Root 246 (restaurant review)


Solvang, CA is a beautiful and quaint Danish Village nestled in the hills above Santa Barbara. Its a spot we have often made a quick detour to when on our way up to the Bay Area. A little pink box filled with pastries, cookies and tasty morsels was never a bad idea for a road trop. Michael and I decided to go to Root 246 in Solvang after a photo shoot we had the same day at the amazing Villa Sunstone. We photographed a beautiful intimate wedding and we thought it would be fun to stay in town for dinner before heading home. As we drove down Alisal Rd in downtown Solvang, the little Danish shop windows were glowing and the picturesque village exuded a cozy warmth. As we entered the restaurant, we were pleasantly surprised to see the interior starkly contrast with the exterior as it was decorated with a clean modern design. Who says a New York vibe can’t exist in a rural Danish like country setting? We ordered Bacon Wrapped Dates to start. They were like little nuggets of suckling bacon, sweet and dripping with a delightful sticky syrup. For our entree’s I ordered a twist on a Fried Chicken dinner and Michael ordered the steak. Both were yummy! For dessert I loved the twist on a hot fudge sundae. Gourmet ice cream with marshmallow cream on top that was brûlée’d. Terrific! We had a lovely time and would definitely come back again. Thank you Root 246! Or should I say “tak?”
