Grassroots Kitchen & Tap

A kind of Houston’s-meets-neighborhood hangout, this pleasant North Scottsdale restaurant serves up American dishes put together with market vegetables, fresh meat and seafood, and ingredients like spicy tomato jam, sweet hickory sauce, and crunchy breads. Start with the creamy burrata then move on to dishes like superb broiled rainbow trout, Topher’s Braised Short Ribs, and New Orleans-inspired creations such as the shrimp po’ boy and blackened red fish. A nice listing of beer, wine, and cocktails ensure the food has good company.
