|Work trips are sometimes so action-packed that it's hard to put together a post while I'm on the road. When I get home, I move on to the next thing and sometimes fail to post a recap. Since this was my second trip to Chattanooga, TN for work this year, and I was there for almost a week, I couldn't let it slip by without sharing a few highlights. We'll start with some breakfast!|
(Upper left) The Camp House's Yogurt and House Made Granola. Not pictured, a delicious latte and the lovely gathering room where you can work or catch up with local friends. (The rest) Brunch at Easy Bistro is a treat. With a menu that is printed daily, you never know what you might find. I had the avocado toast and the vanilla yogurt with candied peaches, honey and granola.
|The Dwell Hotel is recently renovated and beautiful, as is their website. Their cocktail bar, Matilda Midnight, is great for a quick snack and a cocktail. I had the Pentacles (plum sake, lime, ginger-hop syrup, watermelon ice cube, and sparkling water) and the shrimp fried rice - both were amazing!|
|For dinner, both this trip and my last, The Public House and St. John's Meeting Place. The Public House has two sides - the restaurant and a bar called The Social - and everything, down to the mayo is made from scratch. One night, Brian and I went for a snack at The Social (left hand photo) for some pimento cheese spread on grilled sourdough, fried pickles, and a salad (for balance) and some cocktails - the Alec Eiffel for me and the Chattahattan for Brian. I also went there for lunch one day and had the (bottom right) wedge salad and heirloom tomato salad.|
(Upper right photos) Another night, for dinner, I had a delicious beet salad, summer vegetable tempura (not pictured) and an El Diablo cocktail at the Meeting Place.
|Walking around Chattanooga, a town of roughly 150,000, you get a sense of a community that wants to get people together. One morning I walked past this park that had regular hammocks, these inflatable hammocks (the colorful things which you can order here), and outdoor games you could play.|
|Walking across the pedestrian bridge one evening made me realize that there's a lot to see in this town. I look forward to an excuse to go back and do some more exploring. Where have you explored lately?|
