Dining in at Monnik feels safe and comfortable Wednesday, Mar 24 2021 

Last week, almost exactly one long year since my last venture inside a restaurant, I decided it was time to go back in. Masked up and fully vaccinated, we pulled open the front door of Monnik Beer Co., chose a table, sat down, and you know what? It felt great! I felt ready. You may … Continue reading Dining in at Monnik feels safe and comfortable

V-Grits is head-spinning good, even if you’re not vegan Wednesday, Jan 13 2021 

I had a pit beef barbecue sandwich the other day that was so good it made my head spin. And here’s the kicker: This sandwich was vegan, made entirely from vegetables without a trace of meat. How can this be? This sandwich, so delicious that I can still taste it in my mind’s palate a … Continue reading V-Grits is head-spinning good, even if you’re not vegan

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

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

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

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

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
