Faces of Arkansas: The Face of Fine Dining, Roots Restaurant
Roots Restaurant is a modern fine dining establishment highlighting cuisine from both of the owners’ Southern and Ecuadorian cultures. The Lowe family believes in empowering the local community by sourcing their product as much as they can from farmers around the region, always taking into consideration the seasonality of their product. Roots Restaurant’s menu changes completely every three months, according to season.
Paula and Karl Lowe are a husband and wife team that have a passion for what they do.
“Being two chefs in house with different backgrounds helps us complement each other in every menu we develop and as a company itself,” they explain. “Our diversity is a big part of what makes us special. Our slogan sums it up best: ‘Kitchen, Culture, Community.’”
Showcasing cuisine from two very different backgrounds has helped Roots Restaurant become what it is today.
“We are very proud of partnering with farmers, as this insurance is the best product we can get and empowers our community by sourcing products from local farmers,” the owners say. “Respecting seasonality is very important for us. The impact on sourcing only seasonal product is huge as a restaurant, from produce to fish and shellfish. This is why our menu changes completely with every season.”
Roots Restaurant was founded in spring 2019, fulfilling the culinary dreams of the Lowes.
