Fly Style: Root Down takes off with fresh, travel-inspired design.

Farm-to-fork cuisine served in retro-chic style—just steps from the airport security line? Leave it to Root Down to keep things interesting. Chef and restaurateur Justin Cucci’s new outpost in Denver International Airport’s Terminal C takes cues from the original Root Down (a converted gas station in LoHi) with an industrial, eclectic look that features reclaimed and repurposed materials. But for this location, Cucci and architect Ted Schultz added mod furnishings and aviation-centric accents to complement the views of real-life 747s outside.
