Ruth’s Chris Steak House Opening July 1

Thursday, June 20, 2013 - by Gail Perry

Ruth’s Chris Steak House will be opening July 1 at the new Embassy Suites Hotel located at Shallowford Road and I-75. This restaurant will provide all the food and beverages at the hotel, which opened last Friday. 

The restaurant’s owner, Markham Oswald, told the City Beer Board he had read the beer codes several times and understood them and has already had a TIPS training session for employees. 

The restaurant will be open from 11:30 a.m. through 10 p.m. seven days a week and can seat 280 including the patio.

The Fox and Hen Café Deli moved from Highway 58 to 6219 Lee Highway, Suite 8 three years ago. It is a family owned business and was given a consumer beer license to allow the restaurant to serve beer along with the food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served.

Badal Amin applied for and was given a beer license for his convenience store Kanku’s #9 located at 3440 Wilcox Blvd. Running a similar business at two other locations, he told the board that he is familiar with the Chattanooga beer codes and has five employees with experience at this new location.

State last Saturday, you would have thought the world had forgotten and virtually excused his vulgar rant from the week before.
