R&D used to be a full restaurant with brunch and dinner service called Root, but then it closed down, brainstormed a bit, and decided to reopen as R&D doing solely what it did best the first time - cocktails (and a few small bar snacks like popcorn and whipped ricotta). It’s much better this way, and the dark space is filled with two-tops, candles, and a lot of velvet - making it one of the better places in the area to end your next date night.
