Brewhaus Gastropub Chattanooga’s only German-American gastropub rests on Frazier Avenue atop the North Shore, overlooking Coolidge Park, the Tennessee River, and the Walnut Street Bridge. But what is a gastropub? Brewhaus defines it for us: an “environment with a strong emphasis on chef driven food, paired with good ale & wine, in a casual setting”. The inventive chefs at Brewhaus have developed a menu special to Chattanooga, heavily inspired by traditional, hale German foods and flavors, but with a southernAmerican twist in what turned out to be the perfect combination. Their creative menu has a healthy representation of German favorites, Southern classics, and the necessary sophisticated pub-grub for refined, yet relaxed, tastes. If you’re not sure what to try first, the Brewhaus Sampler combines three of the most popular starters onto one delicious plate. It’s composed of one oversized German pretzel (soft, salted, fresh from the Bluff View Bakery, and served with their house-made cider mustard, horseradish mustard, and cherry ale mustard), three brat sliders (a lovely combination of the best of German and American favorites), and four signature kraut

balls (bratwurst, cheese, and sauerkraut rolled in a house-seasoned flour, fried to perfection, and served with an ale mustard). Those are just the starters. Don’t miss out on entrées like The Brewhaha, a grilled, beer-marinated brat and a smoked sausage atop a bed of kraut served with German potato salad, veggie medley, and ale mustard, or the vegetarian-friendly veggie spaetzle, German-style egg noodles tossed in a creamy mushroom pepper sauce with fresh steamed broccoli, carrots, and squash. To go with you meal, try some fried apple pie for dessert, and any of their very large variety of both German and domestic beers. For beer connoisseurs, the O’Zapft Is! Bier Club is a great option, since members receive discounts and can vote for new beers on draught. Two new beers to try this winter season come straight from the Chattanooga Brewing Company: Winter Warmer and Black Lager. Brewhaus is everyone’s pub, whether you’re wearing coming straight from work, working out, or hanging out with friends. Winter is coming quickly, so you’ll need a warm, welcoming gastropub with hearty food, robust beer, and good friends. Auf gute lage und froehliche naechte! (Here’s to a good round of beer and cheerful nights!)

Terminal Brewhouse

The Terminal Brewhouse has become a landmark for beer lovers in Chattanooga. Brewmaster Steve Purdie keeps four of their amazing beers on tap year round, with rotating session beers taking a fifth spot and a sixth filled by seasonal offerings. The Brewhouse beers may be humorously named—Terminally Ale Copper Ale, Rock Out With Your Bock Out Maibock—but they’re no joke. These are some of the highest caliber brews made in the region. Foodies have reason to be enthralled

Hair Of The


A pub, short for public house, is defined in many sources as “an establishment where alcoholic beverages are sold.” Those who frequent a true pub, on the other hand, will tell you that it’s a whole lot more than that. The Hair of the Dog defines the concept on their website as “where you go anytime to feel at home and to enjoy a meal and a pint or a cocktail.” That sounds just about right. The menu, as one might expect, may be the very definition of “pub grub.” Feel-good favorites are produced inhouse, from fried cheese and beer cheese soup to BLTs and patty melts.

with The Terminal, too. If they offered nothing but their appetizer menu, that would still be true. Feta-Basil-Pine Nut-Olive Oil Spread on local artisanal bread? Pizza Egg Rolls? Maple-Chi-

potle Pot Roast and Queso Nachos? Yes, yes and yes, please. For sandwiches, options range from The Macho Man, cajun chicken with hot sausage and pepper jack, to the It’s Al-

ways Sunny In Philly. (And don’t worry, even more care goes into making the food than coming up with the awesome names.) Their Philosopher’s Burger is a Greek-inspired wonder—ground lamb, seasoned with cinnamon, oregano, shallots and sea-salt-meets-feta aioli and candied red onions. Must we continue? Yes. Pizzas, steak, short ribs, salmon cakes…OK, OK, you get the point. Just pay them a visit already.


Fish and chips, bangers and mash and their Bungalow Pie may be inspired from across the pond, but you’ll feel right at home finishing any of them off. An extensive list of more than 60 beers is on hand. From familiar domestics to craft microbrews and intriguing imports, you’ll no doubt find just the thing to wash down whatever you might choose from the food menu. There is also a full bar, in case you haven’t yet acquired the taste for the customary pub beverage. Pool and darts are available upstairs, but like any good pub, there’s plenty of conversation to be had anywhere in the building. That’s true outside, as well—Hair of the Dog has one of the more fantastic patio spaces in the city. No matter how you’re seeking comfort, odds are Hair of the Dog is a pretty good place to start.

