Great article, Jack, as always, but a couple of corrections and a comment:1) The Highlands Grill building was never a house. It was built and operated by a guy named Hutsell as a restaurant from the start. The lower level was reserved for known customers who would imbibe bootleg whiskey and dance.2) The new restaurant will be The(capital "T")Grill at Highlands Row because a restaurant in Birmingham has assumed the original moniker since the closing of the original.3) Shane Moore, Executive Chef, is indeed the owner---with his wife Susan---of Mancino's, but his claim to fame and his entree to his current position is more relevantly related to his Washington D.C. positions as Executive Chef of both the U.S. House of Representatives and the State Department dining rooms in two different stints. The Moores moved back to Knoxville after 9/11, wanting to raise a family in a safer environment and bought Mancino's which they continue to own. Shane's desire to resume a career as a tour de force in the kitchen led him to The Grill position.Tom Weiss
