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 Sign up for Big Bites here and we promise we won't send you a bunch of spam.
