Recs for a conference in Knoxville in April

Big Bad Voodoo Lou | Jan 21, 201402:11 PM     8

I just found out I might be attending a conference in Knoxville in April, so I was hoping for some good general restaurant recommendations. I've never been there before, don't know where I'll be staying yet, and probably won't have a car.

How is Knoxville as far as getting around town easily? As a college town, is there a good public transportation system, and are there hip/funky neighborhoods with lots of awesome restaurants clustered together (possibly near a hotel that would host a conference)? What about markets with lots of good food vendors concentrated in one place?

I'm from Florida, and I'm always on the lookout for the best burgers and sandwiches, gastropubs (even though I don't drink), and any local specialties and landmarks that everyone tends to agree on. So help me out, Knoxvillains, and thank you in advance!
