Root & Flower


288 Bridge St Ste C4, Vail
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Whether you’re looking for an après-ski Happy Hour or a full dinner, Root & Flower is about as hip as it gets in Vail Village. This wine bar is right on Bridge Street as you walk up toward the base of Vail Mountain, but it’s sort of tucked away, which makes it all the more cozy. There’s a long bar at the front of the restaurant, some metal flower light fixtures, and a comfy turquoise banquette that’s the perfect place for a cocktail or glass of wine. The glass list is pretty extensive, and it’s highly advised to start with a meat and cheese board or a dozen oysters to share. Most of the entrees are seasonal and are pretty excellent—think homemade pasta with chanterelle mushrooms or lamb brochettes with sunflower seed muhammara, pomegranate, and cipollini onions.
