Bloodroot is closed for vacation.
We reopen for dinner on Wednesday, March 3rd, at 5:00 pm.

Come to Bloodroot and get your "to-go" order—but eat it picnic style on our patio! We have 5 tables outside and we've made sure they are spaced at least 6 feet apart!


The next time we have a beautiful day, come enjoy your food on our patio and enjoy the fresh air and view!


Remember, almost everything we are selling for take out should last for a few days, so feel free to stock up! We so much appreciate your support during this difficult time. Please share this website with your friends who may be wanting a good meal!

We are now open from 5 to 9 Tuesday through Saturday for indoor dining, outdoor dining and take out.

To order take-out over the phone, please call us between 3:00 and 5:00pm, Tuesday through Saturday. After 5:00pm we ask that you come to the restaurant to place your take-out order. We will fill it as promptly as possible!

We continue to seek and find inspiration, comfort and nourishment from the unpretentious foods that people all over the world have honed to perfection whether out of necessity or pride or both.


We've specialized in ethnic vegan and vegetarian cooking since 1977. To appropriately make use of local ingredients, our menu changes regularly to reflect the seasons.


We welcome your visit!


We're in the movies!

Douglas Tirola’s, latest documentary traces the evolution of feminism through the lives of two exceptional women, Noel and Selma, who came of age in the ’50s when women were relegated to the roles of wives and mothers. The two share a love of cooking and gardening and, in the ’70s, open Bloodroot, the first vegetarian collective restaurant and bookstore in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

Tirola affectionately chronicles the cultural shifts of the last 40 years as Noel and Selma attempt to keep Bloodroot open as an indispensable gathering spot for progressive women.

Bloodroot’s wine and beer list, like the food, has been selected for tastes that are unique and memorable. We have a small, but select cellar of organic and sustainable red and white wines at reasonable prices and a wide variety of organic beers.

"This venerable feminist restaurant prepares superb ethnic vegetarian and vegan dishes; overall it's a most unusual dining experience..." ~Zagat

Bloodroot is... "legendary."

New York Times

Hartford Courant

Fairfield County Weekly

Bloodroot is... "beloved."
