From the fronteir taverns and saloons to upscale dining and continental cuisine and a return to our roots of local eating experiences, Knoxville dining has now come full circle over the past 225 years. In a Brown Bag lecture, author and historian Paula Johnson will share stories ranging from the early country music stars frequenting Harold's Deli while in the city to perform on radio shows to the 90-year history of fine dining at Regas Restaurant, to guests from around the world dining 266 feet in the air at the Sunsphere Restaurant. Paula Johnson is the author of Lost Restaurants of Knoxville and the founder of Knoxville Food Tours. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
