Root Baking Co. becomes Ponce City Market’s newest dinner option. The bakery and cafe, owned by Chris Wilkins and Nicole Lewis, previously offered only a limited, all-day menu of light bites and sandwiches throughout the day. Root Baking now serves a separate dinner menu, Monday through Saturday, and is awaiting its liquor license in order to sell beer and wine, too.

Dishes on the dinner menu include a lamb terrine with beets, dates, and pistachios, a roasted broccoli and cheddar cheese soup topped with Aleppo peppers served in a bread bowl, and Za’atar roasted chicken thigh with chickpea stew, rice, pickled turmeric, and walnut salsa. Chef Matt Palmerlee will continue to expand the dinner offerings over the next few months.

Take a look at the menu:

Wilkins and Lewis plan to offer bread baking classes beginning in January, starting with a bread 101 course. Participants will learn the basics from how to create a starter to baking the perfect loaf. The class is $75 per person and will be held on Wednesday, January 9 and January 23 at 6 p.m.

The once Charleston-based bakery and its cafe is located on the second floor of Ponce City Market’s central food hall, near The Mercury.

Breakfast: 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., Monday - Saturday; Lunch: 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday - Saturday; Dinner: 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Monday - Wednesday and 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., Thursday - Saturday; All-day menu Sunday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
