Big River Grille & Brewing Works Scenic City classic brews up its best for the holidays

B

ig River Grille & Brewing Works will be Chattanooga’s holiday hot spot this season. The brewery will continue to brew up their award-winning beers—while adding in some festive surprises to pair with the great food and inviting atmosphere. For more than 20 years, Big River has paid homage to 19th-century bygone days, where riverboats brought the finest bounty from the heart of the country to cities on the coast via the Mississippi and Tennessee rivers. Grains and fresh produce were offloaded to consumers and breweries alike to change the culinary landscape. This rich heritage of bringing fresh seasonal ingredients together to create satisfying regional cuisine, lagers and ales continues to flourish at Big River. When you step in the door at Big River—either the Broad Street or Hamilton Place location—you instantly step into an All-American feel-good food place. The afterwork crowd is social and good-natured, drinking hand-crafted beers at the bar and sharing platters of appetizers fresh from the kitchen and the wood-burning oven. And yes, that smoky, slightly savory smell awakens your nostrils right away as your eyes and ears take in the sights and sounds of people who have stopped time to have a good brew and chew. They have a wide selection of pizzas that will make your taste buds salivate. The pepperoni, sau-

sage, and mushroom pizza that comes from the wood-fired oven retains the smoke and has slightly charred bubbles of dough that are crisp against the melting cheese and savory meats. The nachos come to you as a huge board platter of chips covered in blended cheeses with black beans, tomato, onion, jalapeno (and your choice with or without chicken) served with salsa and sour cream. With scrumptious, made-fromscratch in-house fare to nosh on, ’tis the season for being merry in the brewery. Look for these upcoming special brews in the December month: On Dec. 3, Big River Grille & Brewing Works will ring in the holiday season from 5:30-7:30 p.m. with a tapping party. Featuring Yule Fuel, a delicate black lager with hints of unsweetened chocolate and coffee, the brew will be

paired with tasting samples and live music, all at the downtown Broad Street location. Winter’s Nip, a seasonal favorite, will be returning. It is an Einbecker-style lager bock, known for its rich malt and warming finish. And new to the party, Big River Grille & Brewing Works is proud to introduce Blood Orange Cream Ale—a new twist to an old American light ale, made modern with the addition of blood oranges. Come enjoy classic hearty American fare with a new holiday brew and start the season merry and bright! (Open 4 p.m. on Thanksgiving; open 4 p.m. Christmas Day.) Spread the joy and find them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and at www.bigrivergrille.com. Don’t forget to book for your holiday party!

en people think of Chattanooga, they may think of an outdoorsy town or a place with family activities galore—but what they should think about is the food. We have restaurants creating tastes from all over the world, but one that stands alone is Fresh Pot Café, Chattanooga’s only Ecuadorian restaurant. As it would be at home in Ecuador, this restaurant is run by the family, a tradition that has been in Blanca Mullo’s family for years. “My grandmother ran a restaurant for 43 years back home [in Ecuador]” says Blanca. It’s a passion that has lived on in Blanca, who runs Fresh Pot with the help of her daughter, Gabby Cemel. With a deep-rooted desire to produce authentic Ecuadorian dishes, Fresh Pot focuses on the quality and freshness of their products. For Blanca and Gabby, it’s a sensory experience choosing their vegetables, fruits, and more. “We want to touch it, see it, smell it, to

18 • THE PULSE • NOVEMBER 19, 2015 • CHOW RESTAURANT GUIDE • CHATTANOOGAPULSE.COM

know that it’s a quality product for our customers,” says Gabby. “That’s what most important to us.” That means no preservatives, no dyes, and dishes are made-toorder rather than waiting around under a heat lamp all afternoon. Pick from either the Ecuadorian or American menu, which features salads, wraps, and sandwiches. Unlike restaurants churning out the same dish every day, Blanca is constantly trying new ingredients to kick up the flavor, and keep the home-cooked authenticity that’s bringing customers back. Picture an aproned scientist, adding a little of this and a little of that to make the perfect creation. They’ve done just that, bringing to life their most popular dish on the Ecuadorian menu, the fried pork. You’ll probably need a box for leftovers, because this plate is piled high with fried pork, giant white corn, potato cakes, and more. Be sure to bring your appetite, because there is plenty of food to go around.

Celebrate Life. Eat Well.

