‘We don’t have to be a restaurant’: Restaurants in Tennessee say they don’t need to be ‘restaurants’ to remain profitable

Chattanooga, Tenn.

— A Chattanooga restaurant is taking aim at what it calls the “chattanooga restaurant” stereotype and offering a “no frills, no frills menu” that includes “a fresh salad, a chicken sandwich and a salad bar.”

In a statement on its website, the restaurant, Noodle Bar, says it’s the first in the Southeast to offer a full menu with a variety of ingredients.

It says that the menu includes salads, soups, sandwiches and desserts.

It also says the menu is available on-site at the restaurant.

The statement says that customers who have reservations can pick up their food at a bar near the restaurant and can choose their own salad bar, soup bar and drinks.

The restaurant will be open through Friday, June 18, and will also have a limited selection of alcoholic beverages.
