SOUP OFF! Six local restaurants will be competing to create the best soup in Knoxville, using at least one local ingredient. Ticket purchases will allow each participant to pick up one 8oz. cup of soup from all restaurants, during the restaurant’s designated soup week. We will send all participants a detailed email with ordering instructions.
Two restaurants will serve soup weekly in the final three weeks of January. Participants will be given a link at the end of the final week to vote on their favorite soup. It is important to note each restaurant's open hours and week of participation in order to plan your soup pickup accordingly. Also, please note the ordering instructions for each restaurant. All restaurants have to-go options to encourage pandemic safety.
We are grateful to our participating restaurants, and encourage you to support them in any way you can!
