Popeye's?

Actually, the house-made hot sauce at Milkwood made a nice spicy meal of my fried chicken. Not just straight heat (not a fan), but it was a smoky type of hot sauce.

RE: Louisville Dining
I'm not sure who here really knows what hot chicken is, other than DHC. It is an iconic Nashville dish that is just now getting served around the country. It is f'in good. If you have never been to Prince's put it on your bucket list. The hottest is too hot for me.

Well isn't this a crazy coincidence. I didn't even know hot chicken was coming here. Just been craving it. Sweet deal that I'd check out tomorrow if I wasn't busy...

I mean, do those lucky 100 even plan on having an anal lining at the end of the year or do they just accept that they will involuntarily poop from time to time like an old porn star?

No I don't think I have. I've heard of it but I don't remember eating it. Jenna wants to try that Joella's this weekend. Hopefully it's not a madhouse.

Too late for this year but you will have to remember this for next year. The lamb sandwich at the Ky Lamb Producers booth in the KY Tent is to die for. Not the BBQ, the smoked and sliced lamb. MMMMMMFUKNGOOOOOD.

I've never liked lamb. We used to smoke a leg of lamb every Easter. Sliced and served with mint jelly. I don't even know why I'm planning on trying this burger.

RE: Louisville Dining
Brickhouse last night--
Good happy hour appetizer and beer discounts. Pretty good selection of beer on tap for $3/16oz. We got soft pretzels and chicken bites. No complaints. The bison burger and Cajun seasoned tots were excellent. One of the better burgers I've had in a while. I recommend it.

At Joella's Hot Chicken now. Ordered the white meat quarter at their hottest heat level. Red skin potato salad and black-eyed pea salad on the side. They're turning people away 2 hours before close. They're out of 2 sides so I'm assuming that's the issue.

RE: Louisville Dining
The chicken was really good. I got the hotter which is their hottest of four levels. Afterwards I read they have an inferno level also. If you like spicy, I wouldn't hesitate to get that. Their hotter should be manageable by anyone that likes spicy. Really good flavor. Moist and flavorful. They have really good and somewhat different sides. The potato salad and black eyed pea salad were both very good. Only one pickle chip came with the quarter chicken so I'd recommend extra. There are some kinks that need to be worked out. It took a little while to get our food, had to wait on silverware to wash, they were out of ice in the machine, and they were out of two sides. They came to our table and gave us all a free meal to compensate. I'd recommend it.

RE: Louisville Dining
I ate at Joella's a couple weeks ago and at Grind on Saturday. My first time for either.

We got 'Ella's Fav' spice level and it was really hot. Now we like hot food and know what hot is, and we were asking each other if they got the heat level wrong because it was difficult to eat(and because they got a couple other things about our order wrong). The food was all pretty good though. Prices weren't too bad at all. All the staff was friendly and helpful. The place was super crowded and like DHC said they still weren't able to handle the business. Soda machine was flat, water was perpetually low, order took a long time, not enough tables so people were standing everywhere and crowding up the place, and they still hadn't received their liquor license so the nice little beer list was useless. Good food though.

Grind was good too but not worth the price imo. I got the green chili burger and had some of the wife's bacon cheeseburger, with brussel sprouts and fries for sides. They were good burgers, but not worth 13 bucks each. Add the 6 dollar beer and it was 20 just for me. I liked the crispy sprouts. Crowd was pretty sparse for 7 o'clock on a Saturday night. Friendly staff. I heard they're moving to NuLu soon and I'm sure they'll fit right in there. My 6 dollar Five Guys burger on Sunday was just as satisfying.

Never been to Eiderdown. Good looking duck on the sign. German food?

Yeah me too. It still had a good flavor I thought, but it was so hot that I couldn't eat more than a few bites at a time before needing to take a break and blow my nose. lol

Ate at Artesano Tapas on opening night last night. Very attractive restaurant and the service was great for opening night. Roast octopus was great. If you're checking out their menu pinchos are skewers and cocas are flatbreads.

RE: Louisville Dining
Ate at Royal's hot chicken last week. Just opened up on market by garage bar.

Really good food! No wait time. Really surprising considering it is downtown and JoElla's is packed around the clock. The chicken is better than Joella's in my opinion. The guy taking my order said it was significantly hotter than Joella's and he wasn't lying. I think they have two heat levels above what I got which was "hot" and I personally wouldn't go any hotter and I appreciate spice. The spicy potato wedges were great. The broccoli and bacon salad was good but probably not something I'd get again. Maybe the best ranch I've ever had and the paprika based Missisissippi Comeback was excellent also. When I go back, I'll compare their black-eyed pea salad with Joella's. If it's as good, this will be my personal go-to for hot chicken!

Well, I know where I'm going for my next business lunch.

Anyone going to attempt to get in to the new Italian place about to open in Norton Commons? It's being done by the same guys who are in charge of Mussel & Burger Bar. Mercato Italiano.

I'd like to go, but imagine it's going to be a reservation/wait nightmare for a while.

I'd like to try it. M&BB is doing it right. When are they going to open?

I know you work downtown. Don't sleep on Against the grain if you haven't been.
