Friday, June 6, 2014 - by Gail Perry

Primo Restaurant, a New York styled, neighborhood Italian restaurant, is opening Friday night in the old Greenlife building at 1100 Hixson Pike.

This will be the fourth restaurant that Nathan Lindley has opened in Chattanooga. It will be a full service restaurant and bar serving dinner Monday through Saturday and lunches only on Saturday.

Mr. Lindley told the city beer board that his restaurants card everyone and are careful to not over-serve. There will be no smoking allowed. A consumer beer license was unanimously approved for this restaurant.

Kimberly Rodgers and Valerie Goodman were also given a consumer beer license for Dinky’s Bar and Grill, the new restaurant they are opening at 2407 Glass St. It will only be open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday from 5-11 p.m.

The owners envision it to be a place for people who live in the neighborhood to eat and mingle and will be limited to ages 35 and over. There will be TVs but no live entertainment.

Southern food and burgers will be served along with beer.
