Syrup and Eggs: While Syrup and Eggs isn’t necessarily a new restaurant, it just reopened in its new location inside the Dwell Hotel with a bigger space, coffee bar, and an extended menu. The breakfast/brunch restaurant is known for its unique pancakes, like their “orange you glad it’s a poppy seed pancake.” Syrup and Eggs also has some delicious vegan pancakes and options for people who eat gluten free, too.
Top of the Rock: This restaurant is a bit fancier and out of the way, but the views from the restaurant are definitely worth it. The restaurant is on top of Jasper Mountain with menu items like filet mignon, chicken piccata, and pecan-crusted rainbow trout. While the restaurant is rather jaunty, it’s cheaper than you may anticipate, which makes it nice for slightly well-to-do nights out.
Anastasia’s Old World Delicatessen: This new deli located at the end of Chestnut St. serves all of its sandwiches on fresh bread from Niedlovs. The location in West Village is super convenient and cute, and they offer great sandwiches for pretty much everyone. They also have breakfast items like avocado or peanut butter and banana toast, and serve illy coffee all day.
Market South Food Hall: Technically, this is really multiple new restaurants in one location. Market South food hall comes from the same owners who brought Chattanooga Taco Mamacita, Urban Stack, Community Pie, and more, so you know this place has to be delicious. The food hall features three different restaurants: Slowrise Pizza, Grand Trunk Railroad (with Indian cuisine), and Chowmain. There’s also a tap room and coffee shop in the food hall, which makes for a perfect place to take your friends who can never decide on a restaurant. You can find Market South at 1501 Long St., near the Chattanooga Choo Choo.
Big Kahuna Wings: Big Kahuna recently opened right across from the Tennessee Aquarium. The restaurant offers wings (of course), a bar, multiple TVs and incredibly pleasant patio seating for customers. They specialize in hormone-free, organic dry-rub wings. (They’re also in the process of hiring right now, so if you’re looking for a job, check them out!)
Willow St. Deli: This restaurant isn’t opening until Nov. 23, but once it does, it will be Chattanooga’s first vegan deli! The restaurant will be run by “your local seitanist,” a vegan pop-up in Chattanooga. The restaurant will have an all-vegan menu, including items like biscuits and gravy, chicken and waffles, and Po’boy sandwiches.
