This new bistro, opened by the people who brought Louisville the Nachbar, features American comfort food with European flavors. Think pork ribs braised in sauerkraut and the duck fat popcorn appetizer is quickly becoming legendary around town.
The attraction here is the view from a spectacular perch on the 25th floor of the Galt House’s West Tower, courtesy of two revolving dining rooms that provide a panorama of both sides of the Ohio River. The dinner menu incorporates influences from classic American and European cuisines.
This casual restaurant has an assortment of Cajun/American entrées, from the good-old Hot Brown and bacon-wrapped scallops to jambalaya. The menu changes seasonally and live music is offered on some nights.
This cafe serves breakfast ranging from healthy (egg white and veggie frittata) to indulgent (fried chicken and waffles.) For lunch, it serves sandwiches, pizzas, and a daily changing quiche selection.
One of the handful of old-style bakeries remaining, this St. Matthews institution has a soda fountain with homemade brick ice cream and individual ices in addition to a full assortment of pastries, cakes and wedding cakes.
