Tupelo Honey Opening in Chattanooga

Updated: Tuesday, April 9 2013, 02:29 PM EDT
Tupelo Honey, the beloved Asheville, N.C. restaurant, will bring its eclectic take on the Southern plate to Warehouse Row in Fall 2013.

The restaurant will be the third out-of-market location for the award-winning restaurant and is a welcome culinary addition to the Scenic City.

Loyal followers of this creative, made-from-scratch eatery have been abuzz about the rumored Chattanooga location for months.

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.

"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."

In recent years, Warehouse Row has lured some of the region's best independent retailers to Chattanooga's urban core and transformed the shopping destination into an eclectic mix of fine retail and restaurants.

This success enticed the owner of Tupelo Honey Cafe, a restaurant concept that has an unapologetically inventive take on all that is Southern, to choose the prime retail location for the fifth restaurant.

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.
