When restaurants state they’re ‘Family Friendly’ it usually means something along the lines of, we have high chairs and a kids’ menu.

When Roots, in East Norriton, states they’re family friendly, it means ‘How’s your mom doing?’ or ‘How was your vacation in Bermuda?’ because they know you went to Bermuda and they’re genuinely interested in whether you had a great time.

With the holidays right around the corner, now is the time, if you haven’t already, to wander into the farm-to-table, locally sourced, open kitchen taste sensation and experience for yourself just what a real family friendly restaurant is all about.

“It’s my upbringing. My mom is one of nine. I grew up in a large Sicilian family that did everything together,” said Avi Maman, Roots owner and purveyor of all things local and family. “I grew up, being one of the oldest cousins, around a lot of kids. I want to bring some of that vibe into my restaurant.”

And while some would rather not start thinking about Christmas this early, when you’re planning for an extended family you like to get a head start.

“Christmas was crazy growing up, loud, lots of people together,” Maman said. “Christmas was the holiday when we were always together.”

Roots will be doing whiskey tasking tonight (Wednesday, Nov. 21). Jim Beam will be here with flights of their whiskey with some food parings as well.  Roots will be closed on Thanskgiving Day, so, of course, they can spend time with their families.

For Christmas, there will be a party on Dec. 22. A theme is in the making, but rest assured you and your family are invited.

So do yourself a favor and come find your Roots. Your family is waiting.
