Lake Life Friendly

Summer is coming to a close and kids are making their way back to school as parents look forward to a more routine lifestyle up ahead.

While the kids may be in school during the work week, weekends are still filled with good weather and fun activities. Many Knoxville locals, and tourists, often find themselves on the boat or by the lake. With Concord only minutes away from our location, we are a prime dining destination for you and your family to enjoy during a lake break or after a day of boating.

Turkey Creek is close by, but you’ll spend more time waiting in traffic than you will enjoying the company and entrée. Lakeside Tavern is also nearby but can be a little too formal for the casual off the lake dining crowd.

What’s left in the area? US! Here at Northshore Brasserie we have both a casual atmosphere that is friendly to our fellow lake-goers while also having food selections that are fresh and filling. Join us on a weekday and enjoy fresh chef specials that are sure to get you in the door! Mondays offer ½ price on select beers, Tuesdays are ½ priced on select wines, and Wednesdays are $1 oysters!

Enjoy a day at the dog park, on the lake or at the docks followed by letting our culinary team bring a little French and Belgian flavor to your day! Summer may be ending, but your options for delightful dining selections and a family-friendly environment has not! Come by and enjoy our restaurant today!

The Best Things in Life are Frites!

Although we are well known for our upscale dining atmosphere, our fantastic daily lunch buffets, and our convenient location just minutes from Knoxville's Tyson McGhee Airport, we are perhaps best known for our French classics and family favorites; thus, our frites!

When you think of French food what do you think of? Baguettes, soufflé, and crepes? For our regulars here at Northshore Brasserie, when they think of French food they think of our infamous steak frites.

Not familiar with steak-frites? We’re more than happy to share our knowledge on one of our most popular side items! Steak-frites translates to “steak (and) fries” in French and a very popular dish served in brasseries through Europe. By many, they are considered a national dish of both Belgium and France.

Our frites are most commonly paired with our Butcher Steak, NY Strip or Filet – just to name a few! If our steak frites alone don’t boost your pallet then our selection of dips will be sure to do the trick. Pair your steak frites with our honey mustard, remoulade, parmesan mayo, rosemary garlic mayo, or curry ketchup and enjoy a wide range of flavors!

Join us for a quick meal at the bar, a casual night out with family, or as your choice lunch venue with a client. Wanting to join us on a weekday? We have great specials that are sure to get you in the door! Mondays offer ½ price on select beers, Tuesdays offer ½ price deals on select wines, and Wednesdays are $1 oysters! No matter what your dining needs, we are sure to have something for everyone in the family!

Trendy Meets Tasty

Here at Northshore Brasserie we take great pride in three things: our French and Belgian cuisine, delicious weekly specials and, of course, our fine dining atmosphere.

Being locally owned and operated, we not only like to support our local farmers by using their produce, but we also like to support local artists! Thus, we invited local artist Emily Key to bring some artistic perspective into our space. Keeping with our farm to table and mission of supporting local, Emily created a chalk wall for us!

Not only did we add a chalk wall to our aesthetic appeal, we have also done other renovations such as, adding new tables, blinds and more! Here at the Northshore Brasserie we strive to always keep both our menu and dining atmosphere trendy and inviting.

We take great pride in being rated one of Knoxville’s best restaurants. Our culinary and service team, upscale dining cuisine and value in our local community sets us apart from the rest. We invite you to join us on Tuesdays for ½ priced wine, Wednesdays for $1 oysters and weekdays for our one-of-a-kind lunch buffet. Not to mention, be one of the firsts to see our new chalk wall!

Close to the Lake!

With our Tennessee afternoons clearing 80 degrees in temperature, many find themselves drawn to refreshing water sources. Whether you are a boat owner, parents attempting to entertain your children, or just a lover of the water - being in close proximity to a lake is always a grand idea.

For many located between Knoxville and Maryville, TN – that water source is most commonly Fort Loudon Lake. Just a few miles from us is Concord Marina, the hub of most lake-goers and boats in the area. Although we are not accessible by water, we are only a few miles from the marina. Our cold local beer selections, in addition to our well-priced lunch buffet, are just a few of the reasons why Northshore Brasserie should be your dining venue of choice either before or after a long day on the lake.

Have the kids with you?  Our relaxed yet upscale dining atmosphere is kid approved! Want to keep enjoying the sun? Our outdoor patio is the perfect place to enjoy some French and Belgian entrees while still enjoying the good weather!

Wanting to join us on a weekday? We have great specials that are sure to get you in the door! Mondays offers ½ price on select beers, Tuesdays is ½ priced on select wines, and Wednesdays is $1 oysters!

