Take Root is a one-of-a-kind success story: The Michelin-starred restaurant, located in Carroll Gardens, is  open only three nights a week, with a single seating per night for 12 diners. Chef Elise Kornack and her wife, Anna Hieronimus, are the lone staffers and dinners revolve around a single set menu. Thanks to Kornack’s inventive, assured cooking and Hieronimus’s warm hospitality, the restaurant has won a loyal following. In August 2015, Kornack and Hieronimus temporarily closed the restaurant, both to renovate and to enjoy some much-needed downtime. Three months later, they reopened with a fresh look and on a shoe-string budget, decorating with household objects, so they took the opportunity to really get things right. They renovated the bathroom, gave the place a fresh coat of paint, got brand-new dining-room chairs, and made the space, Kornack says, more comfortable and functional for diners. They kept the same $125-per-person tasting-menu format, but it’ll be served on new plates, made just for them, from Philidelphia’s Felt + Fat.