Honest Pint When you walk in The Honest Pint, the first thought to enter your mind may well be, “I hope everything else is as good as the decor.” Seriously.

The interior is stunning, with intricate woodwork and clever repurposing everywhere. The back bar is a work of art in and of itself. Luckily, the food and drinks are as good as the scenery. The worst part of a trip to The Honest Pint is having to choose! Thankfully, with a menu drawn from Irish classics and contemporary American trends, any choice is a great one at the Pint. Appetizers, for instance, include tater tots fried in duck fat, pimento cheese

fritters and potato pancakes. Have you tried the smoked chicken wings or one of their five variations of boxty? Entrees range from a traditional Irish roast to a traditional Irish breakfast. Fish tacos represent the more Ameran side of the menu, as do their “Oink Cakes.” (Think crab cakes. Now think smoked pulled pork and forget about the crab.) The drink list includes a who’s who of Irish and American whiskeys as well as Scotch. Guinness and Smithwick’s pushed with nitrogen (as they should be) are champions of the draught list. Numerous craft and import beers are available by the bottle. See what we meant about the worst part? • fall/winter 2013 • CHATTANOOGA CHOW • The Pulse • 5

Enzo’s Market Enzo’s Market offers a box lunch menu with online ordering at their website, as well as full catering capabilities for groups of any size. 100 West Main Street (423) 486-9312

Located at the heart of Main Street in the Southside district, there is something so perfectly unique about Enzo’s Market. Instead of the grab-and-go feeling you get from an average supermarket, Enzo’s provides a welcoming, stay-for-a-while atmosphere. But what makes the store exceptional is blend of brand names combined with specialty, organic and local goods, all at reasonable prices. Enzo’s grocery selection ranges from the ordinary to the extraordinary. The aisles are stocked with products ranging from Cheerios to imported olives—and almost everything in between. If you’re looking for fresh produce, Enzo’s has you covered, offering organic, locally sourced fruits and veggies, selected by the Tennessee growing season and availability. One of the

most special features of Enzo’s is its practice of whole animal butchery done all in house. This sets them apart as the only grocery store in this region to offer such a service, and enables them to offer different cuts you wouldn’t normally see in stores. They also boast a fantastic selection of local fish, pork, and beef products. While visiting Enzo’s, make sure to stop by the Wine Shop. Nestled at the parking lot entrance, The Wine Shop offers a full selection of wines and high-gravity beers and regularly hosts wine tastings. The staff is currently working on food pairings, so that customers can pick an ideal bottle to complement their meal. Completing the Enzo’s Market experience is the Café, offering a full menu including a coffee bar, bakery, deli salads, sandwiches, smoothies, sushi, craft beers and pizza. Enzo’s Café serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Dining in the café or outdoor patio is the perfect way to begin or end a great day in Chattanooga. In fact, Enzo’s Market is anything but your typical grocery store. • fall/winter 2013 • CHATTANOOGA CHOW • The Pulse • 7

This ain’t your Mama’s home cookin’! Tupelo Honey Café located at Warehouse Row is not lacking in imagination. With a menu chock full of interesting renditions of Southern traditions, it’s not hard to tell this quirky eatery originated in Asheville, NC. After conducting extensive market research, Tupelo Honey Café decided to expand their operation, and with overwhelming outpouring of interest on comment cards saying that Chattanooga was the place to be, the team decided to take a shot in the Scenic City. And they sure have made a splash. Every single thing on the menu is made from scratch, from the appetizers to the entrées and everything in between. The Nutty Fried Chicken is a crowd-pleasing favorite; nut-encrusted, natural, hormone-free, chicken breast topped with milk gravy, served with smashed sweet potatoes and fresh asparagus. The menu lists it as memory making, but mind blowing might be more accurate. Is your palate craving

something sweet? Try the Sweet Potato Pancake located on the extensive breakfast menu. Consisting of one large buttermilk pancake, flavored with cinnamon and sweet potatoes, topped with whipped peach butter and spiced pecans, this delicious disc is sure to satisfy any breakfast enthusiast. If you want to grab a drink to go with your meal, you’re in for a treat, Tupelo Honey Café has created a couple of cocktails featuring Chattanooga Whiskey, including a Blueberry Mint Julep and a Manhattan with Benton Bacon-infused Chattanooga Whiskey. Talk about yummy creativity! There is a little something for everyone at Tupelo Honey Café. They have taken Southern traditions and spun them on their heads—and man, does that scramble taste wonderful. Come out to their new Chattanooga location at 1110 Market St., (423) 779-0400, or visit tupelohoneycafe. com for more information.

