Roanoke law firm Glenn, Feldmann, Darby & Goodlatte took over Local Roots Restaurant in Grandin Village last night in an effort to celebrate its support of local markets and local foods.
At the start of fall and the harvest season, this was the inaugural client event at Local Roots in its new location. GFD&G paired with the Local Environmental Agricultural Project (LEAP, here), which who promoted its local foods Web portal and the efforts at the West End Community Center, open Wednesdays, and the Grandin Community Market, a Saturday event.
Law firm Managing Partner Mark Feldmann connected the firm's local roots with the venue and highlighted their involvement with LEAP. Local Roots created a drink to celebrate the occasion called "The Closing Argument" (featuring bourbon, local Basil and other goodies). Guests ate fresh trout, original pizza, and butternut squash soup.
