More biscuits? Brunch at Gracious Plenty Wednesday, Sep 11 2019 

Speaking of biscuits, we stopped by Gracious Plenty’s Prospect location on a Saturday recently with our friend Ann, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover its weekend-only brunch menu. Briefly told, the brunch menu offers the usual suspects – eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes and waffles and french toast – with nothing clocking in for more … Continue reading More biscuits?

The wurst is good at The Hall Wednesday, Sep 4 2019 

Many years ago, we were wandering around Europe on a Eurailpass when one of us said, “Let’s go to Munich,” just on a whim. That’s how I found out what a beer hall is, and Oktoberfest, too. Ah, memories. Memories of friendly Germans lined up along long communal tables, drinking excellent beer out of sturdy … Continue reading The wurst is good at The Hall

La Sierra Tarasca’s carnitas warms our hearts Wednesday, Aug 21 2019 

There’s a special place in my heart for Mexican eateries like La Sierra Tarasca. First, and not least, in a time when the president calls our Latin American neighbors thugs, criminals and rapists and orders refugee families separated at the border, it’s time for the rest of us to stand up for our Latinx brothers and sisters, whether … Continue reading La Sierra Tarasca’s carnitas warms our hearts

La Catrina deliciously satisfies our taco craving Wednesday, Aug 7 2019 

While I was binge-watching the Taco Chronicles on Netflix last week, I got to the sequence on carnitas, and immediately realized that I had to get up and go either to Michoacán or, at the least, to a really good local taqueria. Once I checked my wallet, La Catrina Mexican Kitchen in New Albany got … Continue reading La Catrina deliciously satisfies our taco craving

Palatucci’s offers Italian flair with a Bronx accent Wednesday, Jul 24 2019 

A little piece of the Bronx has broken off and come to Louisville, and we couldn’t be happier. Especially since the chunk of Jonas Bronck’s old dairy farm that landed here reminds us of Arthur Avenue, the Bronx’ memorable slice of Little Italy. So say hello to Palatucci’s Italian-American Ristorante, opened last month in the … Continue reading Palatucci’s offers Italian flair with a Bronx accent

Burger Girl fills our diner needs whenever we’re up Wednesday, Jul 17 2019 

I got the jingle “two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun” stuck in my head the other day, and there was no way to stave off the crave. So I blasted off to get one. No, not Mickey D’s. Better. The double bison burger at the new Burger … Continue reading Burger Girl fills our diner needs whenever we’re up

The 502 Bar & Bistro, a jewel in Norton Commons Wednesday, Jul 10 2019 

For any chef, an invitation to come cook at James Beard House in New York City is an honor devoutly to be wished. To get there before turning 30 marks a young chef as a rising culinary young gun. Now meet Louisville’s Chef Ming Pu, 29-year-old executive chef at The 502 Bar & Bistro: This … Continue reading The 502 Bar & Bistro, a jewel in Norton Commons

Pho Phi gives your money’s worth Wednesday, Jul 3 2019 

You say “pho,” I say “fuh.” Which is the right way to say it, anyway? Inspired by a couple of bowls of pho, er, fuh, at Phi Pho (“Fee Fuh”), a new, fast-casual pho shop in St. Matthews, I dug into the roots of pho, and – somewhat to my surprise, since I thought I … Continue reading Pho Phi gives your money’s worth
