Dinner At The Orangery

The Orangery is a legendary French restaurant in Knoxville, TN. We always make plans to eat there when we are in town.

The Orangery story began in 1971 when a young enterprising businessman named Kristopher Kendrick realized that the elegant ladies of Knoxville needed an equally elegant place to enjoy lunch.
As a lifelong lover of all things French, Kristopher named his restaurant The Orangery (after Marie Antoinette’s greenhouses in France)

The Lobster & Mushroom Crepes was one of our top five meals ever!

Throughout the evening we enjoyed performances by Judye Russell Brackner on a Steinway piano in the lobby.

This lovely lady with me is Glo, the manager. 

The building includes other businesses as well as the restaurant. The common area reminds me of a small street in Paris. 

I am looking forward to visiting again when Décor is open for browsing.

The Orangery features a large spiral staircase from a pre-Civil War mansion, marble from Park Junior High School, paneling from the board room of United American Bank and gates from the former Fulton Mansion on Lyons View Pike.

The BCBGMAXAZRIA jacket is from Saks Fifth AvenueI am wearing it with a silver gray long sleeve tee with black coated jeans from Chico's. The Nine West shoes are from Saks Off 5th.

Mr. Mickey and I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Mr. Mickey! You have inspired me to do two things with this post. I will try this "moto jacket" trend that is all over the place and I will put that lobster and mushroom crepe dish on my vacation "to do" list.
