St. John's Restaurant is located in the former St. John's Hotel building. Built as a hotel at the turn of the twentieth century during the bustle of the historic Chattanooga Choo Choo, the flatiron building later served as a brothel. After being condemned and nearly torn down in the 1990s, local architect and preservationist Thomas Johnson purchased the building and began restoration immediately. In addition to St. John's Restaurant and St. John's Meeting Place, the St. John's building houses fine retail shops and luxury apartments on the floors above.
The daily menu highlights the abundance of each season with precision--whether it be fruits & vegetables picked earlier that morning at local farms, fish flown in overnight from all over the country or the finest meats imaginable. At St. John's, you can be confident that the offerings are the best of everything.
Located next door to St. John's Restaurant, St. John's Meeting Place opened in the Spring of 2004. Expect the same quality and attention to detail, as St. John's Restaurant in a more casual atmosphere. Meeting Place cuisine is Chef Lindley's unique approach to traditional bistro fare. Dining at Meeting Place can be as simple as a plate of stellar meats and cheeses--or as extensive as a full course dinner paired with exceptional wines.
