Sample popular brews like American Pale Ale and Dark Star Porter while watching the brewmaster work his magic at this restaurant and microbrewery with several area locations. Many items on the menu of casual pub fare are made with BBC beers. Popular creations include the pretzel and BBC beer mustard appetizer, as well as the Brewhouse Chili.
Choose one of the inventive (and modestly priced) Asian-inspired entrées, or create your own combination of stir-fry. The new “pick two” menu — including an appetizer and a smaller-portioned entrée — is a great choice for lunch.
This deli brings a Manhattan feel to the Bluegrass. Try the hearty pasta salads with whimsical names like Isabella Tortellini or a New York classic like matzo ball soup or pastrami on rye. Also, see how many celebrities you recognize in the fun paintings on the walls.
Lively Italian dining with fresh-baked focaccia, a generous menu and tables with enough seats for a small army. The Penne Rustica, which features shrimp or chicken, smoked prosciutto and penne pasta baked in crockery with a golden halo of cheese, is a hearty favorite.
