Root is Chef Phillip Lopez’s modern American cuisine rooted in traditional flavors and techniques. Root is located in the historic Warehouse District of New Orleans. Chef Phillip is a progressive force for new ideas in food preparation, techniques, textures, and service and his passion for the art of the meal fuels his fascination with food creativity. “To me, cooking is a form of communication, and I want to talk to my guests through each bite they take. Meals were an important part of my childhood; eating together as a family, talking about the past and the future, and food invokes those memories and helps create a new story. Root is my story.” Chef Phillip approaches his dishes with ingenuity and conviction, sourcing interesting ingredients that provide sharp, clean, and bright flavors. “I am serious about food, but it is meant to be playful. I offer my guests that ‘WOW factor’ by putting my own spin on classic favorites, while respecting the flavors of the food.” Root’s menu offers “plates” to enjoy solo or to share with others. It is divided into “Socials,” “Beginnings,” “Middles,” “Principals,” and “Endings.” Chef Phillip offers an open book for guests to write their own story through food. House-made charcuterie and sausages, including “face” bacon, hog’s head cheese, morcilla, chorizo, and merguez are featured as “Socials.” Chef Phillip’s signature dishes include Louisiana Pickled Shrimp and Shrimp Stuffed Deviled Eggs, Ménage à Foie—a special daily preparation of foie gras three ways including Phillip’s signature “Foielly Pops”—and Cohiba Smoked Scallops encrusted in chorizo dust and served with caramelized cauliflower and fennel choucroute.
