CLOSED: Miss Ashley’s Tearoom ordered to close by State Department of Health

A Clarksville restaurant that has been operating illegally in Stacey Steetman’s 10th Ward for nearly a year was closed today by order of the State. The restaurant, which was operated by Anissa Finney-Gold under the name “Miss Ashley’s Tearoom” was in a nondescript residential home, in the middle of a neighborhood at 360 Fantasy Lane, with 100% residential zoning on the property.

The residential kitchen, which functioned as a commercial kitchen selling to-go orders for pick-up/curbside, DoorDash, GrubHub, and other delivery services had never been inspected by the state, as it’s illegal to have a commercial kitchen in those conditions. Conditions which some delivery drivers reported as being “filled with pets”, primarily cats.

According to state, county, and city records, there was no business or tax license on file, and no tax was being paid to the government, despite it being collected by the business. Multiple agencies have now confirmed open investigations into the operations of the business.

This is a developing story. City Council Member Stacey Streetman and Mayor Joe Pitts were both contacted last week about developments in this ongoing investigation, and both refused to comment on anything regarding Anissa Finney-Gold or Miss Ashley’s Tea Room.
