This 48-seat brewpub features at least seven house brews on tap — along with an occasional guest beer. The pub fare accommodates both meat-lovers and vegetarians. Save room for the house dessert — ice cream made with malt from the brewer’s Nitro Porter.
This offshoot of Louisville’s only Spanish restaurant De la Torres, La Bodega offers a tapas-only menu of hot and cold items in a cozy space next door to its Highlands progenitor. Appetizer-size portions of roasted red peppers and eggplant, mussels picante and other traditional dishes allow for easy mixing and matching.
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.
