Nephews Bar And Grill Opening On Dorris Street

Thursday, March 17, 2016 - by Gail Perry

Owners Martels Carter and Kimothy Ross have a vision for their new restaurant, Nephews Bar and Grill, 4380 Dorris St.


Mr. Martels said they will be selling great food with a wonderful atmosphere and nice, cold beer to go with it and will have a jukebox. He said they will have the best fish in town on Fridays.


 It will open at 10 a.m. during the week staying open until 11 p.m. On weekends the restaurant will be open until 2 a.m.


He told the City Beer Board that the neighborhood “is like the wild west, around us,” so he plans to hire a security guard to be at the front door to check IDs and to watch the parking lot. A beer license was given to this business.

Deal With The Graffiti Vandals

I travel to other neat old cities and don't see nearly the graffiti vandalism as in Chattanooga. Why do we allow one or two or three repeat vandals to mar our venerable Walnut Street Bridge, the pillars to the Holmberg Bridge, the remodeled Chief John Ross Market Street Bridge, the walls along our multi-million-dollar Riverwalk, our sidewalks, street signs and our old limestone ...
