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.
Charcuterie Board – HenHoc
HenHoc boasts custom charcuterie boards with all accoutrements to make your night super easy. If you want to build-your-own board, you can do that too -- with all local items! Cheeses, in-house charcuterie, hummus, pasta salad, and homemade dips and sauces. Everything you need for the ultimate adult snack night.
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.
Late Night Tacos – CJ's Tacos
Set up a rom-com viewing party featuring a spread of potato, Korean BBQ, buffalo chicken, and steak supreme tacos from CJ's Tacos! Open until 11pm on Friday & Saturday for those late-night cravings. Call CJ's at (865) 770-5999 to place your order from their menu. Pro tip: ask for them to bring it out to the valet parking area, so that you don't even have to get out (available certain times of day). Oh Knoxville, you spoil us.
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.
