Fresh, Casual, Local: New American
Roast Social Kitchen is a team of culinary artisans and professional bartenders bringing creative forward-thinking craft cocktails and cuisine that are focused on “farm to table” and made from scratch practices, dedicated to everything local, and sourcing from Tyler, East Texas, and all over our great state.
We slice, dice, Roast, peel, chop, marinate, caramelize, whip, rise, blend, assemble and love every one of the beautiful things that become our Chef designed and executed menu every day! We love doing this for our customers and you are worth it.
Our Roast Social Kitchen is a place for friends, for families, and for people that care about what they are putting in their bodies. It is a sanctuary from the usual restaurants in Tyler, TX. We hand pick all of the ingredients that go onto our menu because our family eats here, our friends eat here, and we care about what goes onto their plate.
Farm To Table Explained
For some, farm to table consists of having a direct relationship between a farm and a restaurant. For others, farm to table can be as simple as using organic produce that is procured regularly at a farmers market. Regardless of how you define a farm to table restaurant, everyone agrees that it makes a huge difference. At Roast, we do everything we can to use ingredients from local farmers and ranchers because we value our local community. All of our menu items are thoughtfully prepared and joyfully shared.
The Craft Bar
Seasonal Craft Beer
We proudly serve craft beer from local brewers throughout Tyler and East Texas, as well as the great state of Texas, and renowned craft brewers throughout the USA. Enjoy a pint of cold draft beer on tap or one of the craft beers in a can. If you’re looking for something more mainstream, we have the tried and true beer favorites as well.
Rotating Wine on Tap
From our Specialty Wine to our rotating Seasonal Wine, all of them are guaranteed fresh from the 1st glass to the last. By having our wine on tap, the wine is not exposed to oxygen and since the wine is not individually bottled (bottles that would usually end up in a landfill) the carbon footprint is reduced by up to 96%. The best part of our wine on tap, is that you get great tasting wine every time.
We’re serious about high-quality craft cocktails. We’re here to make you happy, and if that means enjoying some of the best craft cocktails in Tyler, TX or some of the freshest draft beers from our rotating menu, or even some of our quality wines on tap, it is our pleasure to serve you responsibly. We invent new craft cocktails every week and in addition to our regular drink specials, we also have one of the longest happy hours in Tyler.
What’s Happening at Roast
Roast Social Kitchen starts every dish with the freshest, most local and natural whole ingredients we can find. Thoughtful American Comfort Food, to us, means that every last ingredient has been thoughtfully chosen to reflect it in its most natural state. By working directly with farms and co-ops, and sourcing organic, and unadulterated natural ingredients whenever possible, we have crafted a menu which brings you back to a time when everything was local, natural, and organic!
Scratch Kitchen Explained Whole Food Preparation Explained
You’ve probably heard this term used over and over again, and if you’re like us, you may even roll your eyes when you hear it because it gets thrown around so easily. Sure, we could say we’re a scratch kitchen, but to avoid any confusion, we want to be very clear. Our kitchen is a Whole Food Kitchen. This means our chef uses ingredients that have been processed or refined as little as possible and are free from additives or other artificial substances. Yes, we prepare everything from scratch but using the term scratch kitchen doesn’t mean what it used to. It’s really simple to explain our whole food way of life: Thoughtfully Prepared. Joyfully Shared.
