“Born in Meaford, head chef Andrew Barber has his "Roots" in Meaford and returned to the area to open this highly rated restaurant (Trip Advisor 4.5/Google Review 4.9) "Roots" has a lunch, dinner and kid's menu. Local favourites include Lemongrass Poached Halibut, Grilled NY Striploin, a Vegan Curry Bowl, and, my personal favourite a Baked Gorgonzola Dip Appetizer! "Roots" takes walk-ins, but I would recommend weekend reservations.”
