VeganMoFo Day 6: Vegan date night

Welcome to Day 6 of Vegan Mofo, a month of vegan food blog posts. Since I am not a food blogger, most of my posts for Vegan Mofo will not be recipes, rather experiences I have with vegan food and sharing people, places and things that have brought me and continue to bring me amazing vegan food.

Friday nights are usually date night for us. We have several restaurants that we like to go to and I'd like to share some of them with you on Fridays during VeganMofo.

Root Down is one of our favorite places to eat. Incredible vegan food and spectacular, friendly service.

Dinner in the private dining room.

In the LoHi neighborhood just west of downtown Denver, we love Root Down for special occasions and once in a while the last-minute desire to go out to eat.

Root Down is famous for cocktails and local food. We of course love it because of the vegan food. Starting with veggie sliders and sweet potato French fries is always a good idea. If you come before 7pm you can get Happy Hour deals on cocktails and appetizers.

Then the entrees. Our most recent visit Mike ordered the Corn Risotto and I ordered the Country Fried Tofu. Both are delicious and are usually found on the menu in different forms depending on the season.

If you have read any other of my restaurant reviews, you know that service is key for us. Root Down has never disappointed. If you are down with having to apologize to wait staff for coming into the restaurant, you will LOVE Root Down.

Aside from an awesome restaurant, I also want to say how important date nights are to us. We all need time with our beloved or best friend or favorite relative.

Thanks for reading!
