Louisville Restaurants

Sun, 07 Jan 2018 23:56:06 GMT

We will be in Louisville for two days to celebrate a special birthday. We don’t care about “fancy,” but we would like to have outstanding food and drinks. The only restaurants we have heard of are Edward Lee’s Magnilia and Milkwood. We would greatly appreciate recommendations for lunch and dinner, including opinions about those two restaurants. Thank you!

Good post for a group of 10

Louisville KY Restaurant Review: Cuvee Wine Table

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 18:21:15 GMT

We had a wonderful time at Cuvee recently. We were meeting our Cincinnati kids in Louisville. So of course we used the excuse to go in a day early and spend the night. We are always looking for an opportunity to try a new restaurant or an old favorite. The only downside is that after a week of caring for two fun but rambunctious grand-kids I've lost track of my notes. We started with an order of polenta fries. I was surprised at just how tasty these were and at the relatively large portion. I had read good things about them in the Louisville HotBytes review. Still, I had some doubts, but MC suggested we try. They were delicious. We followed this with a lamb meatball flatbread pizza. Again, very good. Next we split the veal special. We really enjoyed this dish. Much better than the veal we had when traveling south recently. We probably didn't need it, but we then split an order of crab bruschettea. It was good, but perhaps not as much so as the three above items. On the other hand, we lived for years in the Baltimore area, and find that crab dishes outside of Baltimore area are never as good. We finished with sugared gnocchi served with a chocolate ganache and coffee. We went through numerous tasting flights, working with our excellent server, Jessica. I can't begin to list them all here. It probably would have made more sense to just choose a few glasses to better match our food--but where's the fun in that.

Eat Invasive Asian Carp to Help the Environment

Wed, 25 Jan 2017 22:25:41 GMT

There was considerable interest in eating Asian carp in the Chicago area in 2010. Phillip Foss, then chef at Lockwood but now chef/owner at EL Ideas, contributed a good deal to a thread at LTHForum on his experiences in putting Asian carp on the Lockwood menu. There are big issues of perishability of a bloody fish and yield. Start at post number 54 here: Many of the links in that thread are now dead but these two articles from the period give useful information: A story in dnainfo today on a class at a Chicago middle school where they did eat some carp:

Eastern Kentucky Chili Bun Trail: Corbin, London, Williamsburg, Barbourville et al.

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 20:15:27 GMT

JuneB you inspired a couple days of very tasty chili! Thank you! I rifffed a bit as I rarely cook savoury food to the letter but as you said two teaspoons of chili powder was about right for me, mild-heat but definitely there. l used tomato puree with some ketchup to taste for sweetness. Yum!

It would have been worth it, regardless.

Louisville, KY Trip

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 17:06:09 GMT

Any other thoughts for a single gal diner at the end of March? I saw earlier comments on Hammerhead, Holy Grale, Proof, Wilshire. Looking for mid priced entrees or a couple interesting appetizers in the southern/Mediterranean/American vein. A good bar where I'd feel comfortable sitting is usually best and happy hour deals are a plus. Only a few recent discussions on Louisville then they turn 6 years old. Thanks.

Long Weekend in Lexington

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 19:20:10 GMT

I recently flew into Lexington to meet up with my family during Keeneland and had some great meals Joe Bolongas. I still love it. Bread sticks and lasagna. Malones. My food was delicious and I miss it. Bottomless Lexingtonian Salad and ribeye Tony's. This is the hot place I always see my Ky people tagging in here. I had lamb...cooked perfect. And maybe not life changing but I had to have sunshine chicken salad at raffertys lol Not this time but... I always have loved merricks on the patio Time before I went to a great wedding shower at dudleys

Starving Lithuanian

Sat, 28 Nov 2015 17:17:49 GMT

While searching for Lithuanian food I found this discussion. I grew up in MP too, miss those great restaurants...Palanga, Neringa and Tulpe. I loved Tulpe-the food, the little neighborhood atmosphere. Great to read and think about those days. Going to check to see if AJ meats is still around.may have to take a road trip. Planning on a trip to Weber bakery for the strawberry whipped cream cake.

We're (8 of us) on our way to Nashville for a couple of nights and then Lexington for 4 days. Our driving layover is Carrollton, KY....anyone think of a great place in the general vicinity to eat on a Monday night? Found a few good spots but closed on Mondays.

"Fine" dining in Louisville without the fine dining cost?

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 13:28:57 GMT

Lilly's is excellent and a good way to go, there is also Milkwood at Actor's Theatre which is also a Edward Lee restaurant, Seveche on Bardstown Rd is high end Latin cuisine, Jack Fry's is a great place to go with a long history, Decca and Rye (2 different places) in NuLu, and also The Mayan Cafe in NuLu....
