Thursday, November 9, 6 p.m.: Book signing with Paula Johnson, author of Lost Restaurants of Knoxville. Over the past 225 years, Knoxville dining has come full circle — from early taverns and saloons to upscale continental cuisine and back to the roots of local eating experiences. Greek immigrants Frank and George Regas founded the legendary Regas Restaurant, which operated for 90 years, spreading culinary influence throughout the entire city. Early country music stars frequented Harold’s Deli while visiting the city to perform on Tennessee’s first live radio shows. Guests from around the world sat 266 feet in the air at the Sunsphere Restaurant, a fine dining establishment run by the Hardee’s Corporation during Knoxville’s World’s Fair. Discover these and many more fascinating stories as author and historian Paula Johnson dives back in time through the stories of the city’s great restaurants.
