Root Hill Burger In Gowanus To Open Tonight

Root Hill Café at the corner of 4th Avenue and Carroll Street above and
the new Root Hill Burger just a few doors down on the same block.
Root Hill Burger on 4th Avenue in Gowanus will be opening its doors for the first time tonight. The new eatery is an offshoot of Root Hill Café, at 262 4th Avenue on the same block.

Stephen Kelley, one of the owners, invited me in for a peek. Obviously, there were still some last minute details to take care off before the launch, but the bright, simple decor is quite inviting and reflects the '60's and 70s nostalgia' Kelley and his partners were going for.  Local artist Lourdes Sanchez contributed the black on white mural on one of the walls in the seating area.

When the weather is warmer, patrons will be able to enjoy their burgers outside in a large back yard.

The menu for Root Hill Burger was designed by chef Cali Rivera, who previously worked at Seersucker, Prune and Gramercy Tavern.

For non-meat eaters, the menu will include two vegetarian burgers.
