Damn hadn't heard of it. Looks delicious. Couldn't find a menu but the pictures on their website are phenomenal.

I know I've said it before, but I recommend hitting The Village Anchor for Sunday brunch sometime. It runs late. Good diverse menu and good food. $1 mimosas on sunday brunches too.

Never fucked one, but I'd try it. If they're good enough to eat, they're usually good enough to fuck, ya know? hahaha.

RE: Louisville Dining
Ate a few meals in Cincinnati this weekend. Highly recommended Orchids, nada, and Taste of Belgium.

Also recommend checking out the newest bourbon distillery, New Riff in Covington. They're still a couple of years from releasing their first batch of Kentucky bourbon, but have aged gin and a loaner batch called O.K.I. that I enjoyed. They're also doing this drinking vinegar called a shrub that was pretty outstanding. Tours are free and include samples.

RE: Louisville Dining
Yeah, our first plan was to actually hit up Nashville until we discovered that the NHL All Star game was there this weekend and hotels were ridiculous. Cincinnati, for a plan B, turned out pretty awesome. They have at least three craft breweries now in the area (Sarawit and I went to Madtree's 3rd birthday bash, which was a good time), a solid dining scene, and on most weeks a decent selection of arts and activities to check out. We happened to go up on a weekend where there wasn't much happening, so I think it would have been even better on a normal weekend.

That math doesn't add up. We went this week as well. I'm not going to tout it as the greatest thing ever, but the price she quoted you seems WAY off. All the tacos were $3.50-4.00 each. My beer was $6. So at high-end figures, we're talking $24 for the tacos and $12 for the beers. Unless the kids' fish sticks were $20, that doesn't make any sense.

RE: Louisville Dining
No, but I have wanted to for a LONG time. My wife is terribly picky, though, and every time we look at the menu she can't find something she'd want to try. Same with Edward Lee and 610 Magnolia (his is worse because it's a prix fixe).

Funny story... we went to Orchids in Cincinnati as I mentioned in a post above. VERY upscale, to the point I felt like I was underdressed in my nice jeans and button-up (should have planned that portion of the weekend getaway a bit better). I decided to get the traditional prix fixe and my wife wanted to do the same, but didn't like the traditional menu or the veggie menu. She ultimately opted for vegeterian with a couple of modifications, then promptly sat disappointed with every dish while raving about the samples she took of my plates. This included items like smoked salmon with roe, venison, and other ingredients that would be WAY outside her palette wheelhouse.

In summary, women are weird.

prix fixe

: a complete meal offered at a fixed price; also : the price charged

Learned something new today. Going on 40 and have never heard this term before. I'm seriously behind the times.

Between burgers and venison, I'm reminded of my spring plans. As soon as the weather gets right for them to spring up, I'm going to get some morel mushrooms and sauté them and grill some venison burgers and topped them with morels and Swiss. Any of you ever had morel mushrooms?

Additionally, I'm going to make the decision tonight but I'm probably going to try to get reservations at mercato for this weekend.

RE: Louisville Dining
Prix fixe can be amazingly awesome. Good restaurants and good chef's will do some of their most adventurous cooking in the context of these set-ups. If you don't want another boring steak & potatoes dish, the tour of small plates will almost always hit the spot. It probably costs a bit more than getting the same amount of food from a single dish option, but I almost always go that route if I know the restaurant has a good rep and know/trust the chef in the back will do something I haven't seen before.

One notable exception to this rule: Ward 426. They had an AWESOME sandwich in their prix fixe that was pork belly with boisenberry (??) jam on a biscuit, but the rest was a disaster. The chef and the owners are/were all very well-known in the Louisville food scene, but I couldn't have been more disappointed in my experience.

Prix fixe option at Corbett's is a must for any foodie.

RE: Louisville Dining
My nephew works in the kitchen at Lilly's. I was up in Louisville this weekend and went for a 40 mile bike ride with some friends. After a few beers I went by Lilly's to say howdy to him and they did not give me a second look for being dressed in sweats and helmet hair. We sat at the bar and chatted the bar tender up and my nephew hooked us up with some pimento cheese wontons that he created and they were awesome. One of these days, I am going to have to go and actually pay for something.

Also, the owner came out and chatted with us as well. Nice lady. Was real big in the early days of Louisville's locally sourced food scene.

Best steak I've had, including those prepared/cooked by almost all the steak joints in town. Jeff Ruby's is a close #2 and you can have all the rest.

Corbett's also nails his dessert options. I've never had a dessert on the prix fixe I didn't love. That includes carrot cake, which I generally hate.

You big city folk and your gd endless non-chain restaurant options make me homesick. There are maybe 5 spots here I'd take y'all to without being embarrassed. We've got two above avg steak houses, BBQ smoked by meth-head amateurs, one decent lunch cafe with some Victorian era fuckin ambiance and a top 5 burger spot posing as an overpriced cowboy steakhouse.

Everything else is Dairy Queen or buffet. Even the mf movie popcorn is substandard. I'm surrounded by assholes.

RE: Louisville Dining
yup, got a 2-pack of Barkeep's Friend back when I was doing the cooking in Vegas; gotta dig it out of a box somewhere when we start getting new shit off the registry. We've been using and abusing calphalon non-stick pans for the past few years, so the adjustment to stainless should be fun. We are renting here and the oven (Jenn-Air?) has a convection setting which is awesome, but the induction stovetop is a son of a bitch (that or we are idiots, which is possible since we both grew up using gas stovetops). One burner goes to High heat even on the lowest setting and another burner doesn't go past Warm even on the highest setting. Partly due to that issue, still gonna use a couple non-stick sauce pans, in which I've found no difference b/t brands like Calphalon/T-fal and the higher end All-Clad.