The Acropolis It’s Greek, it’s Southern, it’s all mouthwatering

A

shopping marathon at Hamilton Place can leave you tired of chain stores and franchise fast food—so visiting The Acropolis after is like a breath of fresh air. The food is Mediterranean in its stylings, yet there is something uniquely Chattanoogan about it. Maybe it’s the fact that The Acropolis has been locally owned and operated here for 20 years. Maybe it’s because they get so many of their ingredients from local sources. Maybe it’s their traditions of famous Greek (and Southern) hospitality and giving back to the community. Whatever it is, that Chattanooga soul is what makes this restaurant perfect for treating family or guests visiting for the holidays. A diverse menu is sure to please even picky eaters, and the mix of offerings from home and from far away are just the right combo, including comfort foods like lamb shank or braised short ribs with grits and

greens. These slow-cooked, rustic flavors are coming out just in time for the cold weather. Grilling is great for the summer, but a braised dish has the kind of hearty, rich flavor that will warm you from the inside out. Their meats cook for as long as four hours before coming out hot and tender to your table. If you can’t make it to sit down dinner at the Acropolis, then you can get it to go or even have it catered. The Acropolis caters offices luncheons and meetings, home parties, and any event you need. Busy this holiday season? You can get a whole cake or dessert to go for your family table with more than twenty choices from their bakery. The Acropolis opens at 11 a.m. every day and stays open until 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. They’re located at 2213 Hamilton Place Blvd., and you can call (423) 899-5341 or visit acropolisgrill.com for catering and menu information.

ICE CREAM OR GOURMET COFFEE

I

know what you’re thinking…it’s November and it’s finally too cold to go out for ice cream. Aside from the fact that it’s never too cold to go out for a frozen treat, you’ll be glad to hear that The Ice Cream Show has plenty more to offer. We can start with gourmet coffee, made from beans roasted and perfected in the Seattle area and then ground in the store for—excuse me—a damn fine cup of coffee. Go for an espresso shot for maximum flavor or the trusty drip brew for maximum caffeine. If coffee isn’t your thing, treat yourself to a hot chocolate or the special Mexican hot chocolate, made with spices and cocoa from Mexico. Plus plenty of milk options let you have your drink however you want! For the health conscious, The Ice Cream Show offers $4 gallon jugs of alkaline water, which is put

20 • THE PULSE • NOVEMBER 19, 2015 • CHOW RESTAURANT GUIDE • CHATTANOOGAPULSE.COM

through a special filtering process to remove harmful chemicals and acids. The levels of alkalinity correspond to different levels of purification, with an end result of better digestive and overall health. You might not think you could be a water snob, but once you get committed you won’t be able to go back to plain restaurant water. If you can eat ice cream in any weather, you’ll be excited to hear that all 17,000 of their possible flavor combinations made from 40 different, fresh ingredients will be available through the winter. Fruit, nuts, chocolate, and even cheesecake can go into the blender with ice cream, froyo, or sugar or dairyfree options. The Ice Cream Show is located at 105 Walnut St., right by the end of the bridge and across from the Hunter Museum. They’re open 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Sunday.

This is a business model that measures every aspect of the business from food to recycling to building space on an environmentally-conscious scale.

ents and built their seasonal fare around it. Chef/owner Susan Moses sees to it that everything on the menu is made from scratch and sourced locally to the point of being picky, says her sister and coowner, Sally Moses. But that quality control is exactly what makes the experience worthwhile and unique. “We have a seasonal menu with a few special options for every lunch and dinner. Yesterday Burton Brown from Eagle’s Rest Bison brought us longhorn steer meat

and we had amazing steer burgers on the menu. Who knew that Chattanooga had longhorn steer feeding on the kudzu on the edge of Lookout Mountain? Can I be quirky and say we are pretty darn casual?” Co-owner Moses also wants custumers to know that 212 Market no longer has the image of being stuffy and is proud to say she now even has servers with pink hair.

When I say they’ve come full circle to where being conscientious is considered cool, Moses laughs. She would encourage you to come find out for yourself. Tuesday night is half-off the wine list. Every day there is a special wine, cocktail, or local beer. They’ll be open on Christmas Eve. (Gift certificates are in good taste). “Call aheads” are always welcome.

