I love home-style, down-home, farmhouse, country cooking, and whatever-you-want-to-call-it-style meals. But sometimes I like to try something different – perhaps a dish from another region of the U.S., or even another region of the world. Often it’s not easy to find something like that when traveling. But if you’re in Sevierville and you’re wanting something out-of-the-ordinary, I suggest Bistro 109.
It’s located two blocks off of Highway 441, behind
the Sevier County courthouse, just over the bridge coming into town. Open for
lunch and dinner Monday – Saturday and from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Sunday, this
full-service restaurant has a really cool vibe with some seriously good
choices. It offers catering and cakes, private dining, evening entertainment,
and heck, the Web site even offers pictures of the interior so you can get a
feel for the relaxed atmosphere. But the food is the reason to visit.
Spanakopita, hummus, goat cheese, lamb, calamari –
and that’s just the appetizers. You probably don’t have a lot of those at the
local diner, but give them a try; they’re really good. They have soups and a
lengthy list of salads and sandwiches, meatloaf, pot pie, pizza, vegetable
plates – just to name a few. If it’s entrees you’re after, you should be able
to find something you like from the pasta, poultry, beef, pork, lamb, duck and
And if that’s not enough, how about weekend brunch? Eggs
benedict, bananas foster French toast, smoked salmon, and omelets are all part
of the delicious list for a leisurely, late-morning meal.
