Community Pie Opens Jan. 14; Glass Street Lounge To Debut

Thursday, January 3, 2013 - by Gail Perry

A new restaurant is opening in downtown Chattanooga on Jan. 14. Michael Lewis and Taylor Mayfield Monen, own two other local restaurants, Urban Stack and Taco Mamacita. Their newest venture is Community Pie. It is located at 850 Market St., site of the original Market Street Tavern. The space has been totally remodeled and will now seat 90 customers. It has a total occupancy of 129.

Tina Mayfield, who has been involved with the other two businesses for over 10 years, told the City Beer Board on Thursday morning that the company has recently made some management changes and that the general manager from Urban Stack will now fill that position at Community Pie.

The bar manager from Taco Mamacita will also move to the new restaurant.

Community Pie will serve Neapolitan-style pizza and will have a full bar. Hours of operation will be Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. On Friday and Saturday it will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. The bar will remain open after the kitchen closes and appetizers will continue to be available. The restaurant will offer no delivery service.

The beer board unanimously voted to issue a beer license for the new restaurant/bar.

A permit was also approved for a new sports bar, Glass Street Lounge, located at 2302 Glass St. Chattanooga Police Officer John Collins, along with several board members, expressed concerns about issues that occurred at the previous bar operating in that location. They asked Tyrone Brumfield, owner of the new business, about his plans to control illegal activity in the bar and parking lot, controlling noise and keeping the neighbors happy.

Mr. Brumfield told the board that he wanted an opportunity to try. He has had an association with the surrounding neighborhood for 44 years and knows most of the people there, he said. His business will target older customers, 35 years and up. There will be a buzzer on the door in an effort to keep out troublemakers and a security guard stationed in the parking lot. He said that he has plans to work with the police so it won’t get out of control.

Commissioner Forestine Haynes cited the revitalization efforts on Glass Street saying that she wanted any new business to fit into the new plans for the area. Mr. Brumfield assured her that he will join the association and will operate an upstanding establishment. He agreed for all employees to be trained in procedures of selling alcohol responsibly.

A mini-market located next door will have a menu available at the business and will sell food from that neighboring store. The bar will be open from Thursday through Monday from 4 p.m. to 12:15 a.m. and will have a seating capacity of 97. A license to sell beer was approved for the new bar.
