozzarella, and spice-rubbed lamb chops, all of which are thoughtfully paired with drinks by a knowledgeable staff.
