bar Vetti lands in its new space Wednesday, Jul 1 2020 

I hate moving. I can’t imagine that anybody would really like the sorting, culling, boxing, shifting, trucking and heavy lifting that comes with a move. Now imagine moving during a pandemic, with masks and serious social distancing in a play, and you’ll have some idea what it must have been like for bar Vetti last … Continue reading bar Vetti lands in its new space

We dine well at a proper distance on Selena’s patio Wednesday, Jun 3 2020 

I’ve never been tempted to sample fugu, the Japanese pufferfish whose internal organs are filled with poison so powerful that even a speck left in your sashimi by a careless chef can drop you dead after a few horrifying hours of pain. Plenty of Japanese gourmands will pay upwards of $200 for a fugu meal, … Continue reading We dine well at a proper distance on Selena’s patio

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

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

You can’t beat the pho at NamNam Café Wednesday, Mar 18 2020 

It’s easy to overlook NamNam Café. It’s tiny, you don’t hear a lot about it, and it’s off on a St. Matthews side street. But you really shouldn’t miss it. It’s one of my favorite Vietnamese restaurants, even among a dozen strong competitors. [During the Covid-19 closure of dine-in restaurants, NamNam is offering carryout and … Continue reading You can’t beat the pho at NamNam Café

Agave & Rye brings a new generation of flavor Wednesday, Mar 11 2020 

OK, Boomer, buh-bye. Yo, Millennial, come on in! That’s the sound of generational change on the north end of the Baxter Avenue strip, as the classy Bittner’s furniture and upscale fare of the defunct Ward 426 makes way for the bright street murals and fancy tacos of Agave & Rye. Ward 426, a venture of … Continue reading Agave & Rye brings a new generation of flavor

Pizza, beer, and more at Union 15 in Colonial Gardens Wednesday, Mar 4 2020 

Some say that pizza goes with wine. Some say beer. I’m firmly on both sides of this argument. Want to run a taste test? Let’s head for the South End and check out Union 15, the appealing pizzeria that opened last summer in Colonial Gardens. Colonial Gardens, the historic beer garden on the fringe of … Continue reading Pizza, beer, and more at Union 15 in Colonial Gardens

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

Around the world on a plate at Diamond Street Grub Wednesday, Feb 12 2020 

I’m generally a bit skittish about restaurants that offer a mix of different world cuisines that extend well beyond the chef’s personal DNA. How can one chef master so many culinary arts? So I wasn’t sure what to expect when Diamond Street Grub & Hops came to town last summer: Its international menu draws randomly … Continue reading Around the world on a plate at Diamond Street Grub

What’s a bhaji pav? Honest Indian’s new delights Wednesday, Jan 15 2020 

Way back in 1975, when hardly anyone around here knew what street food was, Vijay Agrawal took his first steps toward culinary success when he added bhaji pav – a popular Mumbai veggie curry dish served with white rolls – to the selection of his outdoor chaat (snack) cart in downtown Ahmedabad, India’s fifth-largest city. … Continue reading What’s a bhaji pav?