Lupi’s Pizza Luscious pizza in the most laidback atmosphere

HOMEG ROWN ING REDIENTS OUT- OF-THIS -WORLD PIZZ A

A

s a Chattanoogan born and raised, I can definitively say that if you haven’t tasted Lupi’s Pizza, you’re missing out. Call me a pizza connoisseur, fanatic, obssessor… it’s all true and I’ve been a lover of the pie from the time I had teeth. One of my favorite things about Lupi’s (besides those fantastic brick-oven pies) is the atmosphere. The minute you walk into the downtown location you’re enveloped in a whimsical world of bright colors and creativity, with local art hanging on the walls for purchase and cloud-style lamps floating above your head. Freestanding tables line the walls, each one a uniquely designed piece of art. Owner Dorris Shober and I sit at a table featuring a customer’s artwork, constellations spreading out beneath the piping hot pizza in front of me. I’d been thinking about it all day. What kind should I get? I wondered as the clock clicked closer to noon. Mozzarella

melts over pepperoni, ground sausage, and a last minute add-on of green peppers. “It’s important to me that we source food locally,” Dorris says. “I feed my customers what I would eat.” It’s as simple as that for Lupi’s, whose mission is to keep their product as local as possible. From the local ground beef to the gluten-free crust made by Couture Cakes exclusively for Lupi’s, Dorris has been doing an incredible job of localizing their brand. She’s even taken bringing her passion of gardening to heart by raising tomatoes, cucumbers, and more in a garden on Lookout Mountain. Choose from the many meats, sauces, cheeses, and veggies to make your own slice of pizza heaven—but good luck deciding, as you could make millions of combinations. Complement your choice with a beer from the extensive beer list, or maybe a glass of wine as you sit back, relax…and lose yourself in Lupi’s.

Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant Classic down-home, family-owned and operated Southern “meat 'n three”

T

hough Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant in downtown Chattanooga has been slinging biscuits and barbecue at Aquarium Way since its grand opening in September 2015, the restaurant’s roots go all the way back to the 1950s, and a little grocery store in the village of Leiper’s Fork, Tenn. Ever since then, the tried-and-true eatery been focused on providing friends new and old with great food and Southern friendliness. A Tennessee landmark with decades-old roots, the family-owned business picked Chattanooga as its first location outside of Middle Tennessee because of the founder Marshalls’ close ties with the city, and for its vibrant (and growing) downtown scene.     Throughout the years, Puckett’s has built its name on hosting live, local musical acts and Southern staples. The Chattanooga location, which has quickly become a favorite among locals, delivers just that—all the while serving up heaping sides of hospitality, too. Really, it seems like not a whole lot has changed since the restaurant launched a formal dinner & music program 10 years ago. If you’ve dug into the menu already, you know their dishes boast of their Tennessee heritage, with Puckett’s own special spin. That’s why for breakfast you’ll see sweet potato pancakes topped with pulled pork and a downhome take on the eggs benedict; at lunch it’s a fried green tomato B.L.T. or heavy helpings of meat-and-three classics; for dinner it’s grits topped with blackened sautéed shrimp,

Cajun fried chicken over a bed of hot waffles or grilled salmon brushed with a moonshine glaze. And if you’re looking for an authentic home-cooked dish, that’s where Puckett’s takes its pride. The secret to their barbecue—chicken, pulled pork, ribs that fall off the bone, too—is the 18-hour process, one that includes slow ‘n’ low cooking over cherry wood and a wrap that mimics the sous vide tradition. Fortunately for Chattanoogans, some of their mouth-watering goodness is up for grabs this holiday season…so you can feel like you’ve taken a seat at the Puckett’s table, no matter where you are. Puckett’s is offering an extensive to-go menu throughout the months of November and December, with options such as whole turkeys roasted, smoked or fried; smoked buffet hams slow-cooked in the Puckett’s smoker (nicknamed “Ruby”); cherry-smoked pulled pork; smoked racks of baby back ribs; and more. Customers can expect the same

made-from-scratch dishes on the Puckett’s holiday pick-up menu that they find at the Chattanooga store. Even better? Many of the classics are old Marshall family recipes that have been handed down over the years. When it comes down to it, Puckett’s is a community kitchen—and you’ll feel that when you’ve had your first experience. Make them a part of your family tradition this year with Puckett’s specialties like cornbread stuffing, green bean casserole, corn pudding, sweet potato casserole, giblet gravy and homemade pies. We can just about guarantee it’ll be a holiday meal you and your family won’t forget. Puckett’s is taking to-go orders through its website at www.puckettsgro.com/holiday or by phone (423) 708-8505. The restaurant is open 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays, and 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
