Rustic Root showcases a dynamic menu of rustic American cuisine with a spotlight on house-made ingredients. We are dedicated to serving food that is rooted in tradition, yet has a modern and creative flare. And our creativity doesn’t just stop at the plate! Our craft cocktails have a classic background with a tasty twist…building on drink recipes of the past and shaking them up into something deliciously fresh.
Both our food and drink menus feature high-quality ingredients that transform simple, American favorites into flavorful, unexpected, and seasonally-infused dishes and cocktails!
Our craft cocktail program was thoughtfully designed by notable mixologist, Garth Flood. We believe tradition should be upheld and the craft of timeless cocktails deserves to be respected. We stay true to old favorites, following original recipes, down to their respective glassware. Each drink is paired with a unique garnish meant to compliment each cocktail and pay homage to its intended flavor. For shot lovers, we’ve created shooter versions of the classics you crave.
