Located in a historic building on the lively corner of Third and Market streets, this downtown bistro offers an array of salads and sandwiches for lunch and an eclectic selection of upscale American favorites for dinner.
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.
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 pre- and post-arena event dining selection expands. The Troll Pub offers everything game-goers expect like burgers, pizza and chicken wings, plus a few unique items like “hog wings”— bone-in pork tips — and the “troll leg”— a smoked turkey leg.
