New Restaurant Stir Is Now Open At The Chattanooga Choo Choo

Monday, November 16, 2015

Stir, the newest Chattanooga restaurant concept by SquareOne Holdings, is now open at the Chattanooga Choo Choo in a refurbished space that meshes Chattanooga history with a modern, urban feel. 

Stir's ‘New American’ menu offers bold, seasonal, local fare with a new-age spin, said officials. The ingredient-driven dining experience offers from scratch gourmet in a casual-hip atmosphere, including oysters at the dedicated raw bar.

Stir uses ingredients predominately from farms and vendors within 100 miles of Chattanooga through the restaurants partner Harvested Here.

Artisanal ice plays a role in Stir's bar concept – with purified slow melting ice in each cocktail. Cocktail recipes were created in partnership with bartender and 20-year veteran Gary Crunkleton from a selection of more than 350 spirits. 

Indoor seating accommodates up to 200 guests, and outdoor seating up to 100 guests in the Chattanooga Choo Choo’s newly renovated space. The original structure dates back to 1908 and the restaurant has updated the inside and out while keeping many original elements exposed and intact in the 5,300 square foot restaurant.  Private parties can accommodate up to 40 guests in the “Kabooze Room” and an additional 40 on the private terrace. 

In support of its partnership with Chattanooga Community Kitchen, Stir will make a donation to the organization in celebration of the restaurant’s grand opening week. 

The restaurant is open Sunday from 10:30 a.m.–12 a.m. with brunch served from 10:30 a.m.–2 p.m.; Monday–Thursday from 11 a.m.-12 a.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m.–1 a.m. 

Local partners include Chattanooga Community Kitchen – non-profit philanthropy; Clumpies – ice cream/dessert; Fleetwood Coffee - coffee; Graphic Designer Joe Tenison – logo design; Harvested Here – local food; Industrial Farmhouse – furniture design; Niedlov’s – bakery items; Riverworks Marketing Group - website; The Hot Chocolatier – dessert and Waterhouse Public Relations – public relations and social media.  National and regional partners include Gary Crunkleton – bar concept and Trapp Associates Ltd.- architecture and design.
