A Day in the District: Graduation Edition

It’s that time of year again, when family and friends watch their loved ones walk across the stage. Graduation is a wonderful celebration for everyone, and The District in Bearden has just the right spots to make that special day perfect.

Food is by far the best thing that brings family and friends together. What better way than to go to one of the many delicious restaurant choices offered by The District? There are two restaurants we have in mind that will fulfill your craving on graduation day.

First you should consider Bistro by the Tracks. Bistro embodies an inviting atmosphere with a diverse wine list. This casual and elegant spot has multiple gluten-free options for those who are interested. This restaurant is “Knoxville’s answer to metropolitan dining”.

If you and your group are in the mood for southern cuisine, The Grill at Highlands Row is a great choice for a high-quality steak and seafood dinner. The Grill at Highlands Row serves all natural grass-fed beef, along with prime cuts and premium selections. Their bread comes from local bakeries and their local cheeses are from Sweetwater Valley. Happy hour is from 5-7 p.m., just in time for dinner after graduation.

Because graduation is such a large event with many people celebrating, reservations are appreciated in The District.

Other than food, gifts are fun too, right? What better way to honor your graduate than to have his or her diploma custom framed by Bennett Galleries?
