Thursday, May 6, 2021

A new restaurant, Zaya 1943 Korean BBQ, opened at 300 Cherokee Blvd. on May 2.

 

The business received a beer permit at the city beer board meeting on Thursday.

 

The large restaurant with an occupancy of 220 has fire tables where customers cook their own food.

 

The Chattanooga Marriott Downtown, 2 Carter Plaza, also was given a license to sell beer at multiple restaurants and bars in the hotel.
