Epicurious Louisville

Louisville Kentucky is a treasure trove of amazing eats. I blog about them here. Y'all pull up a chair and sit awhile.
If you don’t have anything nice to say, drink your brandy and shut your mouth.

Yummies from Hilltop Tavern. Cheap, delicious, fresh, fantastic, and the guys who own it are absolute gems. I interviewed them for a bigger piece I did for Louisville Magazine, and they’re just peachy, definitely the kind of people you want to support. 

We went to Mike Linnig’s last night, and guys, it’s totally fantastic. The portion sizes are phenomenal, the prices are good, and the atmosphere is kind of down-home, easy going, fun. We got way too much food and now my fridge is full of heavily breaded and delicious slabs of fish. Good problem to have!

Also, their cheeseballs are great. Highly recommend. The only thing I didn’t like? They charge for extra tartar. Ridic. 

Time’s running out for you to get your Best of Louisville tickets! Not to talk about the same thing too much, but I’ve been helping plan this event and it’s going to  be one of the best of the whole summer. Come for the food, come for the dancing, come for the awards, come for the fun!
Buy your tickets before tomorrow, because they’re about to go up in price!

Heading to Forecastle this weekend? Here’s what you should be eating.

I’m…not going. I have a team of excellent writers going on behalf of the website, and I’ve got some much needed R&R planned that includes fried fish, Dairy Kastle, dancing my tail off at Seidenfaden’s and church. I might try make it next year as press for the experience. 

BUT! If you are going, here’s a handy-dandy food guide. I highly recommend you spend your dollars supporting local food trucks like Lil’ Cheezers and Holy Mole. Happy Forecastle-ing! 

Beautiful Louisville.

Copper & Kings is opening in Butchertown. Some fun facts:

  • It’s Kentucky’s only brandy distillery.
  • It’s “brandy for bourbon drinkers”.
  • They use something called “sonic aging” that pulses music into the barrels holding the brandy to better distribute the flavors. 
  • They’re making absinthe. 
  • Copper & Kings was chosen as a name because it sounds like a rock n’  roll brand. 
  • They have a fantastic space in front of the distillery with a conversation pit and a reflecting pool that will be used as a space for events, community involvement, and food trucks/pop up restaurants.
  • Their brandy is delicious and STRONG. 

YOU SHOULD GO.
