Places to Eat in Louisville, Kentucky
Louisville, Kentucky is known for horse-racing and bourbon but did you know that there are a lot of great restaurants that have delicious food? I’m only listing my top 5 favorite places to eat in Louisville, Kentucky that you should try out if you are ever visiting.
Eiderdown Germantown: German/European/Southern food is on the menu with a great beer selection. Cozy, dimly-lit, with exposed brick walls and rustic, rough-hewn tables and a long, shiny bar. The daily specials are very interesting and creative (daily beer cheese, daily stew, daily cut of prime local beef prepared according to the chef’s whim and the local ingredients that look the best). Prices range from $8-$14 with the most expensive entree being less than $20.
Taco Punk: According to their website, Taco Punk specializes in “quick service gourmet tacos.” Plus they state that all ingredients are made fresh and in-house, and they use “locally raised pork and beef, all-natural Amish chicken, and sustainably caught seafood.” Sounds great huh? Their prices are very reasonable ranging from $8.95 for the ameriCano punk platter which features Grass-fed ground beef in spicy tomato sauce to $11.75 for the bar-beer-Coa punk platter featuring smoky grass fed beef braised in goose island beer with grilled onions & peppers. Yummy!
Hillbilly Tea: Louisville’s eccentric tea cafe serving up their own brand of fresh crop organic teas & Appalachian cuisine. The menu features a creative display of delicious local products! Everything from smoked catfish w/ sweet potatoes hashbrown greens & sweet dream drizzle for $12 to grilled flank steak w/ radish potato salad, wilted spinach & spicy red pepper sauce for $19.
Rivue: This is an upscale restaurant and lounge featuring panoramic views, sophisticated décor, and twin revolving floors. The contemporary cuisine is just as amazing. If you are looking for a special meal, then this is the place for you. Entrees start at $20 for mozzarella chicken wrapped in Kentucky country ham with a redeye gravy demiglace and go upwards to about $45 for a Dry aged rib Eye with Herb compound butter, braised greens and pickled onions.
Melting Pot: This is an upscale restaurant that is a unique, interactive dining experience! Melting pot is a fondue restaurant where guests can enjoy a choice of fondue cooking styles and a variety of unique entrees, salads and indulgent desserts. It’s up to you. Tailor your visit with a four-course dining experience including cheese fondue, salad, entree and dessert. The Melting Pot is truly amazing for any occasion. We frequent this place quite often and I’m always looking for great Melting Pot deals on my site.
