Brewhaus Gastropub If you’re in the mood for German cuisine, you don’t have to fly the 4,605 miles from Chattanooga to Germany to satisfy your hankering. With everything from schnitzel to bratwurst, Brewhaus, Chattanooga’s only gastropub, combines traditional German dishes with a local Southern twist. Located on Frazier Avenue on the Northshore, Brewhaus is an “environment with a strong emphasis on chef-driven food, paired with good ale and wine, in a casual setting.” Seating is available both inside and on the porch overlooking Coolidge Park and the Walnut Street Bridge. Even if there’s a full house, the staff at Brewhaus invites you to grab a drink at the bar, which, weather permitting, can be taken out to the front patio while you wait. If your taste buds aren’t familiar with German cuisine, entrées like the Brewhaha and the rooster schnitzel wiener art are popular choices among customers. A grilled, beer-marinated brat and a smoked sausage atop a bed of kraut that is served with German potato salad, a veggie medley,

and ale mustard, the Brewhaha is one dish you don’t want to pass up. For fans of the recent fried-egg trend, the rooster schnitzel wiener art is the classic schnitzel—but with a fried egg on top. Meat lovers aren’t the only ones who can enjoy the food at Brewhaus. For vegetarians, one option is the veggie spaetzle. In this dish, spaetzle, or German-style egg noodles, are tossed in a creamy mushroom pepper sauce with fresh steamed broccoli, carrots, and squash. The dish also includes the option of adding a veggie brat. And food isn’t the only thing Brewhaus is known for. As the name suggests, Brewhaus has a variety of both draft and bottled beer. With a menu that regularly changes, Brewhaus always offers Chattanoogans the chance to try the latest brews, and will feature new beers to try from Black Abby Brewing Company this May. In addition to their regular beer tastings every Thursday at 7 p.m., Brewhaus is participating in American Craft Beer Week, which runs from May 12-18. No matter if you’re looking to explore a taste of Germany without leaving Chattanooga, or wanting to catch up with friends and drink a nice, cold beer, Brewhaus is the place to go. The environment is a one of a kind experience filled with laughter, glasses clinking in celebration, and of course—delicious food.

beast + barrel With the newly opened Beast + Barrel on Frazier Avenue, a new restaurant genre has been created: the “Gastro Smokehouse.” That’s how the trio of owners, Ryan Chilcoat, Matt Lewis and Geoff Tarr, refer to the beautifully renovated, 220-seat eatery on the former site of the Northshore Grille. Walking in, you’re struck by the warm, elegant-butlaidback feeling created by the black and neutrals color scheme, accented by the lipstick-red original tin ceiling and a charming mural on one wall advertising “Danbury Hats, Chattanooga’s Pioneer Hat Cleaner.” Matt Lewis explains that Beast + Barrel, which joins the Hair of the Dog Pub, The Honest Pint and The Terminal Brewhouse as the fourth restaurant from the partners, is designed to maintain the tradition of locally sourced, inventive food, but in an atmosphere that’s a bit more sophisticated. “We’ve dressed it up a little— but not too much,” he says. Chef Jericho Michel, once on staff at The Terminal, is back at B+B, creating dishes such as “Crabacon Stuffed Trout,” one of the entrees for two offered on the menu, served with two family-style large sides. Caesar salad lovers should not miss the B+B version, featuring whole grilled romaine and home-prepared crostini and dressing. For a light meal, or to begin an extended one, the Butcher’s Block sampler shows off one of the highlights of the new restaurant—its own in-house charcuterie. Lewis notes charcuterie items, including bone marrow, can be ordered right off the menu. The bar at Beast + Barrel is staffed by professionals, who are all developing their own signature cocktails, including, says Lewis, “Prohibition-style drinks, such as a classic martini or an Old Fashioned,” and the drinks menu also highlights both aperitifs and digestifs. But the bar’s uniqueness is truly enhanced by its wines on tap, which can be ordered both by the glass and by the carafe. The warmer weather has already meant that diners are beginning to enjoy the outdoor patio seating looking out onto Coolidge Park. And late-night nibblers, you’re in luck: Beast + Barrel is open seven days a week from

