Have you ever had that perfect dining experience? The food may be only a part of it. But it’s a magic, often romantic moment when atmosphere, company, mood, cuisine and maybe just plain luck combine to make a lasting memory. Here, our writers share a few of their own. Consider it an appetizer for Valentine’s Day.
My review of Phin & Matt's Extraordinary Ale from Southern Tier...you won't know if it is indeed extraordinary if you don't read on.
I know the title has something to be desired and can use a little finesse, but this is a continuation of "Coupleville v.4" wherein I asked for suggestions from all of you readers out there for my wife's birthdaypalooza, and in the profound words of Keanu Reeves, "Whoa..."

"I dunno, wherever you like is fine honey,"....An age old answer from girls which is like 'pleading the fifth' when trying to plan a date. You know you're guilty for knowing what you want, but will never admit the truth. From a guy's perspective the decision making is harder than asking the girl out for the first time.

Luckily I have a great gal with a wonderful knowledge of Louisville and Pat's Steak House it was.
When Wild Ginger Sushi Bistro opened just a few doors from Sapporo Japanese Steakhouse in October 2010, some questioned whether that Highlands stretch of Bardstown Road could support another sushi-centered restaurant. So far the answer is undoubtedly yes.
