4. Try El Camino, Atlantic No. 5 or Jackknife Café
The Louisville food scene is booming like crazy. Try one of these hot new restaurants: Jackknife Café in the Butchertown Market (we recommend the prosciutto and goat cheese sandwich with fig spread), El Camino on Bardstown Road, (the cocktails are rumored to be amazing) and Atlantic No. 5 (kale sorghum salad!).
5. Go to H&M or Nordstrom Rack
H&M just opened in Oxmoor Mall and Nordstrom Rack just opened in the Shelbyville Road Plaza. There is now no reason to ever leave Louisville. Get your pocketbooks ready and get a cute new outfit to go dancing in!