11 a.m. until 2 a.m., with a late-night menu served until 1:30 a.m. Of course we had to ask Lewis what was new at the other three restaurants. “Hair of the Dog had a major facelift last year,” he says. “It feels even more like a classic English pub now. We kept most of the menu items that people love, but added some new pub grub. And of course we kept the selection of English staple beers and ales, along with the craft beers.” Over at the three-year-old Honest Pint, “We continue to highlight that it’s an Irish pub in a New World setting,” Lewis says. Live music happens several times a week, along with Irish beers and some outstanding food, including the popular “boxty” (Irish potato pancakes). Both pubs plan to offer extended hours and multiple screens during the upcoming World Cup. While at the very happening Terminal, the green roof garden has been renovated (“with sturdier grass,” says Lewis), and seasonal, local menu selections still rule. Lewis notes the return of pale ale popularity, and its Terminal exponent, Terminally Ale American Copper. Chattanoogans and their out-of-town friends have already shown how much they appreciate Hair of the Dog, The Honest Pint and The Terminal. With the birth of Beast + Barrel, there’s a fourth member of the family to love.

bonefish grill The Scoop A unique dining experience that takes the mystery out of seafood Bonefish Grill Hamilton Corner at the Main Entrance to Hamilton Place Mall 2115 Gunbarrel Rd (423) 892-3175 bonefishgrill.com

The ocean just entered its prime season for seafood lovers—and Bonefish Grill is celebrating this delicious occasion with one-of-a-kind entrees and specials. For a limited time only, seafood aficionados can indulge themselves with Bonefish Grill’s “Sea-lebrities.” The Lobster Stuffed Shrimp will make your mouth water and your tastebuds dance with Butterfield shrimp, mixed with a creamy lobster-andshrimp imperial stuffing, topped with a lemoncaper butter sauce. Seared and served with a cabernet mustard sauce, the Pretzel Crusted Tuna will not only satisfy your cravings, but it will also make you wonder why you aren’t eating at Bonefish Grill every day for every meal. The Misoyaki Chilean Sea Bass comes fresh off the grill and is served with a mango sauce and your choice of side dish.  These mouth-watering entrees will surely make

you thirsty, and thankfully Bonefish Grill follows a “bar-fresh” philosophy that ensures their cocktails are mixed with just-squeezed juices and topped with edible garnishes that magnify every flavor. Bonefish Grill believes in helping others, and for every Ocean Trust Tropic Heat Martini sold, they donate $1 to the ocean conservation foundation Ocean Trust. Created with homemade infused pineapple vodka, freshly muddled mango, lemon juice and a thin slice of jalapeño, this exceptional drink will delight your desires—and leave you feeling proud about your charitable donation.  If your appetite can’t withstand the wait for your entree, treat yourself to Bonefish Grill’s wildly popular Bang Bang Shrimp. This scrumptious appetizer consists of crispy shrimp tossed in a spicy, creamy sauce. Need a lift from your mid-week blues? Bang Bang Shrimp is free on

Wednesdays with the purchase of a bottle of wine.  With nearly 200 stores located across the country, Bonefish Grill has established themselves as America’s go-to place for fresh and reliable seafood. They consult with Ocean Trust and Bloomin’ Brands Seafood Advisory Council to help promote environmentally sound fishing and aquaculture. They are dedicated to responsible fishing practices and the healthy stewardship of the world’s marine resources. Even though Chattanooga is hundreds of miles away from the ocean, after biting into one of Bonefish Grill’s freshly prepared entrees, you can close your eyes and almost hear the waves from the Atlantic Ocean crashing onto the sandy shore. Every day can be a day at the beach when you decide to eat at Bonefish Grill.

