Celebrity chef Alton Brown will visit Chattanooga this fall, and he’s asking locals for a little help before he arrives.

Brown is encouraging locals in each of the 28 cities on his Eat Your Science Tour to offer “gustatory guidance” ahead of his visit. Locals can submit recommendations for coffee, breakfast, late-night snacks and anything else they think Brown should eat while he’s in the Scenic City. 

Suggestions can be submitted to Brown’s website or by using #ABRoadEatsCHA on Facebook and Twitter.


From his website:

I have consumed more doughnuts, tacos and burgers than you could ever imagine, and … I’m back for more. Since all of your suggestions thus far have been so spot-on, I’m bringing #ABRoadEats back yet again, as I am going on the last leg of my Eat Your Science Tour this fall. For each city I’m scheduled to go to, I am seeking your native advice on where to get the best-brewed coffee, casual lunches and late-night grubbing spots for after the show.

Brown said he will tabulate the votes each day and make his picks from the suggestions.

“Everyone loves telling out-of-towners where to eat,” Brown said. “Typically, we choose one coffee joint, one breakfast (or doughnut) stop and a lunch stop. Then, after the show, we’ll hit a late-night place.”

Eat Your Science will be at the Tivoli Theatre Nov. 19 at 7 p.m.

Admission is $39–$125. Tickets are still available here.

The author of “I’m Just Here for the Food” and the host of “Good Eats” will display his science-based cooking skills combined with elements of audience participation during his Chattanooga show.

Brown—a Marietta, Georgia, resident—is known for “Good Eats,” which ran for 14 seasons on Food Network and Cooking Channel. The show won a Peabody Award in 2007, and in 2011, Brown was awarded the James Beard Foundation Award for Best TV Food Personality. His Mr. Wizard meets Julia Child style has appealed to audiences worldwide.
