We went for dinner during our vacation in July to a restaurant named “Roots – The Restaurant” in Rutland, VT. The food was not bad… But I had some issues with the place overall. We ordered a Cheese platter for appetizer. The cheese was not warmed up to Room Temperature. A cold Brie at Fridge temp just does not go far in my mind. The cheese itself was good but when it is fridge cold it does not work. Neither did the blue cheese or the aged goat
cheese. An hour on the sideboard would have done these cheeses a world of good. Well, I ordered a Verdejo to go with my seared scallops main course, The seared scallops dish itself was very well done. The roasted beets were wasted on the plate. The mixed wild mushroom duxelles with shitake, maitake, oyster and woodear was very nice except for a couple of pieces of grit that managed to sneak through. Well I also had a problem with a 3Oz pour of the Verdejo at 9$ a glass. All in all it was an average experience with the value for money being on the low side.