Tupelo Honey Cafe

COME

SAVOR THE SEASON

Their biscuits have been described as heavenly, their pimento cheese divine. Tupelo Honey Cafe made a name for itself with its “New South” cuisine after launching in Asheville in 2000. Since opening in Chattanooga’s historic Warehouse Row in fall 2013, the restaurant has become one of the city’s go-to places for those hungry for some honest-to-goodness Southern food in a place that feels like home. Brian’s Shrimp and Goat Cheese Grits is one of the legendary Tupelo favorites as is the Shoo Grill Cheese, Have Mercy. This inventive and lavish take on the grilled cheese sandwich includes havarti and pimento cheese with caramelized onions, maple-peppered bacon, smoked ham, fried green tomatoes and fresh basil piled onto sourdough wheat bread, with a side of fresh tomato soup. “Scratch-made” is the Tupelo Honey

Cafe watchword. The restaurant dedicates an entire floor of their building to cooking and prepping everything they serve. Even the biscuits and blueberry jelly, which are provided with every meal, are made from scratch. The release of restaurant’s second cookbook earlier this year reflects its expansion beyond Asheville and into Knoxville, Greenville, Chattanooga and Charlotte. Tupelo Honey Cafe: New Southern Flavors from the Blue Ridge Mountains includes 125 recipes with mountain roots, some found in their restaurants (such as pimento cheese) and others not. The recipes, says Chef Brian Sonoskus, are easy enough for the home cook, no fancy restaurant equipment required. The cookbook is available for purchase at their Chattanooga location—along with a whole menu of tasty meals.

City Cafe

Diner

City Café, located at the Days Inn Rivergate hotel in the heart of downtown Chattanooga, is a staple in the food community. There are only a handful of places in the area that you can grab a bite to eat at 6 a.m. before an early shift, or at midnight after a late shift. Open 24 hours every single day, City Café is known for keeping their lights on for you no matter when you get hungry. Sprinkled across the walls are signed photographs of famous people, all familiar with City Café. Famous for their immeasurable selection of mile-high cakes and their never-ending menu that includes breakfast and dinner options, you’ll be able to find something that suits your taste. They even provide a delivery service if you can’t quite make it to the restaurant.

good dog sit. stay. eat. The décor is cozy, eclectic, and the colorful duct tape-covered booths are comforting on a rainy afternoon. If it’s not the creative seating, it’s definitely the BBQ veggie dog and fries that have me feeling right at home. Good Dog owner Susan Paden joins me in the laid-back hangout to chat as I indulge with the signature fries and house-made curry ketchup. Customers are happy to know that everything at Good Dog is house-made, from the sausages to the beans. The peppers in the relish are even grown in Paden’s garden. She explains, “We like to make everything as good as it can be,” adding, “We’re not serving hot dogs, we’re serving people through hot dogs.” Good Dog is definitely a memorable restaurant for locals and tourists alike, all of whom come in regularly to feast on the impressive all-day breakfast menu and even a breakfast happy hour starting at 7 a.m. It’s clear that Good Dog is more than just hot dogs; it’s an experience. “It’s Americana,” Paden explains, “Like apple pie and baseball.” The menu is incredibly accommodating, offering options for both vegetarians and vegans, who can dine on the menu’s popular “vegan fave” and the “veggie/vegan breakfast” option. In addition to this, any other menu choice can be customized with a veggie dog to please non-meat-eaters. A popular crowd favorite is the cone of frites, featuring a fun selection of meats, cheeses and top-

pings, but for the typical hot dog lover, it is easy to change the favorite menu option each week, a practice Paden is also familiar with. Currently, she says her favorite menu item is the Reuben with slaw and pickles; however, her number-one choice is the Chicago dog, which features Good Dog’s relish of serrano peppers. Paden notes the pleasure of working in a successful business in the booming city of Chattanooga. She says, “We’re all working towards the same goal, adding to the picture and creating opportunities together.” With a popular, local eatery offering breakfast, lunch and dinner options, Paden says it best with, “Good Dog is a good place to start and end.”

