Knoxville, TN........ Wed, 05/12/10 2:33 PM (permalink)
Can you help me with lunch/dinner in Knoxville for several days.  Casual places for lunch are fine but fine dining is preferred for dinner.  Thanks.

    Fine dining:  Northshore Brasserie (French/Belgian): 9430 S Northshore Dr.  Finest meal I've had in the greater Knoxville area.

    Other places I've enjoyed include Chez Guevara (Kingston Pike, good Mexican) and Tomato Head (Market Square, great pesto).

    For casual, if you are by Oak Ridge (NW of town) I seem to end up at the Soup Kitchen a lot, which has very good soups and there's a nice ice cream place down the way.  For burgers, check out Litton's in Fountain City.

    (I got to Oak Ridge a lot for work...)

      I was all set to try Litton's next weekend but now that I've heard about these steamed sandwiches apparently unique to the region, I'd rather try one of those.  Where should I go?  Nixon's?

        Some Knoxville eating news.
        We just got our first Ethiopian restaurant located on Sutherland Ave in the same building as the Holy Land, a Middle Eastern grocery & restaurant.  I went yesterday and was very impressed.
        Also, Litton's coconut cream pie was just names one of the top 15 pies in the south by Southern Living magazine.

          Oh, just in case no one has noticed one of those Brazilian steakhouses has also opened recently in Knoxvegas.  Called Brazieros, it's right next to PF Chang's and a good place for a celebration.  Dinner is $32.50.

              In September, we ate at Foothills Milling Company in Maryville.  A personal chef in Knoxville advised that it was currently the best fine dining in Knoxville - even though it is in Maryville, rather than Knoxville.  I posted about that experience on another Knoxville thread.  It's not roadfood, but it was an excellent fine dining experience.

                For the best example of Knoxvilles famed steamed sandwiches, you just cannot go wrong with the "Time Out Deli" on Kingston Pike. This one is also known as Jerusalems Lot. All of their deli sandwiches are steamed including their steak in a sack. There are a few Time Out Delis in the Knoxville area, so only go to the one on Kingston Pike. While there, if you have the room..... Try their "green bean dip" served with pita bread. Also ask about their daily special dinner. Their "king Solomon Chicken Dinner is very good. This is a "Must Do" when in Knoxville!

                  Yeah, Time Out Deli on Kingston is a pretty good place.  I'd check them out for a steamed sandwich.

                    Wife & I went to the Aegean Greek restaurant last night in Bearden.  What a wonderful place.  It's in an old Ruby Tuesday's but you'd never know it.  Place is really well done.  Food was superb.  The owners are from Greece and they have a wonderful menu.
                    Apparently it was heavily damaged by hail about a month after it opened and was closed almost four months being repaired and remodeled.  Right in the heart of Bearden and I'd highly recommend for both lunch and dinner.
