2 New Restaurants Opening On Main Street

Thursday, July 16, 2015 - by Gail Perry

Two new restaurants are opening on Main Street, and owners of both came to the City Beer Board meeting Thursday morning to apply for a beer permit.

Miguel Morales, who owns Tremont Tavern and 1885 in St. Elmo, is opening a third business, The Feed Table & Tavern Co. at 201 W. Main St. This restaurant will meld the other two restaurants that have both been successful, he said. It is built in the old Chattanooga Feed Company building that has been renovated to retain the feel of the old, open warehouse that it was originally. The building is spacious enough to have a large kitchen and there is adequate parking. The food will be traditional Southern cuisine in addition to favorites from the Tremont Tavern. The restaurant will be very kid friendly, having games for children to play while the adults enjoy dining. "It will be a good space for the entire family," said Mr. Morales.

Aug. 1, a practice opening for families is planned. A fundraiser for the Tennessee River Gorge Trust will be held Aug. 3 and the grand opening will be Aug. 4 at 11 a.m. 

Main Street Meats, 217 E. Main St., opened four or five years ago as a butcher shop. Recently three new partners have joined the business. One is Eric Neil, who also owns Easy Bistro and Bar. The business is being expanded and the space is being renovated to add space to seat 40 customers. It will continue to be a butcher shop but food will now be served and a bar is being added. Hours will be from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday through Saturday. 

O’Dell’s Grocery, 3010 Cummings Hwy., was given a consumer and carry-out permit for the store that has been in business for 70 years and which now has a new owner. The business moved across the street from the original location.

Brainerd Express, a convenience store at 5924 Brainerd Road was also approved for a carry-out license.