Voted Chattanooga’s Best Pizza! 12 • The Pulse • SPRING/SUMMER CHOW • MAY 15, 2014 • chattanoogapulse.com

One of Chattanooga’s oldest and favorite spots for a slice, Lupi’s continues to provide no-fuss, simply delicious pizza. Diners can create their perfect piece of pie with the build-your-own menu, offering a large list of meat, vegetable and cheese options to accompany homemade hand-tossed dough, house-made sauce and mozzarella cheese. Opened in 1996, Lupi’s began serving downtown when little more than the Aquarium and warehouse buildings existed there. Their long-term success may be attributed to a commitment to keeping things simple: simple menu, wholesome ingredients, great flavor yesterday, today and tomorrow. Lupi’s has been committed to using local products from the beginning, including fresh vegetables during the growing season and local flour, ground beef, ground sausage, eggs and honey yearround. And of course, almost everything is made in-house: pizza dough, sauces and even fresh mozzarella. Although Lupi’s menu is simple, it certainly does not lack variety. Customers can choose white, whole wheat or gluten-free crust and add any of the more than 40 toppings available to create their ideal pizza—whole or by the slice—or calzone. And, for those who can’t muster down one of Lupi’s behemoth-sized calzones, they now offer “minizones”, as well

as half orders of bruschetta. With the build-your-own menu style, Lupi’s is naturally vegetarian-friendly, and even vegans can appreciate a freshly made slice with the vegan white crust. And for anyone craving something a little different, Lupi’s also offers lasagna, salad, bruschetta and more— all homemade and very tasty. If the delicious pizza pie isn’t enough to draw you in, Lupi’s friendly staff and unique, quirky atmosphere—dark colors, low lighting, local art, and a disco ball—make it a great place for friends and family to gather. But don’t just take our word for it: Lupi’s has been awarded “Best of the Best” five years in a row and CityScope’s “Best Pizza” for ten years in a row. According to owner Dorris Shober, “The thing about Lupi’s is consistency—the pizza you get today, you’ll get tomorrow and the next day.” It’s always a good time for pizza. With five locations around the Chattanooga area, Lupi’s is easier than ever to visit. And don’t miss Lupi’s mobile unit at local festivals and the Chattanooga Market this summer. We’ll see you there!

bluewater grille

Located across from the Tennessee Aquarium in the heart of downtown Chattanooga is a seafood destination. Inspired by the original restaurants on the northeast coast of Florida, Bluewater Grille prides itself on having the freshest seafood in Chattanooga. But it doesn’t stop there! Bluewater Grille’s diverse menu has something for everyone, and their blend of high-quality ingredients and welcoming setting truly makes it Chattanooga’s place for casually sophisticated dining. Everything on the menu is passionately handmade with fresh ingredients. Start with an order of Tavern Shrimp. This popular appetizer, deep-fried and tossed to perfection with a creamy spicy sauce, is a great way to kick off a memorable, tasty evening. One of the top favorite entrees is the Seared Tuna. Served with julienne vegetables, the tuna is rolled in spices, pan seared and served over wasabi aioli with sweet ginger. Another popular entrée is the Lobster and Shrimp Tacos, which comes

in a crisp blue corn tortilla, wrapped with a soft flour tortilla with pepper jack cheese, lettuce, pico de gallo and a citrus sauce, served with refried beans. Though the seafood is certainly the specialty at Bluewater Grille, the menu offers a wide range of culinary classics from pasta primavera to the Bluewater Burger, all made with the finest ingredients and cooked to perfection! Bluewater Grille also offers an outstanding selection of adult beverages, with great specials as well. Happy hour is Monday-Friday from 4-7p.m., and offers $2 off all house beers and wines along with $5 ultra-premium cocktails.

conga

latin food

Let’s start with what you won’t find at Conga. Though it specializes in Latin food, you won’t find refried beans, tortilla chips, or even salsa on its tables. Restaurant owner René Hernandez said all those foods are part of Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine. Instead, the restaurant focuses on the Latin foods of Central and South America. Hernandez grew up in El Salvador, where the foundation of food is not corn, but plantains. This close cousin to the banana is sliced into chips, fried and served with chimichurri and Conga’s sweet and spicy mango sauce at every table. While the restaurant has been at its 207 E. Main Street location for ten years, its former name was Taco Rico, but to brand it more clearly as a Latin restaurant, Hernandez notes the name was changed to Conga three years ago. Instead of tacos, the restaurant serves up another popular Latin street food: pupusas. Meat, beans and cheese are combined, wrapped in maize dough,

