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.
The Seelbach’s more casual restaurant offers a breakfast buffet every day as well as a la carte options and lunch with local ingredients. Try the Kentucky Benedict — a regional twist on the traditional egg dish.
