The wife and I are going out Saturday night to see Allison Krause with Tony Rice at the Memorial Auditorium. We are going to be sans rugrat from 5pm on. That being said we want to hit up a restaurant that is not kid friendly. Any suggestions in the downtown north chatt area? We want somewhere we haven't been before. We have eaten at Foodworks and 212 Market.
Chattanooga Seafood Company (I think that's the right name, next door to the Mellow Mushroom) isn't too bad or too overpriced, at least the times we have been. Oddly enough, the pork is great.
They always mean beautiful things like hummingbirds. I always reply by saying that I think of a little child in east Africa with a worm burrowing through his eyeball. The worm cannot live in any other way, except by burrowing through eyeballs. I find that hard to reconcile with the notion of a divine and benevolent creator.

Funny, red and I were just talking about this, Blue water does many things very very well...steak is not one of them. Ok cut of meat, underseasoned...nothing about it screams "wow"! It's a fish place...order the fish. Bluck, try Table 2....nice wine selection and I recommend the Pasta Pepperalle. Hand cut pasta, wine reduction, tender chunks of rabbit, mushrooms...excellent..
If freckles were flotation devices, I could walk on water!

While I've never had the steak at Bluewater, Fungrrll is correct when she says they do seafood well. The seafood stuffed pasta shells are delicious and despite not looking like a lot of food when they come out, trust me - you will be full. I've not eaten it but I've been told the lobster bisque is very good.
Sadly my son had a very bad cold that became worse this weekend. He is feeling better now fortunately. That being said we made the decision to cancel our reservation and stay home with him over going out. So I will save this information for a later time. I was really hoping to give a review.
We went to Table Two last night for the first time. I love the atmosphere, and the wine list was extensive with many excellent options. My husband had the German porter on tap, and he said it was excellent. My only food complaint is that the chicken I ordered was overcooked, which is easy, I guess, to do, when it is prepared on the grill. Another dining partner had the blackened mahi mahi fajitas, and he raved about them. The ceasar salad was excellent, and the peanut butter martini was wonderful! They were doing a brisk business, and in spite of many servers, our service was not that good -- we waited 35 minutes from the time we received our drinks until the waiter came back to take our food order. Table Two is a welcomed addition to the Chattanooga dining scene, and we will go back. It's a bit pricey, so it will be for special occasions.
OK. Sorry I got all Defcon 5 over this but people use the word martini much too loosely. IMHO of course. A martini has NOTHING sweet in it. A martini has gin and vermouth in it. I bend to the use of an axcellent vodka and vermouth but that is my personal limit. I have nothing against the craft of mixology by any means, but please try to find a different term for nasty sweet drinks served in a martini glass.
Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean people aren't after you.
Actually the Peanut Butter Martini doughlady referred to that they serve at Table 2 isn't a martini at all. It's a dessert served in a martini glass. It isn't something to drink, it is something you eat with a spoon. Strictly a delicious dessert!