Local. Seasonal. Fresh.

Acropolis Mediterranean Grill When deciding where to eat, don’t be fooled by location. The Acropolis may be situated in the Hamilton Place Mall, but it’s all-local, bringing its unique style to an area that might otherwise be identical to every other mall in America. And while The Acropolis makes sure to have traditional, favorite Greek dishes available, they believe that Mediterranean and Greek fare is really about the food production and creation process,

not just about having stereotypically “Greek” recipes. Grape leaves and gyros are delicious—but The Acropolis demonstrates a knack for fusing the fresh, crisp flavors of the Mediterranean with traditional American recipes. Maintaining these high standards for the freshest ingredients and rich flavors, The Acropolis has geared its focus toward seasonal, local ingredients, turning to Chattanooga-area farms and partnering with locals to ensure the best possible quality. By being open to influences from both traditional Greek dishes and from contemporary American foods, the menu offers a wide variety of choices, from traditional dishes like the Signature

Greek Salad, Lamb Kebobs, and Moussaka, to cheeseburgers and club sandwiches, both with a Mediterranean flair. And now the atmosphere matches the menu. Newly renovated, The Acropolis is more Mediterranean: brighter, fresher and even more welcoming. Visit the Acropolis at 2213 Hamilton Place Blvd, (423) 899-5341 or check out for more information.

Kabob-ster Middle Eastern Gourmet s Kideals le M ilab Ava

The astonishing variety and rich flavors of Kabob-ster’s Mediterranean delicacies keep their customers coming back for more. New to Chattanooga as of August 21, Kabob-ster is the first authentic, fully Middle Eastern restaurant in the area. Working with local providers to find the freshest ingredients, Kabobster’s chefs create high-quality, highend dishes—delicious food without the hassles (or exorbitant prices) of fine dining. Even the hummus is fresh, with no canned garbanzo beans.

Vegetarians have plenty of options too, from salads to seasoned, charbroiled vegetable kabobs, falafel, baba ghanouj, and grape leaves. The Vegetarian Sampler lets you try a variety of these. While most of the dishes are Lebanese, the folks at Kabob-ster wish to represent all types of Middle Eastern food on their menu. Their catering ser-

Start with some veggie falafel, served with tahini sauce, burek, a pita stuffed with either ground beef or cheese and spinach, or grape leaves, stuffed with rice, parsley, and tomatoes and cooked in lemon juice and olive oil. Entrees include a selection of salads or hot meals. Those addictive classics, tabouli and Greek salads, are menu highlights. Delicious falafel, gyro, and kabob plates are served with sides and freshly baked tandoor or pita breads. All meats are marinated, then seasoned and freshly cooked, so every saffron-marinated chicken kabob is charbroiled to perfection, and served with saffron-seasoned basmati rice. (For the adventurous, the chicken kabob can be ordered extraspicy.) Possibly the most popular dish is the Kabob-ster Feast: a plate with three Kabob skewers on basmati rice with a

Lupi’s Pizza Pies There’s a difference between a regular old pizza and a pizza pie. Locally owned since its beginning in 1996, Lupi’s Pizza Pies has given customers insight into how pizza pies are supposed to be. Lupi’s epitomizes what it means to be a pizza place. There’s even a small disco ball spinning above the kitchen area. So—what makes them different from other pizza places? Tom Maynard, manager of Lupi’s downtown location, takes pride in his pizza pies being really hot, fresh, and consistent. “We also have one of the highest health scores downtown,” Maynard said. Lupi’s uses locally sourced products whenever possible, including only local ground sausage and ground beef, local wheat flour, honey and eggs all year round. During the growing season, the pizza palace uses local farmers to supply tomatoes, basil, oregano, zucchini, green peppers, cucumbers and flowers. They proclaim they are committed to using local products whenever possible because it allows them to provide a better, more healthy product, along with supporting our local economy. Lupi’s Signature Pizza is one you don’t want to miss; this mammoth pie is piled high with Italian sausage, roasted peppers and garlic, red onions, and fresh basil. Pies like this and many others have made Lupi’s the reigning winner of the Times Free Press’s “Best of the Best” for the last five years, and Cityscope magazine’s “Best Pizza” for the past ten years, as voted by the readers. From their popular handtossed calzones, to their hearty meaty or veggie lasagna, the bases are all covered. Lupi’s has five locations, including Chattanooga, Cleveland, and their most recent opening in Ooltewah at Cambridge Square.

