As if there aren't enough reasons for CenPho folks to be doing a happy dance, add another solid restaurant option to the lineup that already includes Snooze, an A.M. Eatery, Pizzeria/Trattoria Bianco, and a brand spankin' new Whole Foods Market.
Grassroots Kitchen and Tap, the plainly delicious restaurant from fourth-generation restaurateur Christopher Collins, will open its second location on Monday in the space formerly occupied by Baby Kay's Cajun Kitchen.
The new location will offer the same menu of American dishes that diners already enjoy at the original North Scottsdale location.
That includes dishes like 85259 creamy burrata dressed with arugula, spicy tomato jam, and sea salt; New Orleans-inspired creations such as the shrimp po' boy; and nearly perfect boiled rainbow trout. Drink offerings, which includes coffee, juice, beer, and cocktails will also be the same. You can check out the complete menu on the Grassroots Kitchen website.
We recently pitted Grassroots against Aaron Chamberlin's Phoenix Public Market Cafe in a Rotisserie Chicken Rumble. See which dish came out ahead.
Grassroots Kitchen & Tap will be open from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday.
