Grassroots Kitchen and Tap
Grassroots Kitchen and Tap offers an upscale vibe alongside a family friendly atmosphere and offerings. The family-owned and operated restaurant, founded in 2011, serves up Southern-influenced American cuisine. Grassroots chef, owner and fourth-generation restaurateur Christopher Collins says of his restaurant, “It’s all about soul. A restaurant is not just a building.”
Grassroots’ menu is extensive, with sandwiches, salads, fish, cheese and vegetables platters, pork chops, and braised short ribs. Enjoy Southern shrimp and grits with gulf white shrimp, jalapeño-cheddar grits, tasso ham relish, and grilled focaccia, or sink your teeth into a delicate barbecue brisket cooked low and slow with a thin barbecue sauce, jalapeño-cheddar grits, and pork belly baked beans. We also recommend the Cajun spiced ahi tuna with tangy slaw, red onion, sriracha mayo, avocado, and a sesame bun.
The extensive kids’ menu at Grassroots in Scottsdale ensures your little ones stay happy while you enjoy your steak and cocktails with friends. Every meal is $7, but kids eat free from 3 to 6 p.m. every day. Options include a corn dog, barbecue chicken wings, and roasted chicken breast.
The tap and wine list are long and include several local brews. If you’re feeling a cocktail, Grassroots Kitchen and Tap has you covered and offers twists on the classics, such as a Grassroots Gimlet with Hendrick’s gin, basil, agave nectar, lime, and cucumber, or the Pink Cougar with Deep Eddy grapefruit vodka, chamomile-lemongrass syrup, bubbles, and a candy wedge.
Social hour is between 3 and 6 p.m. daily. First shelf spirits cost between $3 and $5, a glass of wine from a select menu costs $7, signature cocktails cost $8, and barrel-aged cocktails cost $9. Enjoy an awesome range of foods, too, including Hawaiian sweet roll sliders and smoked salmon dip.
