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.
Have a panini, (the chicken prosciutto comes highly recommended), muffaletta, or custom deli sandwich for lunch and pick up gourmet and international ingredients to make dinner, all in one stop at this little shop in the Vogue Center.
Along with tasty soups and sandwiches, you’ll find delicious sushi rolls and top-notch smoothies, as well as a large selection of low-carb entrées. Try the unique tofu eggless salad, signature Rainbow Rito (a vegetarian burrito) or test from a menu that varies daily.
Bravo serves Italian food in a fun environment under Roman “ruins.” The open kitchen prepares hickory-smoked steaks, chops and whole fresh fish. Try the wood-grilled salmon salad or Sicilian pizza, made in a wood-fired oven.
One of the handful of old-style bakeries remaining, this St. Matthews institution has a soda fountain with homemade brick ice cream and individual ices in addition to a full assortment of pastries, cakes and wedding cakes.
