Girls' Night In

Girls' Night Out, how about Girls' Night In?! Order up some Downtown Knoxville takeout, reconnect over a bottle of wine, and make memories without any of the stress. Grab your girls and indulge in Knoxville’s tastiest offerings!


Rosé – Corks Wine & Spirits

Let's start with the wine. Bring a dash of summer to your get-together with a bottle of rosé. It pairs perfectly with a fancy charcuterie board, baked salmon, or grilled veggie skewers. Corks Wine & Spirits will help you find whatever you're looking for!

Wine Sodas – Downtown Wine + Spirits

Move over White Claw, there's a new piquette in Downtown Knoxville. Also known as wine sodas, the sparkling piquettes pictured here are a low-alcohol wine with lively effervescence. Downtown Wine + Spirits carries an extensive selection of all types of wine, so grab a few bottles for a flight night.

Brunch – Southern Grit

If you're hosting a weekend brunch, Southern Grit is a fan favorite. The Biscuit French Toast with lemon mascarpone and berry compote is to-die for, as are the Chicken & Waffles, Shrimp & Grits, and the Amaretto Biscuit Pound Cake... maybe heaven is a place on earth? Order online for carryout.

Crêpes – The French Market

Have your girls over for weekend shenanigans and watch their jaws drop as you reveal a smorgasbord of sweet and savory crêpes from The French Market (plus macarons imported from France!). Julia Child who? View the menu here, and call (865) 540-4372 for takeout. They also offer delivery through DoorDash and Grubhub. Pro Tip: These guys are busy and turn off weekend delivery, but takeout orders can still be called in!

Benny's – Ruby Sunshine

We're not done with brunch yet; after all, it's the best meal of the day. Ruby Sunshine's eight glorious benedicts are worth a second take: how about corned beef hash served with horseradish cream, or Gulf shrimp sautéed with pork tasso and creole tomato sauce?! Order delivery through Uber Eats, Grubhub, and DoorDash.

Snack Plates – J.C. Holdway

For when the gang gets the munchies during game night, order up appetizers from J.C. Holdway. With tasty bites like Pimento Cheese with benne seed crackers, Smoked Chicken Wings in Alabama white BBQ sauce, and the can't-miss Scallion Hushpuppies with BBQ onion aioli, everyone will keep coming back for one more crunchy bite. Plus, it just feels fancy. Order online for pick-up.

Sushi – Nama Downtown

Sushi is basically a love language, so show your girls you love them big with a variety of satisfying rolls from Nama. Everyone can satiate their cravings with the Maui Wowie (crunchy shrimp, avocado, spicy aioli), the vegetarian Pina (pineapple, roasted red pepper, cucumber), and other unique flavors. Netflix + wine + sushi = perfect Girls' Night In. Order online for takeout. Delivery is available through Grubhub, Postmates, and Bite Squad

Ice Cream Pints – Cruze Farm

We're rounding out our list with the best part -- dessert! You may have heard, but "stressed" spelled backwards is "desserts," so let's get some of that. Order a Cruze Farm pint for each friend in attendance, because there's nothing better than eating straight out of the carton. You can order online for downtown pickup with curbside delivery available during certain hours.

Dougnuts – Status Dough

Set up an at-home coffee bar for your gals for a special treat — especially when you order up homemade doughnuts from Status Dough! With specialty flavors like raspberry iced, Nutella paczki, and maple bacon, you'll have a spread for everyone to taste something new. Call them at (865) 888-0997 to place your order. Follow them on Instagram for flavors.

Enjoy time & food with your friends.

Whether it's Galentine's Day, themed parties, brunches, just general sanity checks -- nothing brings us together like food.
