Thanks to Broad Street Grille for hosting my family for a meal. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
For all of my local readers (as well as readers who have Chattanooga on their travel bucket list), there’s a restaurant downtown that I regularly recommend to folks who are looking for truly delicious food: Broad Street Grille. It’s located inside The Chattanoogan hotel, which is a beautiful place to stay, by the way). This restaurant is known for hiring outstanding chefs who are creative and enjoy using fresh and local ingredients as much as possible. Without fail, everything I have ever tried at this restaurant has been excellent.
And now they have a special Saturday night menu: an Italian buffet! For my family, an Italian buffet is like a culinary dream come true.
Or at least it used to be…
For health reasons, I now try to eat a lower carb diet (because I’m completely addicted to carbs and have no sense for moderation) and my husband tries to avoid gluten for his own health reasons. Sounds like an Italian buffet is now not such a great idea, right?
But Broad Street Grille’s offerings are extremely impressive and left us both with many, MANY options to enjoy. I personally enjoyed the Seafood Puttanesca. It was loaded with delicious proteins in a sauce that was to die for, AND it was full of yummy seafood which I so rarely get to enjoy because I’m the only one in my family who likes it. Basically, I could have just taken this whole thing back to my table and been happy, but I had many other things I could enjoy, too.
As for Tim, he said the beef braciole was the best take on this dish he has had in his entire life. He was also absolutely tickled to discover that gluten free pasta was available. He was able to enjoy the pasta bar without worry that his joints would feel inflamed later in response. Of course, there were semolina pasta options aplenty for the folks out there who are not sensitive to gluten.
The kids also had their fill of great pasta options, and what kid doesn’t love that? But their favorite part was the spread of desserts. Cannolis, cream puffs and tiramisu were all available for the taking.
We also rounded things out with a little indulgence: one cocktail each. It was just too hard to resist when the drink menu read as follows:
And the drinks tasted absolutely superb. What a delightful spread Broad Street Grille has available each and every Saturday night. My family wouldn’t hesitate to come back and I would strongly suggest that you give it a try, yourself. You will leave full and happy, guaranteed!