Family-owned, the restaurant recognizes the need for a variety of seasonal menus and daily specials to accommodate everyone, including meat-lovers, vegetarians, kids, and gluten-free eaters.

The fall menu features new dishes made from the best seasonal produce, from the hearty butternut squash and apple soup to the

house-made spinach and American chestnut ravioli.

GiGi’s Cupcakes Cupcakes have become a national phenomenon in recent years—but Gigi’s Cupcakes in particular take baking to the next level. At Gigi’s, cupcakes are works of art. Moist cakes are blank canvasses for delicious towers of icing, decorated beautifully according to flavor. To fit everyone’s fancies, different batches of cupcakes are baked every morning. From the number-one best seller “Wedding Cake,” a white cake topped with vanilla buttercream frosting and white nonpareils, to twists on America’s staple desserts, like “Midnight Magic,” a devil’s-food cake with dark chocolate chips topped with a chocolate buttercream frosting and chocolate chips, Gigi’s variety never disappoints. Inspired by other favorite desserts, the cupcakes are singleserving delicacies that have been transformed from cakes, pies, candies, and fruits. Among creamy “Carrot Cake,” “Scarlett’s Red Velvet Cake,” and “Strawberry Shortcake,” your cake bases are covered. “Chocolate Turtle,” “Peanut Butter Cup,” “Double Stuff” and “Salted Caramel” cupcakes embody their respective candies—if they had been baked to perfection.

They’re somehow even more delicious than their namesakes. This fall, new cupcakes make the list, like “Bananas Foster,” a rich banana cake with spiced rum and spiced rum cream cheese frosting, drizzled with a brown sugar sauce. Another new addition is the “German Chocolate Cake” cupcake, with caramel, coconut and pecan filling and chocolate cream cheese frosting, topped with dollop of filling on a sweet, dark German chocolate cake. The fall menu also includes daily cupcake-sized authentic cheesecakes, in “Classic,” “Chocolate Chip,” and “Turtle,” and occasional specials, such as “Cookies and Cream,” “Lemon,” and “Raspberry.” In addition to cupcakes and cheesecakes, Gigi’s is introducing a new line of gourmet stuffed cookies and morning muffins to make your selection even harder. With the holidays coming fast, try Gigi’s cupcake takes on classic Thanksgiving pies, like “Praline Pecan Pie,” “Apple Pie,” “Coconut Cream Pie,” “Chocolate Cream Pie,” “Kentucky Bourbon,” and

“Pumpkin White Chocolate,” which will be available by special order or in-store the week of Thanksgiving and sporadically throughout November as long as supplies don’t run out…which they do almost every day. As always, Gigi’s recommends ordering ahead or online, just in case. Gigi’s Cupcakes is easy to find, with three stores in Chattanooga— their main store at 1906 Gunbarrel Road, and two satellite stores in Hixson on Hwy. 153 across from Target and in the historic Northshore District at 330 Frazier Avenue. The new Northshore location is the only Gigi’s Cupcakes in the country out of 95 stores that offers frozen yogurt in addition to the full menu of cupcakes, cheesecakes, cook-

ies, and muffins. And, at Gigi’s, every Friday is Gluten-Free Friday. Mini-cupcakes are also sold by the dozen at every store for those who like to savor a bite at a time. To see more specials, follow your local Gigi’s on Facebook, and visit or call the nearest location to create custom-themed cupcakes and specialty cakes for parties, corporate events, weddings, showers… or any other time a little something sweet is needed! Visit all three Gigi's locations at 1906 Gunbarrel Rd #103, (423) 468-4803, 330 Frazier Avenue, Suite 120, (423) 710-1633 and 5550 Hwy. 153, Suite 102 or go to for more information.

