Roots Steakhouse coming to Ridgewood, NJ
Roots Steakhouse will be opening in Ridgewood -- in the space where the nightclub -- Blend -- used to be.
Unless my group of friends has a particular hankering to try Roots out of curiosity....we probably will not make it there. We're happy with The River Palm Terrace.
The Ridgewood Patch article seemed to indicate the restaurant won't open until the Fall, so not much to really think about for me.
We don't need another steak house in Bergen.
However Harvest Group, owner of Roots, should consider a restaurant of the ilk of others that they run, 3 West (Basking Ridge) or Tabor Road (Morris Plains). These are two wonderful restaurants that I have enjoyed several times. I would go more often if they were closer to me.
These are beautifully-decorated places that have really good food. A very enjoyable experience to dine at them. Wish Harvest would do a place like these 2, not a steak place.
With River Palm a few miles away and the recent opening of Capital Grill also right in that area. I would have prefered something else go in that space.
