Louisville has some really great neighborhoods, from the West Main Historic District to Old Louisville and Portland, the Germantown area is just another addition to this town. One of the best restaurants in the neighborhood is definitely Eiderdown. Here the kitchen serves innovative plates with creative names like the Mayor of Milk Street which is the grass-fed strip loin, a duck confit and pumpkin risotto masterpiece. The drink and draft beer menus change consistently as well, and though many might consider this spot as a German restaurant because of the Spätzel, pretzels and wurst, it definitely transcends that label.
One of the most beloved little holes-in-the-wall within city limits, the Fish House/Cafe Beignet serves some of the best fish & chips in town. Not only do diners find breaded fish, oysters and other treats from the sea, but the New Orleans style Beignets are out-of-this-world. The prices are equally super, a definite treat while in the Germantown neighborhood.
For over 20 years, Mark's Feed Store has been serving Kentucky style barbecue, slathered with its famous secret sauces. These sauces represent many hours of honing the mixture to perfection, and the management is so serious about guarding its secrecy that the recipe is kept in a locked vault. Nevertheless, this winner of the American Royal International Sauce Contest is sold in retail bottles and even served on Papa John's pizzas worldwide. Genuine hospitality and real Southern cooking (with menu items like sweet fried corn and homemade buttermilk pie) keep customers coming back to this Louisville favorite.
A venture by renowned chef Anthony Lamas of Food Network fame, Seviche is the place to go for not only its namesake dish, but for plenty of Latin flavors. Making use of local ingredients, the chefs at this restaurant serve mouthwatering Ceviche like the signature Old Fashioned which is tuna cooked from the acidity in a bluegrass soy, Kentucky bourbon, orange and pineapple brine. Some of the other dishes include plates from around the world as well, with skirt steak and Chimichurri from Argentina, the traditional Paella dish influenced from Spain and veggie chimichangas that hail from the Mexican kitchen. As the menus constantly change, guests can rest assured that they will eat something novel and innovative.
Located on the Bardstown Road, El Camino is a youthful and vibrant place serving some mouth-watering Mexican delights. They whip up some of the best tacos and fillings vary form chicken to beef. They also house an elaborate menu of cocktails and also serve coffee. The place is a must visit for the ambience that it offers, colorful and distinct!
The ambiance inside Za's is more New England than Old South, with it's dark, rich wood and cold stone floor. This makes it less suited to daytime dining (unless you sit outside) than happy hour beer and pizza, the former of which is dirt cheap with several varieties offered. Za's offers the usual Italian fare-pizza, calzone, subs, and salads-and also offers a great selection of toppings. There is live music here sometimes, and on those nights, the bar stays open later.
On one of the most bustling blocks of the always-bustling Bardstown Road corridor, Cumberland Brews serves up tall pours of craft-brewed beer and healthy helpings of Southern-fried comfort food. Brews range from traditional English-style classics to decidedly experimental stuff like a pale ale spiced up with a hit of Yerba Mate. To eat, fried fish sandwiches and cheeseburgers go great with a side of fried green tomatoes. Enjoyment of all of the above is amplified by the fast-paced street scene out front viewable through big picture windows (or through your own two eyes if you grab a table out on the sidewalk).
This all night diner is appropriately popular among late night crowds, including those getting off the third shift and those leaving after last call. It is noted more for its ambiance (Indian decor, hookahs) than for its food (a mix of classic American and Indian cuisine) but there are several tasty dishes to be had, especially the samosas. The decor walks a fine line between kitschy and decrepit and the servers walk a fine line between aloof and rude. But any way you slice it, there is something here for everyone.
Though Sapporo is known for its sushi, the menu varies between many types of authentic Japanese cuisine. Appetizers, soups, tempura, tataki, noodles, salads, desserts, fried rice, and teriyaki dishes, along with the entertainment of their Hibachi grill, represent the variety of a meal at Sapporo. They also offer monthly sushi classes and Make-Your-Own-Sushi on Monday and Tuesday nights.
The dishes at Asiatique Restaurant aren't just pleasing to the eye, the Pacific Rim cuisine has won rave reviews from critics and several culinary awards. The gourmet appetizers, salads, entrees, and desserts appeal to a number of tastes, but seafood and Asian influences are largely represented on the menu. The restaurant's stylish contemporary decor sets the mood for a fine dining experience. Don't leave without a look at the award-winning wine menu. Asiatique caters, and can accommodate on-site parties of up to 60 guests.
This classic Sicilian pizzeria brings you all your Italian favorites, from pizza to lasagna, with some interesting new dishes to try like BBQ chicken pizza. Bearno's also serves a variety of salads, sandwiches, and appetizers for kids and adults alike, such as their "cheese stix." They often post coupons on their website, so be sure to look for them before you make a trip to one of their Louisville locations.
