Roots Restaurant to close

Roots Restaurant and Cellar, 1818 N. Hubbard St., will serve its last meal in Milwaukee tonight.

The restaurant will reopen under new ownership and a new concept in the future, but details at this point have not been finalized, according to a report at, a media partner of BizTimes.
The Roots menu, which changed often and seasonally, was comprised primarily of “whole foods grown ecologically and respectfully, naturally raised meats and sashimi grade fish.”
Chef /owner John Raymond and his long-time friend and organic farmer Joe Schmidt opened Roots in 2004 as the only farmer-chef owned restaurant in the state. In 2009, Raymond took over as sole owner.
