Milk And Honey On N. Market Is Expanding; Several Restaurants Have Ownership Changes

Friday, January 21, 2022 - by Gail Perry

Milk and Honey, one of the five restaurants in Chattanooga that is owned by Michael Monen, is expanding. The restaurant at 135 N. Market St. that started as a small coffee shop has become a full restaurant. When it reopens on Feb. 14 in a larger space, it will have both a “grab-and-go” business for quick coffee, and also a full-service restaurant with a bar. Hours of operation will be from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m.

 

The business was approved for a beer license at the Thursday morning meeting of the Chattanooga Beer Board.

 

John McClellan has been a partner in three long time businesses in the area. Mike’s Hole in the Wall, a sports bar since 2008, moved to its present location of 535 Cherokee Blvd. in 2018. Mike’s Tavern, 5211 Highway 153, and Mike’s Smokehouse are both primarily restaurants that have a bar. In 2020 one of the business partners/owners of these businesses died and another went to work for Budweiser, which prohibits employees from owning a place that sells beer, resulting in John McClellan being the sole owner of the restaurants. The ownership change required a new beer license to be issued for each restaurant, which were unanimously approved by the beer board.

 

Levy Premium Food Service Limited Partnership was also approved for a new beer permit that was needed  because of an ownership change. Levy will take over the food and beverage service at the Chattanooga Convention Center that formerly was operated by Chattanooga and Hamilton County. Levy has had a big presence around the state of Tennessee for 20 years and has a good compliance record, said Jinna Burren, an attorney from Nashville representing the owners.

 

Doc Holiday’s Bar and Grill, 742 Ashland Terrace, is also getting a new owner. Dustin Hill is taking over the bar that has a long record of problems with the beer board on multiple occasions. Mr. Hill told the board that there would be few changes in service, and that his goal is to be the cleanest, safest non-smoking bar in the area. When approved for a new beer license, and being warned that the bar is on the radar, Mr. Hill said that he is looking forward to changing its reputation.

 

A name and ownership change for Roger Super Market, 1400 E. Main St., also required a new beer permit which was approved Thursday. This business is a grocery and gas store that sells carry-out beer.
