Steakhouse Five by Mitchell Murphree

Steakhouse Five, a new high-end steakhouse concept, has leased 3,552-square-feet of space and will open at Fountains at Gateway in early summer, announced developer Scott Graby, president of Hearthstone Properties.

Created by Mitchell Murphree, executive chef and owner of Five Senses, his new venture will feature premium quality meats and local produce as well as fresh seafood.

“My grandparents raised livestock, my family ran a country ham business, and I was a member of the UT Knoxville meat judging team. You could say an appreciation for meat has been with me since I was born,” Murphree said, adding Five Senses recently celebrated its 15th anniversary.  

Steakhouse Five will be located on the ground floor of One Fountain Plaza, the four-story office building at Fountains at Gateway.

The restaurant will seat up to 100 guests inside as well as 20 on the adjoining patio overlooking the main pocket park. Designed in a modern Southern theme with elegant historical accents, Steakhouse Five will feature a sophisticated main dining area, private dining room and a conservatory-style bar with a full-width glass door that opens to the patio.

The high-end steakhouse restaurant is slated to open in mid-2019. More information can be found at www.facebook.com/SteakhouseFive.

Another new concept is coming to town with Crumbl Cookies, which Crumbl will deliver cookies to your home warm.

In what sounds like a dream come true, Crumbl offers two staple cookies -- chocolate chip and sugar -- with a weekly rotation of other flavors.

In other cookie news, The Cookie Store in Stones River Town Centre (a.k.a., The Mall) announced it is moving to center court in the former Best Buy Mobile and will be adding “The Coffee Creamery” new concept store.

The Coffee Creamery will serve a full line of hot and cold coffee drinks along with 12 flavors of dipped ice cream and fresh real fruit smoothies.

The current Cookie Store will be rebranded into “The Big Twist Pretzels,” which will serve fresh hand rolled pretzels, pretzel bites, and specialty pretzels along with sandwiches, personal pizzas, nachos, hot dogs, popcorn, and chips.

Speaking of moving, Boro Town Cakes is moving from its long time location on North Church Street, owner Lisa Rouse said.

The bakery is moving next to Boro Town Cakes Too on West Lytle Street, which is a larger space for baking wedding and special occasion cakes.

Boro Town Cakes Too has served grab-and-go sandwiches, salads and other lunch fare since October.

Munch has opened on Medical Center Parkway in former Tasty Table and Artful Doughnut space.

Munch sells healthful, clean protein-rich prepared meals for a bargain price. Each meal includes a high-quality protein, grain or carb, and vegetables that are packaged for quick warming in adequate portions to meet nutritional needs.
