The Grassroots Restaurant isn’t fancy but it is comfortable and they offer very American Comfort Food. We both like to dine at the Grassroots every now and then because they offer a great variety, the food is always tasty and technically great all the time. Another reason we like to visit is because the pies are exceptional. The Chef is famous for his Key Lime Pie and is proud to make each pie with a crazy number of maybe 30 hand squeezed fresh key limes….At this time (Sept. 2017) there are two locations of the Grassroots…..one in the Phoenix Biltmore area and the other in Scottsdale. The Biltmore area is closer for me but I wanted to try the Chef’s new Sweet Provisions Sweet Shop located next door to the Grassroots Scottsdale location so we picked that one to visit.
Today I went for the Scottish Salmon with a Side Chop Salad.
The Salmon is moist and buttery with nice grill marks. The tasty salad is filled with many textures and flavors and it’s filled with all kinds of goodies like edamame, grapes, corn, cucumbers, radish, fresh herbs and more in a champagne vinaigrette.
My husband went for the special of the day.
House prepared Pastrami Sandwich on Pretzel Bun with Cheese and Jalapeño Grits.
It’s delicious as we expected it would be. No it’s not like a Deli Pastrami Sandwich it very American on a Pretzel Roll and made with Sharp Cheddar Cheese.
It killed me not ending my meal with that amazing Key Lime Pie.
We finish and go next door to Sweet Provisions.
It smells like a sweet doughnut or sweet cupcake when you walk in.
There is candy, baked goods and house made ice creams.
Cakes, Pies, Cookies, Lemon Bars and More OH MY!
I made the most of the situation…..Ice cream for now and a lemon bar to take home for latter.
I try the Banana Walnut Ice Cream and my Husband picks his usual….the Chocolate.
Ummmmm They are BOTH Very Good!
The Banana Walnut is very creamy and natural tasting…Not too sweet and more like a natural sweet banana with toasted walnuts.
The Chocolate is rich with Chocolate Flavor. It taste just like a high quality Belgium Chocolate.
Can’t wait to try the Lemon Bar….
That was my visit to Grassroots Scottsdale and Sweet Provisions…….YUM!
