A new Southern-themed vendor called Cinco Entrees is scheduled to open in the River Market’s Ottenheimer Hall on Feb. 1. Self-proclaimed "redneck chef" Travis Meyer ("if Kenny Chesney could cook, that would be me") said he plans to keep his menu simple.

He'll have five entree and five side options every day. Entrees will be dishes like smoked beef brisket, pan-seared pork medallions and grilled tilapia. All come with a cornbread muffin, bread 'n' butter pickle potato chips and a choice of a side from the likes of Cajun-sausage baked beans and pan-fried sweet potatoes tossed with turnips and purple onions. For dessert look for pan-fried Honey Buns. A flavored sweet-tea bar is also planned.

Meyer, originally from Carlisle, is a graduate of Pulaski Technical College Arkansas Culinary School. His restaurant experience spans from cooking at the Chenal Country Club to waiting tables to tending bar. More recently, Meyer has been self-employed, working as a real estate broker and operating a landscaping business, but since May 2011, he's been catering and tweaking the menu for Cinco Entrees. He joked that he gained 10 pounds to the mission of creating the perfect fried chicken recipe.
