It’s hard to recall a restaurant that has taken longer to materialize since Nashville’s restaurant boom began in earnest back in 2013, but Chattanooga transplant Milk & Honey will finally open its doors on Friday, Sept. 15.
Located at 214 11th Ave. S in the ground floor of the Gulch Crossing office building, the all day eatery is the third expansion restaurant from owners and Chattanooga residents Mike and Taylor Monen. Their first, Taco Mamacita, opened in Edgehill Village at the end of 2009. Next came Clyde’s on Church, which opened in March of last year. Milk & Honey was originally planned to join Clyde’s in its Church Street home, but those plans were eventually scrapped and a lease signed for The Gulch.
Milk & Honey will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner options similar to the Chattanooga original, along with a full bar, specialty coffee, gelato, paletas and other snacks.
The approximately 5,500-square-foot space is also a major upgrade from the original, featuring more seating and a large covered outdoor patio.
According to signage posted on the restaurant’s doors, hours will be 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 6:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
