Thursday, August 6, 2015 - by Gail Perry
FIVE, a restaurant with a new concept, will be opening on the ground level of the 1 North Shore condominiums at 200 Manufacturer’s Road, Suite 101. The business will be based on “keeping things simple and doing those things well,” said Chris Eddings, one of the owners. The restaurant in Chattanooga will be the fifth one in the chain; others are in Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Athens, Ga. and Knoxville.

 

The restaurant group M.L.E.

based in Destin, Fl., also owns a Gulf Coast seafood business and will fly in fresh seafood every couple of days, said Mr. Eddings. The menu will consist of five entrees that will rotate, five appetizers, five brands of beer and five of wine. A typical selection of main courses will be a choice of a cheeseburger, a rib eye steak, pan seared chicken, the gulf catch of the day and shrimp and scallops.

 

Embargo ’62, a Cuban cantina and rum bar will be opening August 8. It is in the space formerly occupied by Brix Nouveau at 301 Cherokee Blvd. Because it is located below apartments with limited parking, the restaurant will supply valet parking. There will be a full menu of Cuban food and 60 different rums from all over the world. There will also be eight different beers on tap and 10 bottled beers available. Lunch and dinner will be served starting at 11 a.m., seven days a week.

 

Brian Hennen is opening a “retro arcade” The Coin-Op at 233 East M.L.K. Blvd. occupying a small, 500 square foot space with an occupancy of 49 and just 15 seats. It is located across the street from the Bessie Smith Hall. This will be a family friendly place with pinball machines to play for 25 cents, and a small menu of five items. There will be milkshakes and floats and a modest canned beer selection. Chattanooga Police Officer John Collins, speaking on behalf of Mr. Hennen, told the board that he has had a business relationship with his family for years, and that he will do a good job.

 

Hal T. Hobbs is opening J&B Bar and Grill at 2407 Glass St. in the space previously occupied by Pinky’s Bar & Grill. Beer. Food will be served and parking will be available in nearby lots. On weekends there will be a D.J.
