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.

Anonymous asked: Hello! I love your blog and I really love the idea of you changing its name to louisvillenoms. So cute! I was hoping you wouldn’t mind recommending a restaurant for a kind of casual dinner on Friday! Myself and a few friends are going out, two of us don’t drink, and we’re hoping to get some ice cream on Bardstown Road afterwards. We’re hoping to go easier on our pockets, too. Any suggestions?

Thanks! I’ve pretty much made the decision to do it. It’s catchy! 

I love it when people ask me for dining out suggestions! If you’re looking around Bardstown Road: 

  • Louvino has small plates. Not SUPER cheap but super hot right now. 
  • If you don’t drink, Ramsi’s is a good place with a big menu. You can also sit outside!
  • Joy Luck is my favorite Asian place in the city. Also a great patio. 
  • Looking for something VERY cheap? Baxter has tons o’ pizza places and Bunz Burgerz. Deeeeelish and inexpensive. 
  • Gralehaus is one of my favorite places in the entire universe, and it backs right up to Holy Grale

Thanks for the question! 

chairman-meow-and-cat-benatar asked: How excited are you for ROUX to be opening up on Bardstown Rd (near Bristol)? Personally, I hope it fills the void that Coachlamp left 3 years ago...

RIDIC excited. NOLA is my fav and the chef’s a good buddy. We’re actually hitting the soft opening so I’ll be sure and tell everyone how it is!

Anonymous asked: You been to Louisville Coffee Company yet? It's a brand new coffee shop in Jtown. They sell sandwiches and baked goods from other local businesses, but they're working on having their own bakery soon.

No! I’ll have to check them out for sure, because I always love when new stuff goes into parts of town that aren’t NuLu or the Highlands. Not that anything is wrong with NuLu and the Highlands of course!

My good friend Will has some questions about Baxter Avenue’s Pizza District. You should probably answer them. (x)

Help a Sister Out

Y’all know I love hearing from you. I’ve had this blog since before I started writing for an actual living, so it’s near and dear to my heart, as is the wonderful band of followers and friends I’ve collected through the years. 

So here’s the thing. I’m going to try and delve even more into the Louisville area food scene. I want to write about more foodie news, more new restaurants, more exciting business. And I need your help. 

If you have tips and tricks, ideas, inside information, stuff you want to tell me about the food scene…please, please do. You can always use the handy-dandy ask box OR you can email me: elizabeth@louisville.com, I’ll be happy to keep you anon if that’s something you’re worried about. 

Also, side note. I’ve been thinking of changing the title of this blog to “Louisvillenoms” instead of epicuriouslouisville. My instagram and my twitter are both under Louisvillenoms. What do you think?

Love love,

Say farewell to Taco Punk, one of the most controversial and divisive restaurants in Louisville. 
Full disclosure: I never had a good meal there, and neither did anyone who ever told me about it. I wish them the best, but with all the issues the business had from the beginning, it was only a matter of time.

Anonymous asked: Have you ever eaten at Cafe 360?

Yes, but it’s been years. I like Cafe 360 ironically. It’s open like, all the time, service is almost always bad, I like hookah, they have this horrible slushy cocktail called the “adios m*therf*cker” that I find ironically good. 

Man that makes me sound like such a hipster. I went mostly before I turned 21, does that make it better? 

Anonymous asked: Did I see you out last night?

That, of course, depends where you were. I was definitely out last night (green and blue stripey dress, tall hot blonde, tiny hot brunette, and handsome fashionable gentleman in tow) but since you’re anon…I don’t know. 

Anonymous asked: Do you know if Highland Morning has lost their liquor license? I was there with friends earlier and all the liquor cabinets were covered up and we couldn't get mimosas. The server wouldn't elaborate.

I literally drove past Highland Morning this morning, so you probably heard my embarrassing music blasting the Highlands. 

This certainly bears investigating. Any of my other followers have any news? I’ll make it my business to snoop around a little about it.
