David Root, Chef-Owner

Chef David Root has over 45 years of experience in the food industry under his belt and has become known in the industry as a ‘restaurant fixer’.

Many restaurants have hired Root to turn the restaurant around when it was failing including turning two restaurant groups into successful farm to table operations.

Root has worked at world renowned luxury resorts, nationally famed restaurants, large restaurant corporations and has been nominated for two James Beard Awards.

David headed up kitchens around the country including Todd English’s bluezoo in Orlando, Florida and most recently he served as Executive Chef at Palo Alto Hills Golf and Country Club.

In addition to helping restaurants reinvigorate diners, David also owned and operated his own establishment prior to The Hairy Lobster. Behind the stoves at Root’s first restaurant, Desert Sage in his home town of Idaho, Root was showered with national acclaim and earned the title of Hot New Chef in America.
