Parlour’s pizzas hold up all the way home Wednesday, Sep 23 2020 

I’ve been doing my small part to keep local restaurants alive during the pandemic by giving them my takeout business, but there’s a problem with that: I really hate eating lunch on my lap in the car. I want to take the food home, dammit! I want to plate it nicely and enjoy it in a … Continue reading Parlour’s pizzas hold up all the way home

Carry out your Guinness, and dinner too, at Irish Rover Wednesday, May 27 2020 

Some people crave potato chips or chocolate. The other day I started craving Guinness stout. The more I thought about that dark, malty, bitter-chocolate beer with its creamy head so thick that you could float a farthing on it, the more I wanted a pint. Thanks to Kentucky’s newly enlightened alcohol laws, a call to … Continue reading Carry out your Guinness, and dinner too, at Irish Rover

Jake and Elwood’s masters the Chicago pie Wednesday, May 20 2020 

Jake and Elwood’s opened its Chicago-style pizzeria in Clifton at 11 a.m. Monday, March 16. Does that date sound familiar? Yep! That’s the day that Gov. Andy Beshear told all the state’s restaurants to put a halt to dining-in at 5 p.m. “We are mandated to close for dine-in at 5 p.m. today,” the restaurant … Continue reading Jake and Elwood’s masters the Chicago pie

Soft shell crab tacos lure us to Red Hog Wednesday, May 13 2020 

It all started, as things so often do, on social media. I was browsing Instagram, tapping through a lot of the local restaurants that I follow, when a simple white-on-black text image caught my eye. “Taco Tuesday,” read the post from Red Hog Artisan Butcher. And then the clincher: “Fried Soft Shell Crab Tacos!” “Taco … Continue reading Soft shell crab tacos lure us to Red Hog

Fork & Barrel’s brunch soothes and satisfies Wednesday, Feb 19 2020 

There is something indulgent about brunch that we don’t often experience at even a lavish dinner. It’s not necessarily a matter of gluttony: I’d rather choose from a selection of chef-created morning and midday dishes rather than dive into a gigantic buffet spread under plastic hoods known as sneeze guards. Ick. No, the joy of … Continue reading Fork & Barrel’s brunch soothes and satisfies

Cozy comfort and creative cookery at Hearth on Mellwood Wednesday, Nov 20 2019 

The bright mustard-yellow exterior paint job that made Bistro 1860 (2013-2018) stand out is gone, replaced by tasteful off-white with light sage-green trim. The huge 54-unit Cruvinet wine dispensing machine that made L & N Wine Bar (2004-2012) special is gone, too, a victim of disuse. But the latest occupant in the historic 19th century … Continue reading Cozy comfort and creative cookery at Hearth on Mellwood

Lola’s Kitchen, Filipino food for a “Happy lunchtime” Wednesday, Nov 13 2019 

If language reflects culture, then it’s fair to assume that the people of the Philippines love to eat. Tagalog, the Filipino national language, is the only language I know with a special greeting, tucked between “good morning” and “good afternoon,” to wish people a good lunchtime. So let’s say “Magandang tanghali po” to Lola’s Kitchen, … Continue reading Lola’s Kitchen, Filipino food for a “Happy lunchtime”

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
