    When I attended the 2012 Taste of Louisville, I had a petite pork dish from the Varanese table that was perfectly prepared, well-balanced, and just lovely.

    On Thursday, January 17th, Varanese will offer “The Evolution of Bourbon Dinner” at 6:30 PM. Each course will be paired with bourbons from their partner for the evening, Heaven Hill Distilleries. Bernie Lubbers, a whiskey professor and the author of “Bourbon Whiskey – Our Native Spirit”, will be the special guest speaker.

    Varanese is one of the most popular restaurants in town because, to say the least, Executive Chef/Owner John Varanese knows what he’s doing. Having previously worked at Azalea and the Cardinal Club, he has years of experience running restaurants, and it shows at Varanese. Their New American food is spectacular (have you checked out their current specials?! YUM. www.varanese.com), and Chef Varanese is proactive in using local and organic ingredients.

    Tickets are $49 per person plus tax and gratuities, and reservations are a must. To stake a claim on your seats, call (502) 899-9904.

    This dinner will be spectacular, and it’s a great price. Go reserve your seats now!
