Baby Kay's dark atmosphere has been completely transformed into Grassroots.
The Interior:
Walking into Grassroots' newest location in Town & Country, you pretty much would never believe it was the same space in which Baby Kay's used to operate. The previously dark, dingy Cajun joint has been completely transformed into a bright open space with a beautiful bar and large, comfy booths. Though some of the wall art verges on cheesy store-bought slices of kitschy Americana, the light green and brick walls make for a relaxing atmosphere with fast, friendly service.

The Food:
With several options from $5 to $10 on the happy hour menu, you'll likely find something that catches your eye to snack on. The Wisconsin burrata ($8) plate was an interesting take on classic Caprese flavors, with toasted bread, creamy burrata, sweet tomato jam, and peppery arugula. We quickly noticed we preferred the acidity and heat of the Louisiana hot sauce with our burrata and arugula instead of the jam, but to each his own.

Nothing says happy quite like a big piece of cheese, right?
The menu also features smoked salmon dip ($6), sliders ($7), and a charcuterie plate ($10), but we instantly were drawn to the pork-centric Piggly Wiggly ($9) sampler plate. With a few bites of barbecue baby back ribs, pork belly, and prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, there's just enough meaty goodness to go around, without completely pigging out. (Yeah, we know that was bad.) Though we weren't wild about the chewy texture of the pork belly or the very standard flavor in the barbecue sauce, it certainly wasn't a disappointing offering.