No matter if you are enjoying a weekend out on the lake with friends and family or a weekday where you have to wine and dine a client, we here at the Northshore Brasserie are sure to have just the entrée and environment for you!

New Year, New Pairings

Properly pairing your entrée with a glass of red or white wine can take your average meal and turn it into a culinary sensation! While red wine with red meat is a great general rule to follow, here at the Northshore Brasserie we know how overwhelming it can be to narrow down what wine should go with what entree. Below is just a few of our most popular entrée selections and the complimentary wine pairing we recommend!

Chicken - For most poultry dishes, the sauce and herbal flavorings tend to dictate what wine selection would pair best; however, white wine or a dry rosé are good “go to” options.

Lamb Shank – Lamb shank is a great meat selection when you want a robust meal with an abundance of flavor. We recommend pairing your lamb with a full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon or a Spanish Rioja red.

Steak – We have a wide assortment of steaks that vary throughout the year. Should you select a steak entrée, it is always safe to stick with a red wine pairing. The seasoning used will determine which red wine, but you can't go wrong with a good red Bordeaux, a California or Australian Cabernet Sauvignon, a Washington state Merlot, an Argentine Malbec or a Spanish Rioja.

Duck – Pair your wild duck with a Syrah from the Rhône in France, a California Rhone or consider a Washington state Merlot.

Should meat selections not be your first preference, we also have a wide variety of seafood selections such as salmon or trout. As with red meat, fish pairings are also an art.

Salmon – Salmon is much lighter than most red meats, yet heavier than most white fish varieties. With that being said, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon Blanc are the top five complimentary wine selections we would recommend to go with this entrée.

Trout – Trout is a medium textured fish. This means that while it is still flaky, it is a firmer and thicker fish. Look for medium bodied whites with high aromatics and rich full-bodied whites aged in oak such as, a Dry Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, or Fiano from Italy!

Just like a good wine pairing can complement your entrée, we want our fine dining to compliment your new year!  Pairing tips such as these will allow you to take your upscale dining with us to a whole new level. Whether you are looking to impress your date with your pairing knowledge or hope to join us for a work brunch to impress your newest client, we hope this pairing recommendations guide you into a happy new year!

Fresh Fish Specials!

Hump day is Wednesday or the “hump” of the week. This phrase comes from the concept that after Wednesdays, your work week is all downhill from there. You’ve climbed the mountain on Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday is the mark of your week winding down into the weekend.

Wednesdays also mark a special occasion here at the Brasserie as well! Wednesday are our Dollar Oysters Special!

For foodies in the Knoxville area who enjoy fresh oysters, finding a venue you trust can be intimidating. There is also the concern of food-borne illnesses that can result in consuming raw fish. At the Brasserie, our oysters are not only fresh, but, as an upscale dining venue, we ensure our oysters are also well prepared.

Did you know that eating oysters also has health benefits? Yes! Oysters are high in protein, calcium, potassium, magnesium and vitamin b-12, as well as zinc and iron.

Although our entrees are more commonly associated with French or Belgian cuisine, we also take great pride in our wide variety of fresh seafood options and great weekly specials! If you are looking for a fine dining venue that also has reasonable specials, we highly recommend you join us for our Dollar Oyster Special on Wednesdays! Nothing like a good deal and some fresh seafood to ensure both your wallet and pallet are ready to take on the rest of your work week!

The leaves have turned shades and are making their way to the ground as everyone puts away their summer dresses and breaks out their scarves and mittens. 

Here at Northshore Brasserie we keep our restaurant warm and our food hot. We invite you to come in from the cold and warm up with our famous steak frites or a warm bowl of one of our featured soups. Soups are a staple here, which is why you'll always find a chef inspired soup included in our lunch buffet. 

Like most of our food selections, our soups are chef inspired and are always changing. From loaded potato soup to our broth based stews, our soup selections are sure to warm you up while still having an abundance of flavor. One most popular soup selection is our tomato bisque. Pair it with one of our light lunch sandwich options or as a starter to one of our more heartier meat entrees. Featured fall soups are always a hit, from French onion soup to sweet potato bisque, our chefs are always working on providing you with your favorite soups with a splash of culinary creativity!  

Whether you are traveling for work and need a quick but quality place to enjoy a bite to eat or if you are searching for a menu with a flavor for French and Belgian cuisine, we are sure to have the perfect item to hit the spot. We invite you to take off your gloves and settle down with us for a warm soup that is sure to comfort you during this East Tennessee winter!
