Public House Participates In Inaugural Restaurant Week

Monday, October 17, 2011

Warehouse Row restaurant, Public House, will be participating in Chattanooga’s inaugural restaurant week.

Sponsored by Harvested Here, restaurant week will be Monday through Sunday, at dining establishments around Chattanooga.

“Warehouse Row believes in promoting local businesses, whether it’s restaurants, food or retailers,” said George Krauth, creative manager for Jamestown. “Public House’s participation in the Harvested Here Restaurant Week is exciting and will build momentum for Chattanooga to become a foodie destination.”

Public House and its neighboring bar, The Social, opened in the south end of Warehouse Row in 2009. The Public House menu features fresh fish, high quality steaks and a rotating selection of vegetable sides that are true to the region and the season.

“For many years, Chattanooga has been at the forefront of supporting local farmers and their markets,” said Nathan Lindley, owner of Public House and The Social.

“Events such as Harvested Here Restaurant Week help emphasize the immediate impact of this very important issue. Hopefully, Restaurant Week will also attract a broader audience to restaurants that showcase the excellence and hard work of our region's farmers. Everyone needs to understand that eating locally grown food is not a fad or a charity – for so many health, environmental and economic reasons, it is just good business."

In addition to regular menus, participants are offering a prix fixe menu featuring locally-grown food. Lunch is $15 and dinner is $35.

Don't Clog Up The Last Remaining Semi-Unobstructed Route Into Town From North Of The River

The proposal to turn Hixson Pike in Riverview into a more pedestrian friendly street is more than absurd.   Let's be honest. This is the last semi-unobstructed route into town from north of the river, due to I-27 construction and the bike lane/parking lot that is North Market Street.  So, now the businesses in Riverview would like parking on this main artery? ...
