MIGUEL MORALES – 1885 GRILL

2021-05-24T17:02:14-05:00

SOUTHERN COASTAL CUISINE

In addition to the shrimp and grits, hushpuppies, and pimento cheese that made the restaurant a Chattanooga favorite, 1855’s Acworth location has a few special things to call its own: think low-country boils, plus grab-and-go picnic baskets. “We’re super excited to become part of the community,” says Miguel, “and we have every intention of continuing the tradition of bringing something special that can create another great destination....

Chip “J.D.” Allen opened his Main Street barbecue restaurant, J.D.’s Bar-B-Q, in 2011. Since then, he’s attracted regulars from as far as Chattanooga who come to the circa-1925 schoolhouse for Chip’s slow, wood-smoked barbecue, made-from-scratch barbecue sauce, fried corn on the cob, and his Grandma’s coleslaw recipe (especially on top of a hotdog). Chip, whose motto is “straight from the pit to plate,”...

2020-05-28T01:01:07-05:00

SOUTHERN CAJUN FUSION... YUM!

"It’s Southern, fusion, and Cajun. My first job back from Europe was in a fusion restaurant. The Southern part comes from my upbringing — for 18 years I was brought up on a farm and my nanny did Southern cooking. That’s where you get Louisiana alligator flash-fried with a hoisin sauce, topped with remoulade. We do traditional gumbo, etouffee, and jambalaya, but then we have Nanny Castell’s fried chicken plate, served over..."
