ABOUT US

root

Purpose:  The impetus behind the Miccosukee Root Cellar is our passion for supporting local farms and providing fresh organic food to our community. We advocate for sustainability and bio-diversity and foster a gathering space to support local producers, farmers, artists and musicians. As we guide you through your experience at the restaurant we offer home-grown integrity in our staff, our food, our wine and beer selection, and our music.

Background:    The Miccosukee Root Cellar was established in 2011 as Tallahassee’s first organic farm-to-table restaurant, as a way to showcase the abundant and beautiful foods grown by our local farms.  Owner Ruben Fields’ parents run Turkey Hill Farm, a sustainable small farm on Tallahassee’s east side.  Our seasonally changing menu reflects the bounty of Turkey Hill and other small organic farms in the area.
