Contemporary Cuisine

Tennessee chefs and restaurant owners teem with creative genius. Find fusion next to humble, delicious Southern meat & threes.

While Tennessee has a rich culinary history, our chefs are making meals more modern all the time. Their creativity has something to tempt and please every palate and pocketbook.


The Bald Headed Bistro in Cleveland takes classic comfort food and turns it up a notch with everything from seafood to wild game to create a more contemporary but no less satisfying cuisine. Sample the rainbow trout, pecan chicken or Jack Daniel creme brulee under the massive beams and glass nestled against the Smoky Mountains at Gatlinburg’s Park Grill, and you’ll be back. Select Southern sophisticated, but not stuffy, at 212 Market Restaurant in Chattanooga.
