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.

Tired Of Property Tax Increases

Why is it every time the city of Chattanooga and Hamilton County want to raise money they have to punish the homeowners?  I'm sick of the few paying for the many.   If you want to be fair, I would not complain on a 1/2 cent local sales tax raise since everyone would have to contribute their fair share.  Or how about a wheel tax which would get everyone who owns ...
