This influential and celebrated Louisville restaurant championed seasonal, local ingredients before it was trendy. The menu rotates weekly, and special three-course prix-fixe meals are available for lunch.
Baby-back ribs, prime rib and house-made desserts are specialties at this Louisville location of the Nashville-based chain. It also has a swanky atmosphere and a conservative menu with everything made from scratch.
Porcini, named for the flavorful mushroom featured in many of its dishes, serves upscale Northern-Italian inspired dishes. Menu standouts include the strip steak with Gorgonzola butter and rack of lamb with bourbon and rosemary jus.
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.
