Bartenders T. Cole Newton and Christine Jeanine Nielsen IN at Root Squared

Two local bartending heavyweights join the Root Squared team in the LGD.

Nearly a month after head mixologist Max Messier was oustedRoot Squared appears to have even more to offer New Orleans' craft cocktail scene with Todd Price reporting that two new bartending heavyweights have joined their roster: Twelve Mile Limit owner T. Cole Newton has just come on as bar manager, and former Lucky Rooster mixologist Christine Jeanine Nielsen has been added as lead bartender. Per Price:

Newton and Nielsen plan to create drinks that focus on brandies and wine-based spirits, which will complement the restaurant's strong wine program.

The upstairs cocktail lounge also serves small plates and charcuterie, and features balcony seating overlooking Magazine.