flattened and fried. This is the national food of El Salvador, and represents the country food-wise more than anything, Hernandez said. Conga has also created new twists on the national staple, stuffing pupusas with spinach, chicken or cilantro and onions. Meals are in the $10 range and are less spicy and more tropical than the usual Tex-Mex. Conga’s ceviche, raw tilapia cured in lime juice, is a salty and tart dish that will make you re-imagine Hemingway’s “Old Man and The Sea”. It’s a ceviche, Hernandez said, made in a style distinctly El Salvadorian. Conga’s fare brings other Latin food regions to Chattanooga, such as its empanadas, made with beef, olives, onions and raisins—a variation found in Chile, while Columbian cooks would stuff their empanadas with just beef. Hernandez hopes Conga brings something of Latin culture to the city. “Food is the easiest way to people’s hearts,” he said.

They feature a variety of sandwiches, salads, and their specialty: amazingly fresh, never-frozen half-pound burgers.

Got tacos? 811 Market St. Chattanooga (423) 805-4553 Now open at 7 a.m. with breakfast burritos 24 • The Pulse • SPRING/SUMMER CHOW • MAY 15, 2014 • chattanoogapulse.com

Want to head South of the border for lunch, but don’t have a private jet handy to fly you there and back? The solution can be found right in downtown at the brand new El Macho Taco on Market Street. A Cali/Mex style, family-owned restaurant, El Macho Taco is now open in the former location of Fork and Pie. Owner Armando Ruiz is part of the Ruiz family, which has spread from their restaurant roots into Chattanooga as part of their expansion into East Tennessee. The new location joins 16 other popular locations in the Middle Tennessee/ Nashville area. If you work in a downtown office, they are conveniently located right across from Miller Plaza, perfect for lunch. El Macho Taco is the place for you to get quick, fresh quality food and an enjoyable dining experience. Everything from their highly recommended fish tacos, quesadillas and salsa is made fresh every day. El Macho Taco’s fish tacos are made with breaded flounder and have quickly become

their number-one seller. Do yourself a favor and make them the first menu item you try on your next visit. And don’t forget the salsa for those fish tacos. El Macho Taco has a complimentary salsa bar with four different styles: a sweet salsa, a standard red salsa, and two different hot salsas for those looking for an extra kick when you dig in. There is still some experimenting going on when it comes to hours, as they adapt to their new downtown home, but for the moment they are open Monday - Thursday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. (with breakfast burritos to start the day), on Friday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. They will be trying some later hours during the summer Nightfall concert series, so you can enjoy some great music and get your hands on the El Macho Taco goodness. A part of the ever-growing downtown Chattanooga food fiesta, El Macho Taco should become a household name for years to come. Ole!

MAIN STREET

MEATS

You may have already heard the hype surrounding Main Street Meats on the Southside. Sitting down with one of the partners, Dan Key, it quickly becomes apparent the “hype” is true. From the moment you walk into the store, the aromas tempting your nose take you back to the time of a small-town butcher shop where everyone knows your name. The staff are all very passionate about their work and dedicated to delivering the best “food experience” to their customers. Their belief is that there is much more to being a butcher shop than simply cutting meat and selling meat. Every customer is treated as a friend. The mission is to send them home not only with an amazing cut of meat, but ideas on how get the best out of each cut. Main Street Meats works with eight local farms from Polk County, Tennessee to Flintstone, Georgia to give customers the best meats and cheeses in the area. Every farmer Main Street Meats works with is personally visited to validate healthy natural growing practices and all products are tested for serving quality before Main Street Meats partners with them.

Every partner farm agrees to never feed antibiotics, growth stimulants or animal components to their animals and to provide a natural environment where the animals can grow, socialize and act naturally. The grazing animals, beef and lamb, are grass fed and grass finished and the meat is hung to dry age before being butchered for the meat case. The poultry and pigs’ diets are supplemented with certified non-GMO grains. This emphasis on happy, healthy animals ensures you get the highest quality…naturally…every time. When you are looking for locally grown meat and poultry that is free of anything artificial, or processed…Main Street Meats is the place for you. Lunch is served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Daily specials are posted online. Our advice: Make sure to try the house burger. It’s a delight for all your senses. With a mission statement posted in front of the store guaranteeing the best quality meats, combined with a hometown feeling and sense of community, Main Street Meats is sure to be one of Chattanooga’s gems for years to come.

