Tupelo Honey, an Asheville, N.C. restaurant, will bring its eclectic take on the Southern plate to Warehouse Row in the fall. The restaurant will be the third out-of-market location for the award-winning restaurant.

Tupelo Honey features creative, made-from-scratch items. While favorite dishes from the iconic Asheville restaurant will be available at Warehouse Row, the new Tupelo Honey Cafe’s architecture and spirited atmosphere will be decidedly authentic to Chattanooga, it was stated.

“We are committed to fresh, flavorful food made from scratch,” said Stephen Frabitore, president of Tupelo Honey Cafe, noting the restaurant’s reputation for creative Southern fare. “We are excited to become part of the fabric of the Chattanooga community and a place for friends and family to make lasting memories around our dinner table.”   

Tupelo Honey Cafe added a Knoxville location in October 2012 to its two Asheville locations. The group plans to open a Greenville, S.C. location in June, the Chattanooga location this fall and a Johnson City location in 2014.

“Our historic building is home to some of the most beloved regionally-owned brands, and Tupelo Honey’s fun, family-friendly atmosphere and New South flavors are a perfect complement to our restaurant and retail offerings,” said Kristen Morris, vice president of realty for Jamestown, the company that owns Warehouse Row.

Tupelo Honey Cafe will employ around 100 locals to staff its two-story Warehouse Row location. The 5,500 square-foot restaurant will be located at the motor court entrance of Building North and will offer indoor and patio seating for up to 150 guests. Construction is scheduled to begin this spring.

Could The Marriage Decision Spark A New Independence Day?

I confess that this year I am having a hard time with the idea of celebrating the 4th of July Independence Day. It is not because I am not thankful to God for what was done on that day, what it represents, and the blessings I’ve experienced that flow from it. On the other hand, I want to think that maybe this year’s celebration will mark a period in our history in which a new movement ... (click for more)
