This unpretentious place will appeal to people who love two things: meat and beer. They cook pulled pork, ribs, chicken, and salmon in a smoker out front and offer a nice beer selection. Don’t miss “Beerhalla,” the backyard filled with putt-putt, cornhole, and beer pong games.
This hip hangout is known for its live music lineup, but just as much care has been taken with the menu. Standouts include House Friez and Totz, (crisp fries and tater tots with several dipping sauce choices) the Z Burger and the Track and Field Wrap with hummus, falafel and tzatziki sauce.
Can’t travel? Head over to this new oriental restaurant in St. Matthews for an exotic meal to take you away. Charim loosely translates to “the table is set,” a welcoming message and dishes are prepared by chef Yeon Hee Chung just like she does in her home.
