A sleek locale and new interpretations of classic Italian are highlights of this chain. It also boasts an extensive martini menu of candy-colored drinks with names like All That Razz and Jolly Rancher.
The ceramic pig outside signals the great pork barbecue inside. A smoked-meat empire in the making and Louisville favorite since 1988, Mark’s barbecue chicken, pork, and spicy mustard-based sauce keep it on the carnivore club’s frequent-visit list. Also, try the onion straws and fried corn.
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.