Fresh To Order fine. food. fast.

Fresh To Order, also known as f2o, enhances the expectations of today’s discriminating diners by fusing delicious, “fine” food with a laid-back, warm environment to create a new type of niche dining: “fast-fine.” As visionary founder and president Pierre Panos describes it, fast-fine is “incredible food, service and an unparalleled dining environment in under ten minutes for around $10.” Fast-fine dining appeals to a vast, inclusive niche of restaurant-goers who want the fine dining experience of bold flavors, innovative combinations and fresh ingredients, delivered in a way that won’t make them go broke.

Some of the most popular chef-inspired dishes on the menu resemble items from a five-star restaurant, such as the Brown Sugar Roasted Pork Loin and the Grilled Salmon with Black Bean Orange Sauce. F2o also offers other crowd-pleasures, including a variety of elegant sandwiches like the Salmon Panini with Roasted Corn Relish and Tarragon Aioli, and fresh salads, like the Spinach Salad with Blue Cheese Crumbles, Strawberries, and Seasonal Fruit. However, f2o doesn’t just focus on taste and presentation. They also make sure all the food is healthful and nutritious. On their 28 • The Pulse • chattanooga chow • fall/winter 2013 •

New York

Pizza Department New York Pizza Department, or NYPD, is Chattanooga’s one and only authentic New York pizzeria, taking ferocious pride in providing the real New York experience in the land of fried chicken, biscuits and grits. And even though they have only been open since March 2012, they’ve already earned numerous awards and accolades, including’s “Best New Restaurant of Tennessee 2012,” the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce’s “Business of the Month” for March 2013, and’s number-one pick out of the “Top 100 Family Friendly restaurants in the entire country.” With more than 20 specialty pizza pie options, NYPD makes variety and authenticity its top priorities. Every pie is made with only top-quality ingredients, with at least 90 percent accomplished in-house. They reject the entire concept of frozen or

pre-packaged ingredients, making their own dough, shredding their own cheeses, making their own sauces, and cutting each of their vegetables. Because everything is made freshly on a daily basis, you don’t have to worry about preservatives, fillers, or artificial ingredients. NYPD, home of the impressive 24inch pie, offers a large variety, from crust to toppings, to give its customers their own, customized New York experiences. Pizza is available by the slice or in whole pies, in a big, foldable style or with the thick, chewy “Sicilian” crust of Sicilian Style Deep Dish Pizza (known as “Square Pizza” to northerners). Their pizza assortment ranges from “The 911,” with pepperoni, salami, ground beef, mild Italian sausage, bacon, mushroom, black olive, bell pepper, red onion, mozzarella cheese and authentic NY pizza sauce, to the “Verrazzano Veggie,” with onion, bell pepper, mushroom, black olive, tomato, sun dried tomato, broccoli, mozzarella

are expanding to accommodate more people with outdoor seating and a private party room for any occasion from corporate meetings to family gatherings. The menu even includes pastas—baked ziti, fettuccine alfredo, stuffed shells, and spaghetti and meatballs—and sandwiches, including Philly cheesesteaks, Italian hoagies, and Italian beef sandwiches. The new menu coming out with the new year will have a kids’ menu and a variety of specials. Of course, no meal is complete without your choice of authentic desserts—cannoli, New York cheesecake or tiramisu. The Cilen brothers consider their family-run establishment a tribute to the fallen heroes of 9/11 and to America’s other servicemen and women, and, as an act of appreciation for their he- roes, police officers, firefighters,

cheese and NY pizza sauce, to the more traditional, and eternally delicious, cheese pizza. To complement any New York pizza adventure, NYPD also has other NY pizzeria specialties, including calzones, stromboli, pinwheels, dough knots, and salads. Additions are being made right now to both the menu and to the space itself, as they

emergency responders, and military personnel always receive a special discount—20 percent off in uniform and 15 percent off out of uniform. As a family business, they are not only family- and kid-friendly, but also support the community and local charities, schools and sports programs. Don't forget to check out one of their many Picasso-like daily specialty pies, which resemble a masterpiece more than just your typical pizza. These daily specials are all NYPD creations and cannot be found anywhere else outside their Hixson-based establishment.
