If you're in town for the Derby Festival, you're probably wondering where the best places to grab lunch are. Something light, something that won't detract from the splendor of your dinner reservation. To find out about hours, location, and days open click the link in the heading of each entry. Here are seven of our favorite, essentially Louisville places to lunch:
1. Mayan Cafe
Fresh, healthy and somehow still delicious. The tiny cafe is certainly worth a lunch date.
Lots of delicious local beer and great bison burgers.
Most authentic Vietnamese in town, their avocado milkshake is offbeat and delicious.
Forgot to buy a Derby hat? Go to Oxmoor mall and while you're there, visit this oft-overlooked gem. Affordable Asian food: we love their Firecracker Chicken.
A great place for a large party with lots of picky eaters. Down home country cooking without the greasy spoon.
Located in the Butchertown Market, this soup-and-sandwich shop is adjacent to Cellar Door Chocolates, which provides a perfect excuse for dessert.
7. Oishii Sushi
Large, Americanized sushi rolls stuffed with tons of fresh seafood. Big, colorful and splashy food.
