Miller's Ale House at Northgate Mall will open next Monday after being approved by the Beer Board on Thursday. This is the second Miller's location in Chattanooga.
The new Northgate restaurant's general manager, Francis Gunell, comes from Miller's first location on Gunbarrel Road. Fare is wings, flatbreads, nachos, pasta, seafood, steak, burgers. Miller's is located at 574 Northgate Mall Dr.
The Beer Board voted to approve two more applications, pending action by the city building department.
The restaurant owners have finished and acquired their official certificates of occupancy, but full approval cannot be granted until the building department enters those forms into the city's computer system, Opengov.com. Staff attorney Kathryn McDonald endorsed this method.
The two restaurants are:
Fonda San Jose Mexican Cuisine, located at 401 Market St., which plans to open in mid-December. The menu will feature authentic Mexican food by chef Jose Vasquez, who's been a chef for 33 years.
The location was the former site of Applebee's and has been unoccupied for several years.
Cabanas Night Club and Event Center, located at 1800 Rossville Blvd., will offer salsa dance classes during the week and Mexican food on the weekends.
The Beer Board discussed that the Blue Light has paid its $1,000 settlement for six violations which occurred late last year, and Blue Light is still building a security plan with city police.
The location of the next Beer Board meeting Dec. 15 is to be determined. The usual board room is scheduled to be renovated at that time.
