Blacksmith's Moving From St. Elmo To 809 Market

Thursday, February 21, 2013 - by Gail Perry

Blacksmith’s is leaving its longtime home in St. Elmo to move downtown.

The restaurant was required to re-apply for a beer license because it is changing locations. Owner Kelly Smith told the City Beer Board the business is moving to 809 Market Str with expectations of opening March 4.

This is in the previous location of Market Street Tavern, and will now have a capacity to serve 100 people.

The restaurant will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m.-10:30 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays and until 12 p.

m. on Friday. Brunch will be served from 11 a.m.-3 p. m. on Sundays and dinner from 4 p.m.-9 p.m.

The Den, a tavern/grill located at 6306 Highway 58 was described as a neighborhood bar by Charles Six who came to the beer board meeting. The establishment has had a beer permit from the county, but was required to apply for a city license which he was given, because the business has been annexed into Chattanooga.

Kanpai of Tokyo represented by William Miranda Alcazar was also granted a license for the hibachi style restaurant that has the capacity of 200, and is located at 2200 Hamilton Place Blvd. A new application was needed because of the change of ownership.

Or, would it be more productive to badger the child over and over again for the sins of the child's g-g-g-grandfather who died 150 years ago? Would burning the personal effects of the grandfather ...
