Grassroots & Vine, Fort Thomas' newest business held a soft opening last night their newly renovated space at 1011 S. Fort Thomas Avenue.
They open to the public Saturday, July 21.
Owners Barb and Chuck Thomas hosted around 150 people last night, who sampled some of the small plates and drinks available.
Grassroots & Vine is a specialty food market and restaurant which features small plates created with food from local farmers/small businesses, a bottle shop and two full service bars with an outdoor patio.
For the past 10 years, the Thomas' have been interested in gourmet market items and local offerings. As they settled in Fort Thomas and Barb opened her first business, Fort Thomas Central, their passion for local food was complimented by the concept of establishing a community meeting place. This idea evolved over time with their participation with Art Around Towne.From working with food trucks to partnering with other businesses, their full idea to highlight food and community became one central concept.
“Grassroots is an idea of going back to basics and using local producers, farmers, artisans which intertwines with community,” said Thomas. “I’ve grown to love Fort Thomas. I want to contribute more to the community while supporting it and enjoying it with families.”
