Satisfying traditional Tuscan dishes are served in this interesting (and supposedly haunted) Old Louisville building. Dine inside or on the romantic patio on a lovely summer evening, There’s no extra charge if the ghosts want to share your penne alla Lorenzo or Valpolicella.
Bistro 301: an upscale casual dining in the heart of downtown Louisville. Located on the corner of third and market streets near the KFC Yum! Center and the Kentucky International Convention Center. The menus feature fresh local and regional ingredients served in a relaxed and friendly environment. Full bar service offered, with an extensive wine list, twelve beers on tap, and the best Kentucky bourbons. Available for events.
The use of an exceptionally obscure wine term (it’s pronounced "bricks" and refers to the sugar content of ripe grapes at harvest) hints that the proprietors of this wine bar know their vino. Interesting wines and a short bistro-style menu make it a welcome suburban alternative.
For a real slice of Louisville life, this weathered greasy spoon at the corner of Brook and Burnett is the real thing. Neighborhood denizens drink coffee and chow down on burgers and breakfast until the wee hours (the joint is open 24 hours). If Louisville is home to a budding Charles Bukowski, there’s a good chance he’s sitting at their counter right now, recovering from last night’s excesses.
