Root Table Brings Asian Fusion and Eco-Friendliness Together

This here bit of news is from the Weekly's Big Bites e-newsletter, which comes out every Tuesday:

When the storefront next door to his Enlighten home-décor shop became

available, Kalan Intawong knew he had to jump on it. "It's always been

a dream of mine to open a restaurant," he says. Come mid-January, Root Table

(2213 N.W. Market St.) will begin serving Asian-fusion cuisine with no

shortage of interesting flavor combinations. "I designed the menu,"

Intawong tells us, "but I also have about five chefs who help me out."

They come from China, Japan, Indonesia, and America, resulting in an

eclectic menu containing dishes like the Menage à Thai--three curries

that come with a choice of meat and are served with flatbread--and

Double-Fisted Duck, which is marinated in dark beer and Chinese wine.

The plates will be small but the prices shouldn't exceed $10. Not

surprisingly, most of the furniture, made from recycled wood, reflects

the Asian-inspired eco-friendly design aesthetic Intawong has created

at Enlighten.  -- Suzie Rugh
