Brand New! 

Red Sauce

14 W Kent St, Chattanooga, TN 37405
(423) 805-4733

After a very short-lived stint as a drive-thru coffee shop, this building on the corner of Kent Street finally found new life recently as Red Sauce, a casual Italian restaurant. This eatery’s aim is on yummy meatballs and craft cocktails with a “Brooklyn-meets-Philly-meets-Little Italy-meets-the 1960s-meets-Chattanooga” approach. Although currently we’re hearing some mixed reviews on the eatery, it’s not uncommon for a new place to need a minute to work out the kinks. Give it a try and let us know what you think!

There are plenty of mortgage programs that offer as little as 3% down on a new home—but by putting less than 20 percent down, you’ll be losing a lot of money in the long run. If you borrow more than 80 percent of the value of your home, you normally have to pay for private mortgage insurance (PMI) to protect the lender.
