Roots Southern Table
When you hear the name Tiffany Derry, you know—no matter what the cuisine—you’re in for a treat. So when Roots Southern Table opened in Farmers Branch in 2021, a project nearly a decade in the making, she left no stone unturned. The Top Chef alum channels her Southern upbringing and years of culinary-fueled travel into dishes like Black Eyed Pea Hummus, My Mother's Gumbo, Duck Fat-fried Plantains, and sultry Oxtail Ragu. Sweet finishes include German Chocolate Cake and Sweet Potato Creme Brulee. All that set in a breezy, industrial-chic atmosphere with soft touches like calcitic white marble and glossy stoneware plates—what’s not to love?

A full-fledged follow-up to her quick-serve Roots Chicken Shack concept, chef Tiffany Derry’s latest project is an ode to modern Southern cuisine. The dining room is bright and airy, and the menu is filled with regional favorites dressed up with Top Chef twists. The family-style Duck Fat Fried Chicken is a must, so make that your centerpiece, and surround it with sides like Duck Fat Fried Potatoes (you can never have too much duck fat), Cast-Iron Cornbread, and Stuffed Zucchini Flowers.
