A dinning experience different from any we have experienced in Chattanooga. Menu offerings are not run of the meal creations. Our taste buds were exhilarated with fabulous flavors never tasted. A restaurant definitely placed on our return list.

Had not planned to write a review but this restaurant deserves one: The food is simply outstanding. I do not usually lean into beets and Brussel sprouts, let alone some with dark chocolate but you have to try it to see how wonderfully it works....More

Forgot the most important part of my answer - the owner came by and introduced himself . He seems especially nice. Bet if you contact him in advance, he will help you plan a special evening!