A Cut

ABOVE Main Street Meats is Chattanooga's neighborhood butcher. By working with local farms that are deeply committed to animal quality and care, we are able to offer meat and poultry that is free of anything artificial... no artificial colors no steroids, no growth hormones, no antibiotics. Just clean meat. Main Street Meats... changing the way that Chattanoogans know, experience and enjoy meat.

the hot

Chocolatier Whether you’re in the mood for something sweet, salty, crunchy, gooey or fruity, The Hot Chocolatier has something to satisfy that craving. The store is relocating to 1437 Market St., right across from the Chattanooga Choo Choo, but the business that you know and love isn’t changing. Their new location will offer customers a bigger space, with even more room for their famously yummy goodies. Best known for their chocolates, gourmet pastries, hot chocolate and coffee, The Hot Chocolatier offers customers “the highest quality chocolates and confections using the best and freshest ingredients available.” Each of their products is handmade and prepared with local products when possible. Founded by husband-and-wife duo Wendy and Brandon Buckner in 2008, this locally owned business creates artisan truffles, squirrels (“nuts buried under layers of irresistible caramel and chocolate”), nuts, bars, pretzels, marshmallows, fruits and beverages. If you’re craving something baked, The Hot Chocolatier also offers des-

serts such as macaroons, cookies, biscottis, brownies, cakes, trifles, cupcakes and tarts, all created in-house. In addition to this range of sweets, The Hot Chocolatier designs sculptures or, as they are better described, “showpieces, centerpieces and cake toppers available in thematic or abstract presentations.” If the store is provided with an idea by the customer, these sculptures can be prepared for any special event, as long as they receive a deposit and two weeks’ notice. The Hot Chocolatier gives customers the chance to watch the pastry chefs and chocolatiers create their products, and see the process they work through every day. With a wide variety of sweets, created with dark, milk, and white chocolates, The Hot Chocolatier has become a habit for chocoholics—will you be next? For more information on The Hot Chocolatier, or to see pictures of some of their creations, visit their website: thehotchocolatier.com, or their Facebook page.

southern star

1300 Broad Street Monday - Friday 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. Southern Star has been a fixture in Chattanooga for more than 13 years. After a four-year stint in a small Southern Georgia town, owners Rick and Nancy decided to bring their taste of home to the Scenic City. Chattanoogans have learned if it’s a good “meat and three” you’re looking for, you can find it downtown at the corner of Broad and 13th or up on Signal Mountain on Taft Highway in the Signal Mountain Plaza. What you might not know is Southern Star isn’t just a place to get great down-home cookin’, it’s also the spot for the busiest parents in Chattanooga. After a long day of work, the thought of getting the kids to do homework and take baths is exhausting. Having to prepare dinner on top of all of that can be just too much. Southern Star has you covered with their dinners to go. These are

fully prepared meals waiting for you to walk in, take them home, and pop them in the oven. No muss, no fuss, and most importantly, no cooking clean-up! From downhome favorites like chicken and dressing casserole and meatloaf, to more exotic dishes such as Asian glazed salmon and pesto chicken pasta, it is all prepared fresh daily for you to take and bake. When you walk through the door at Southern Star, just to your left you’ll find a world of entrées, sides, and more waiting to make your life much easier! So don’t fret, parents, Southern Star is open until 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, so even the overtime types can take advantage of the convenience. Southern Star has an answer to your challenging schedule. Swing by after work and grab dinner for the family. You won’t regret it.

