A Mid Winter Lunch in Downtown Chattanooga TN

5 spice pork belly  public house chattanooga tn restaurantWe have several new Mid-Winter items that we are very excited about, and they happen to come together as an excellent lunch. They're all a little different, pulling in wider influences to spice up our lunch menu. None of them loose that essential Southern quality, however, of being ultra comforting. Next time you come to Public House for lunch, leave your car with the free Warehouse Row valet, slip inside, and leave your workday behind for one meal. These items are perfect for lunching with a friend-- one appetizer to share, a sandwich to enjoy, and a creamy side to savor.

The melt-in-your-mouth pork belly is a familiar flavor and sensation, but the dusting of Chinese 5 Spice gives it a warm, exotic hint you won't find in grandma's kitchen. It comes with Squash Chow Chow, which grandmother would be sure to approve of, and a fresh house-made cracker prepared by Michael Lindley himself. It's the right blend of savory from the pork, sweet and tangy from the squash, and crunchy from the cracker, and just the right size to share without spoiling your appetite for what comes next.

It's got the same filling umami comfort factor as a burger, but it's just different enough for a fun change of pace, not to mention the superfood factor from the fresh fish. We always love to find a new way to approach a classic, and this take on the club sandwich has been a big hit. It comes with fries, but if you want to substitute one of our newest seasonal sides, you're more than welcome to do so.

If you're going to sub in something from the Local Produce and Sides section we suggest the new Sweet Potato and Goat Cheese Gratin. If you already love the Roasted Beets and Goat Cheese that are often on our menu, you'll love this new mix of sweet root veg and mellow, creamy goat cheese. Thin slabs of firm sweet potato are layered with a melty goat cheese gratin sauce that's neither too thick nor too soupy. It's just the right texture compliment to the sweet potato, and balances the sweet and savory flavors. 

After lunch you and your dining companions can have a gentle reintroduction to the outside world. Simply pick up your car from the valet in the breezeway and make your way back to home or the office. One thing's for sure, you'll have both the fuel to power through your afternoon and the kind of peace of mind that only a good meal in good company can provide.

Public House is a great destination to meet a friend for lunch while shopping at Warehouse Row or meeting them after work for a drink at The Social, but we bring the same quality food and friendly service to private events that we host and now Chattanooga event catering as well.

public house chattanooga cateringJust imagine it: Having your wedding reception or corporate gathering in the heart of downtown Chattanooga, just a short distance from hotels where your guests might be staying and there are a lot of fun things to do. Best of all, you can incorporate the food and drinks you love from Public House and The Social.

We can host up to 50 guests in our Polo Room – 75 people if they aren't seated. The Polo Room, named for the previous tenant, is completely separate visually and acoustically from the remainder of the restaurant. It adjoins the main dining room of the restaurant and The Social.

The room can also be divided in half with floor to ceiling curtains for smaller groups of up to 20 people.

It can be a great place for a private party, wedding rehearsal dinner, business luncheon, and other events. Audio/Visual equipment is available for use at a minimal charge, and a private bar can be set up in the Polo Room for a setup fee. Charges are based on food and beverage minimums, and a 20% gratuity is included added. See for more information.

Public House offers a good variety of premium food products served in a comfortable setting, along with fun snacks and small plates that pair well with cocktails, beer and wine. We've recently added gluten free items to our lunch and dinner menus while pointing out which menu items can be made gluten free by omitting one or two ingredients.

At private events held in the Polo room, hors d'oeuvres can be served. Some choices include house smoked salmon, "hot fish" tacos, Carolina-style Quail breast, and angel biscuits with friend chicken. Public House gives you two possible seated dinner menus that include soup and salad, your choice of main course items (salmon, steak, pork, beef filet, Jonah crab cake, chicken, or veggies are a few of the options), and two dessert choices.
