POST UPDATE: Restaurant owner Mike Monen has officially confirmed with Eater that Clyde's on Church will be taking the place of previously planned restaurants Urban Stack and Milk and Honey. Be sure to check back soon for additional updates.
It's been over a year since word first broke about Chattanooga-based restaurants Urban Stack and Milk and Honey taking over the first floor of the two-story brick building located at 1700 Church Street. And there still has not been any movement. But Eater now hears from a trusted tipster that neither will be going in. Instead, it will be Clyde's on Church, a neighborhood bar concept from Mike and Taylor Monen, the same husband and wife team that own the original planned restaurants.
The Monens opened Clyde's on Main in Chattanooga last August. The casual bar and restaurant features pingpong tables, shuffleboard and cornhole, as well as occasional musical acts.
It will also apparently be the only retail component on the first floor, taking up the roughly 7,500 square feet of space. Eater reached out to owner Mike Monen regarding the change of plans, but had not heard back at the time of this posting.