1200 Taft Highway Monday - Friday 11 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. Take Away Dinners Until 7 p.m.

chattanooga brewing company Located adjacent to the south end zone of Finley Stadium is the revival of a Chattanooga pastime. Chattanooga Brewing Company still holds true to the original brewers who first opened it in 1890. (They were forced to shut down in 1915 by the fledging prohibition movement.) Former engineers and home brewers Mark Marcum and Jonathan Clark re-opened the brewery in 2010 on Frazier Avenue, but have recently upsized to the new location at 1804 Chestnut Street. The new location offers customers “a pleasant retail experience,” as Mark Marcum puts it, while the Frazier location was just a place to stop by and grab a few pints or fill a growler. Chattanooga Brewing Company pays homage to the original German owners of the company by brewing authentic German-style beer. The brewery even kept the name of the beer that originally put the company on the map, the Imperial Pilsner. This Munich Helles-style pilsner is not your American pilsner. This beer has the full body and full flavor that only the Germans can produce. The Chickbock is a German-style maibock made with Munich malts and a dash of chocolate. The Two Taverns Pale Ale is made from caramel malts and is similar to an English-style pale ale. The Hill City IPA is similar to the Two Taverns Pale Ale, but is unfiltered to give it a full flavored IPA taste. The new menu at the brewery features pubgrub done right with an emphasis on fresh ingredients. Beer cheese is featured throughout the menu. It’s made with four different types of cheese and can be found on anything from the Beer Cheese Nachos to the Beer Cheese Pretzel. All the bread used is baked locally at Bluff

View Bakery and pretzels are made with spent grain, a brewing by-product. The Chickbock Tenders are hand cut and beer battered with Chickbock flouring. The SJL is a pimento cheese sandwich made with white cheddar, banana peppers and bacon. The menu also has three stuffed pockets: The Classic (mozzarella, provolone, pepperoni and cherry tomato sauce), the Hot Chick (mozzarella, bleu cheese crumbles, buffalo chicken, served with ranch), and the Southshore (ground beef, black olives, onions, jalapenos, feta, cheddar and mozzarella). Chattanooga Brewing Company knows they cannot recreate exactly what the original brewers did on 2nd and Broad more than a century ago, but they stay true to the company’s German roots, and with the recent expansion, look to make history of their own.

Imagine this: It’s summertime and you and the family are out on the Chickamauga Dam. The weather is perfect. The sun is smiling overhead. But what’s this? We forgot to pack a lunch! Have no fear. The Lakeshore Grille is here! A quick hop, skip and boat ride over to the Lakeshore Marina will solve all your boating hunger needs. We caught up with owner Richard to delve into what makes the Lakeshore Grille so great. For starters, this place has only been open for about one month, and is completely renewed. For example, the nonsmoking atmosphere makes it perfect for the whole Dam family! The view is without a doubt breathtaking. Each dish is handcrafted to perfection. Steaks, seafood, burgers, wings—it’s impossible not to find

something appealing. They offer a lunch menu, a dinner menu, and even a Sunday Brunch. Tuna and swordfish are among the most popular seafood dishes. Beautiful hardwood floors and décor create an inviting and welcoming atmosphere for you and your crew. When the weather is beautiful, the Lakeshore Grille is here to please with a masterfully crafted deck overlooking the river. The owner encourages boaters to stop by and have some lunch. “Come off the boat in your bathing suit and enjoy a quick bite to eat,” Richard recommends. Be sure to stop by and check out their delicious food and fantastic atmosphere. Summertime is fun time and the best place to enjoy good eats is at the Lakeshore Grille!

taqeuria jalis c o Taqueria Jalisco has been one of Chattanooga’s best-kept secrets since the quaint Mexican eatery first opened in 2011. Tucked away on Rossville Avenue, across from the legendary Zarzours Café, the restaurant has enjoyed almost cult-like status by serving traditional Mexican food that hasn’t been Americanized to the point of compromising its roots, while remaining approachable for the average Chattanoogan. Now they are expanding with a new downtown location and bringing their special combination of flavors, dishes, passion and personality to Miller Plaza. If you’re new to Taqueria Jalisco, don’t expect to find yellow globs of nacho cheese or mounds of sour cream indiscriminately plopped over every dish; thankfully, their food bears no resemblance to anything you’ll get from Taco Bell. There are familiar items such as tacos and burritos which you can get with a choice of meats ranging from the standard shredded chicken or pork to the more adventurous lengua (beef tongue, which tastes like deli roast beef). A favorite dish at the Rossville Avenue loca-

