Serve & Protect

Culinary Partners

Support sustainable seafood during Serve & Protect’s Downtown Dine Around on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, September 20-22.  By dining at our partner restaurants, you can show that what you put on your plate matters. Simply put, people currently eat too many fish from too few species.  So ask your server about what’s on the menu and try something new. You’ll discover savory options that can lead to positive change.  Then unlock the healthy benefits of seafood at home by trying the Serve & Protect recipes provided by Alton Brown.

In addition to many of Chattanooga’s finest restaurants, several area caterers are also participating in Serve & Protect. Discover a new menu item at one of our partner restaurants, or add a sustainable choice to what’s being served at your next event.
