Root & Bone announces itself on E. 3rd St.
As reported last week, "Top Chef" alum Jeff McInnis and current "Top Chef" contestant Janine Boothwas are joining forces to open a restaurant called Root & Bone at the former Mama's Food Shop and Heart N' Soul on East Third Street and Avenue B... the exterior is being prepped for the new venture, which "will celebrate Southern foodways," as Food & Wine put it.
