Erik and Amanda Niel’s sister restaurant, Easy Bistro & Bar, opened in 2005 in what was formerly the world’s first Coca-Cola bottling plant. Inspired by classic French fare and the fresh flavor of his native New Orleans, Chef Erik Niel’s restaurant is a bistro reimagined for Southeast Tennessee – blending a modern, ingredient-focused menu with upscale comfort food and impeccable hospitality. The restaurant has a nationally recognized wine and craft cocktail program, and is one of the only raw bars in Tennessee that features seafood from all three coasts.  His menu at Main Street Meats follows the same approach of rustic seasonality representing all local and house made products to include Bacon, Sausage, Sauces, Charcuterie, Lunch Specials & Local Cheeses.
