Hi everyone- were Sarah and James and we want to bring Buffalo their first taste of a 100% plant-based, all vegan restaurant. ROOT + BLOOM.
Were both buffalo natives, born and raised, and after leaving Buffalo for college and to start our careers, we returned years later after our daughter was born to find a lively and up and coming city. We hosted pop-up dinner parties all over the city and beyond throughout 2016, and they were met with such an amazing response. People gathering together as strangers and leaving as friends, sharing 6-courses together…it was truly a magical experience.
We took off on a van adventure all over the country in the spring of 2017, to expand our view of this country and taste all the inspiring vegan food that has been developing. We hope to bring a little bit of the road back to Buffalo, and share some amazing health-conscious comfort food with our hometown with an amazing menu that packs flavor and innovative concepts onto our plates.
Root + Bloom will start as a summer restaurant, opening in June of 2018. We’ve partnered with Thinking Elvish Fantasy Chocolate and we’ll be taking over the large gazebo behind their shop on Elmwood Avenue, transforming it into a a beautiful cafe. Think Granny’s eclectic kitchen, with a touch of kiscthiness, inspired by vintage plates, and whole lot of plants and soft colors. It will feature a self-serve coffee mug station (a favorite of ours) while you brunch with family or friends on the weekends, as well as a dinner menu with outside of the box dishes and old-fashioned inspired desserts turned EPIC.

We know the demand is there, we know the vegan community is begging for this…so help us get this off the ground. We are relying completely on the support of the community to raise funds for restaurant start-up accessories, decor, a