tion is the handmade mole tamales, with tender pulled pork and mole sauce ribboned through the masa itself. The fluffy masa and slow-cooked pork marries with the deep, rich flavors and hint of sweetness from the mole before being wrapped in banana leaves and steamed to tamale perfection. As with any skilled cook’s offerings, each dish at Taqueria Jalisco is a balanced interplay of textures and gustation, meant to simultaneously satisfy and tease your palate. More space is needed to elaborate on the varieties of tortas (the king of sandwiches), their bright and crispy tostadas, or the incredible desserts Jorge bakes from scratch three mornings a week, such as his spectacular rum tres leches cake. The Rossville Avenue location is open 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Monday and 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The Miller Plaza store is open Monday through Friday 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. and 6 –10 p.m. during Nightfall. Get the word out and get to Taqueria Jalisco today. They have been one of the city’s bestkept secrets for entirely too long.

on the season. Their food is local, sustainable and made from scratch. Take, for example, the Pecan Chicken Club sandwich. At first look, it’s a chicken breast sandwich served with fries. However, the sandwich embodies local flavor as the chicken comes from North Georgia. And green? If the restaurant packs the meal to go, it includes wooden utensils instead of the usual plastic ones. Another place where the restaurant’s commitment to local and sustainability can be seen is in its Green Tomato Cake, one of the dessert options on rotation. When it comes to fried tomatoes, most people want the meaty middle. That leaves the ends of the tomatoes to be chopped up, soaked in Chattanooga whisky, and baked in a cake frosted with cream cheese frosting that tastes both of summer and of Christmas. In the last year, 212 Market has seen its catering service increase for weddings, business lunches, and even business breakfasts. Beer sales are growing as well, and 212 now keeps a Chattanooga brew on tap. For everyone who walks through their doors, 212 Market is committed to serving superb, locally sourced food with a sense of place and commitment to the community.

One of the most distinctly Chattanoogan places to eat is without a doubt 212 Market Restaurant. Today, most people equate downtown, with the Aquarium and the walking bridge, as the very essence of the city’s renaissance. 212 Market, located at the same address as its name, has been there since the Aquarium broke ground and the downtown was not the place you wanted to leave your car, said restaurant owner Sally Moses. And the restaurant has grown with the area. It was the first certified green restaurant in Tennessee. It has won Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence several times over for its wine selection. Today, the list is 350 wines large and 22 years in the making, said restaurant manager Jesse Pyron. (You can enjoy a half-price wine list on Tuesdays.) 212 caters to both the guest who wants to enjoy a five-course meal with wine, and the casual diner who wants to have a cheeseburger and beer. But for the dicriminating diner, 212 changes its menu based

Acropolis Mediterranean Grill To the Greeks, “eating Greek” means dining on food that is bursting with flavors, feasting with family and friends through good times and bad, and celebrating life with an attitude and an appetite. This is the type of experience customers can expect when dining at The Acropolis. The renovated Acropolis may look different, but it’s still the same familyowned business that we all know and love. Celebrating their 20th year this summer, the Kyriakidis family continues to provide Chattanoogans with menus of delicious Greek and Mediterranean dishes, prepared with the freshest ingredients that allow customers to feel as if they are vacationing on the islands of Greece. With renovations completed last fall, The Acropolis now features a newly expanded patio and bar. Warmer weather is just around the corner (in fact, it’s here!). That means you can enjoy your wonderful food and spend time with friends the way the Greeks do, relaxing outside. What could be a better than a glass of Greek wine or homemade Mediterranean sangria, a plate of stuffed grape leaves or delicious hummus, and the summer sunshine on the patio? Renovations also include the new Acropolis bar. The Acropolis has been known for their fresh and tasty food for over 20 years. Now you can

add wonderful happy hour promotions and bites to that reputation as well. Along with the new look, the Kyriakidis family has several events lined up. A personal favorite is a patio wine tasting that’s been in the works! And don’t forget there is now room for desserts, coffee, and internet in the lobby café. So when your tastebuds crave local, seasonal, delicious favorites like Greek Salad, Spanakopita, freshly caught and prepared seafood, lamb the way it should be prepared, or any number of those famous Acropolis pastries, the place your mind and your body should think to go is The Acropolis. Local, Seasonal, FRESH!
