The Villas of Emerald Woods is surrounded by excellent attractions, restaurants and boutiques. It's only right that we let you in on some our favorites.

  • Bradley's Chocolate – The best chocolate in the state. Milk. Dark. White. Chocolate-covered popcorn. Tennessee Walking Sticks (pretzel rod covered in caramel, chocolate and pecans). It doesn't matter what you choose, you won't be disappointed.
  • Taste of Thai – This place has been cranking out the city's best Thai food for years and never disappoints. Try the Pad Thai or Drunken Noodle with some Tom Ka Kai soup. 
  • Holy Land Market – The patrons make a great chicken schawarma or gyro and an even better Reuben. The owners moved from New York to Knoxville years ago and brought their superb deli skills with them. Also, this is the only place to be on St. Patrick's Day.
  • Litton's Market and Restaurant – The Litton Burger and Baby Jane Shortcake.
  • East Japanese Restaurant – Best sushi in Knoxville, hands down.
