The New Root & Flower Is Now Open on Bridge Street

The wait is over—we’re excited to announce that Root & Flower’s Bridge Street location is officially open for business. For those who haven’t heard about our leap to Bridge Street: the new site will offer nearly three times the square footage, plus a full-size kitchen and a separate dining room available for tasting classes and private catered dinners. With a new expanded kitchen, guests can expect to see a bigger menu too; Root & Flower’s chef Matt Limbaugh is bringing back some favorites from the old space (that means meatballs!) with plenty of new shareable items, like Wagyu steak brochettes, an ever-changing selection of cheese and charcuterie platters, and full caviar service.

Does the new space mean a new concept?

Nope—the new Root & Flower’s wine and cocktail program will largely be what guests remember from the old location—with more options, thanks to expanded bar space.

“For us, it’s nothing new necessarily, we’re just excited about bringing the wine and cocktail program Root & Flower is known for to the new location,” says co-owner Jeremy Campbell. “We’ll continue to have an extensive selection of more wines by the glass that you wouldn’t see anywhere else and ones that you wouldn’t have a chance to try elsewhere.”

That includes a rotating wines-by-the-glass menu that will always have at least 25 varietals for guests to choose from.

It’s all in the details.

The new bar has undergone an extensive renovation in anticipation of the opening too, and celebrated Denver street artist Jason Garcia designed and painted a mural for the redesign. Root & Flower owners Campbell and Sam Biszantz worked with Vail’s Pierce Austin Architects and Iba Design Associates to bring their new concept to life: glamorous and comfortable, with lots of rustic touches, color, and textures.

“I’m excited about all of the color! When was the last time you saw the color pink or turquoise in a mountain town establishment?” says Biszantz of the new aesthetic. “I also love that we brought over some elements from our old space, like the black and white photos from the bathroom are now a gallery wall in the front entry way.”

The new Root & Flower opened this week and is open for business from 2 p.m. til midnight or later daily—although, if you miss their old space, you can still stop by Two Arrows Coffee on Wall Street for gourmet pulls of espresso and craft cocktails daily. 288 Bridge Street C-4, Vail Village; 970-470-4189,
