BROAD STREET GRILLE INTRODUCES NEW CHEF, NEW MENU AND NEW EXPERIENCES
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (April 12, 2012) -- Broad Street Grille (BSG), located in The Chattanoogan, Chattanooga’s only AAA Four Diamond-rated full-service hotel, announces significant changes at the restaurant, including a new chef, new Spring Menu, two new promotions that will change weekend dining in Chattanooga and beautiful décor enhancements.
“We are very excited about the positive improvements at Broad Street Grille,” said Rick Shell, director of food and beverage. “Chef Andrew Millsap is an extremely talented chef who is passionate about his work and we are delighted that he will be serving as the chef of BSG. We are also looking forward to welcoming locals to the restaurant to try our new weekend offerings, Steak Nights on Friday nights and Date Nights on Saturday nights.”
Chef Drew is committed to working closely with local farmers and purveyors, such as Signal Mountain Farm, Eagles Rest Ranch, Link 41 Artisanal Sausage and Niedlov’s Breadworks, in order to provide diners with the freshest produce and products available. All of the dishes at Broad Street Grille are made from scratch and most highlight local products.
Chef Drew, who has lived in Chattanooga for the past 15 years, has spent the past five years receiving incredible on-the-job training at Broad Street Grille. He has served as a banquet chef and sous chef at the award-winning restaurant. Before joining BSG, Chef Drew worked at St. John’s and Mellow Mushroom restaurants in Chattanooga. Chef Drew specializes in Regional Southern Cuisine and showcases prime meats, sustainable seafood, house made pastas, signature side dishes and rich sauces to offer a delectable contrast of flavors and textures.
