Root And Bloom

Root and Bloom
Buffalo, NY

ROOT & BLOOM really got it’s start in 2016 when we launched a small mother food company and pop up plant-based restaurant in Buffalo out of a small commercial kitchen space in the heart of Elmwood village.

In a fully converted cargo van that we lived in for a year, we gathered our ideas and recipes. Attached to some of our favorite spots, in our favorite states, our menu is ‘us’ and our experiences. Our restaurant has a west coast vibe, paired with east coast comfort, just like our family.

So, ROOT & BLOOM was born. We were heading back to our roots to make something bloom, just like our ingredients are rooted in the earth and bloom into something wild and perfect.

We promise to bring you food that is 100% plant-based, free of processed ingredients, as local and organic as we can source, and won’t leave you craving something more on your plate. Well ok, maybe you will want seconds or dessert.
