Congratulations to Bourbons Bistro on being named one of the five best bourbon bars in the United States. That’s right, top five in the entire country. If you’ve ever been there, you understand completely. If you have never been there, you need to go soon. This is the bourbon bar that started bourbon bars, and they serve excellent southern food to go with it.
Here’s what Justin Thompson, Editor of The Bourbon Review, had to say about Bourbons Bistro: “Ten years ago, John Morrison and Jason Brauner opened a restaurant whose concept is now one of the most mimicked in trend-setting New York City. Bourbons Bistro’s mission is to make what’s behind the bar the focus, from the décor to even centering the menu with dishes that pair well with their namesake spirit. Their bar is built from staves from Bourbon barrels and acts as the only barrier for patrons as they can gaze at one of the best Bourbon selections in Bourbon Country. Morrison and Brauner are known for selecting some of the best private barrel-select Bourbons available and also have plenty of flight options so folks can easily sample their collection. Bourbon lovers in Brooklyn should thank these guys every time a new “hot spot” opens with an extremely similar feel.” Click here for the entire story.
In addition to being a great spot to pop in for a rare bourbon on any given day, they also have lots of fun events. They have recently hosted Five Whiskeys Worth Stealing with Tom Fischer of Bourbon Blog and Bourbon Through Bluegrass with Whiskey Professor Bernie Lubbers. There’s always something going on at Bourbons Bistro. Click here to see their events on Facebook.
Once again, congratulations to Bourbons Bistro. You’ve Louisville proud, and you certainly deserve the recognition. Cheers!
