Everyone is encouraged to explore the city’s restaurant scene during the Chattanooga Dine Around on Friday, September 14th and Saturday, September 15th. Chef Brown was impressed by what he experienced while touring partner establishments during last year’s Dine Around. For a mid-sized city, Chattanooga has a surprising number of fine restaurants, Brown said. It’s also nice that many are located in close proximity to downtown. Diners will find special Serve & Protect menu items showcasing the culinary talents of some of the city’s most talented chefs.
Their creativity will be put to the test on Sunday, September 23rd as the Chattanooga Market once again focuses attention on sustainable seafood and locally produced ingredients during the Cast Iron Cook-off.
