This Chinese restaurant has been a St. Matthews staple for years. Traditional dishes, like braised duck web, may be a stretch for some, but the Oriental House beef and Chinese broccoli are also satisfying.
The menu at this Westport-area eatery is heavily peppered with just-like-Mom-used-to-make favorites like meatloaf, pot pie and fried chicken. Try the chicken livers or fried green tomatoes served with plate-scraping “creek” sauce.
This hip new hangout, headed by Michael Paley of Proof on Main, is located in an actual former garage restored to its full vintage glory — except that pizza and beer are served there now. The gourmet pizzas are fired in an 850-degree oven to ensure perfectly charred crust. Other stars on this regularly-changing menu are freshly shucked oysters and country ham sampler plates.
