Welcome to
The Root and Soul

We’ve taken the best elements and ingredients of traditional southern cooking and added a bold flavors.  Christian Buze, known as "Chef Buzz", has honed his recipes for years, starting when he was a kid working in his grandmother’s restaurant, the famed Mrs. Whites Golden Rule cafe.  From that solid training ground, where his grandmother recognized and encouraged his talent, Chef Buzz began to try new cooking methods and bold ingredients. 

 
 
 
 

ALL THE “BUZZ” ABOUT THE ROOT AND SOUL

There’s a lot of buzz surrounding The Root and Soul, in no small part because Christian Buze - aka “Chef Buzz” - is descended from soul food royalty...his contemporary soul food...is some seriously high-ocatance stuff.
— ARIZONA REPUBLIC
Guests can expect signature, small-batch, gluten-free chicken and Belgian waffles, succulent collard greens, Food Network featured six-cheese macaroni, the “Big Catch Sandwich” – an 8-ounce catfish sandwich loaded with shrimp and spicy aioli, and much more.
— DOWNTOWN PHOENIX JOURNAL
The early standout...is Buze’s fried chicken. It’s a sharp departure from his grandmother and cousin’s recipes, served sizzling out of the skillet with a crisp crust, juicy flesh and no shortage of spice.
