A Night Out at The Chattanoogan


Inside The Chattanoogan, you can find The Foundry and the Broad Street Grille. If you’re local, you are probably familiar with the luxury hotel and its upscale bar and restaurant, which is open throughout the week for breakfast and lunch. But did you know that the Broad Street Grille recently started serving a seafood buffet on Friday evenings and an Italian buffet on Saturday evenings?

Can anyone else count date nights on their hand since becoming a parent?

Last Saturday, the Broad Street Grille asked us to come check out their new offering, Italian night! My husband and I went out on a date to check out the new Italian buffet. It turned out to be a perfect date.

We started out our night at The Foundry, where they offer signature drinks by their mixologist and a full menu. We ordered the fish tacos, which were phenomenal! The atmosphere was perfect to just unwind from the day before going to dinner. The Foundry even has live music on the weekends (Rick Rushing on Friday and Danimal on Saturdays).


After starting our night at the Foundry, we headed to the Broad Street Grille (BSG) to have dinner. BSG is a classy restaurant that offers views of downtown to enjoy, along with spacious seating for pleasurable dining experience. Chef Tanner Marino and his outstanding team prepare all of the food.

We were impressed with the layout of the buffet. The BSG Italian night includes soup, salad, platters of bread, meat, and cheese, a pasta bar with favorites like penne and spaghetti, and multiple main course options that include vegetarian dishes too. Oh, and I can’t forget my favorite: the dessert table that features local favorites, as well as classic Italian desserts. 

The food was good, y’all. My husband and I made quite a few trips back and forth trying different bruschetta, pasta dishes, and desserts. While on our date, we noticed the views of downtown from our table. We decided to take a stroll around downtown. There’s just something wonderful about taking a stroll downtown when there’s a sunset.

My favorite highlights of the restaurant include how much upscale food you receive at the price, along with kids five and under eating free, because let’s be real; getting a babysitter isn’t always the easiest task.

I think you can tell, but The Chattanoogan really is the perfect date location or even a girls’ night! Start at The Foundry to enjoy an appetizer and a handmade drink. Then enjoy a relaxing massage (book ahead of time!) at the spa. Afterwards, finish the night at the BSG, where you can enjoy dinner and signature drinks. Dinner hours range from 5pm until 10pm, so you have plenty of time to enjoy the night.

If you’re looking for your next date night or night out this weekend, be sure to check out the Broad Street Grille and The Foundry.
