Another prize for the Root means it will open for dinner

The Root Cafe
, 1500 Main St., opened by Jack and Corri Sundell in 2009 after three years of dogged planning, has stuck to its locavore promise, from the hamburgers to the beer. It's gained acclaim from beyond our borders, with magazine features and, most recently, a $25,000 prize for winning HLN TV’s “Growing America: A Journey to Success” last December.

Now, the Root has won a $150,000 Mission Main Street Grant awarded by Chase bank. A formal presentation of the check will be at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at the cafe. The restaurant was one of 20 winners in the national grant program for small businesses.

Here’s what it means for Root lovers: An expanded dining area and dinners Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, with a small menu and a special of the evening. The kitchen will get an add-on as well that will allow The Root to open a bakery and offer baking workshops as well. Jack Sundell says he hopes you’ll be adding The Root to your date-night dining “possibly this year.”
