Root Down restaurant ready to open at Denver International Airport

At first the idea seems contradictory: take the site-specific experience of a gas station-turned-restaurant in Denver’s trendy Lower Highland neighborhood and translate it to the corporatized environment of an international airport. “Immediately I thought there’s no way Root Down should be in an airport. Then I thought, there’s every reason it should be,” said Justin Cucci, owner and chef at Root Down. As airlines’ bottom lines continue to squeeze the luxury out of air travel, Root Down’s new location at Denver International Airport in Concourse C aims to recapture the gilded era of travel.
