It's been a while since we've been to Root at 919 Front Street in Georgetown. Matter of fact, the last time we were here was when we awarded the Beef Short Ribs the Simply Amazing Dish of the Month in December 2018.
The wait was well worth it, though. Such an awesome lunch. Our server Chris was very dutiful and pleasant. We know him from one of the sister restaurants, Caffe Piccolo.
Our go-to dishes are the tomato basil soup and the shrimp bisque. The Mussels and Frites are superb. The sauce those mussels bath in is divine.
Speaking of sauce, the chicken wings had an awesome one on them.
You'll love the shrimp and grits, too. Nice size shrimp and creamy grits, but not heavy. You can eat the whole dish and still enjoy the day.
And the crème brûlée cheesecake for dessert was a superb way to end the meal.
Take a look at the menu below and plan your next lunch soon.
Yes, we finally made it to the new restaurant Root, located at 919 Front Street in Georgetown. Very awesome ambiance and decor.
