Well one place he has to try is The South Side Inn…. good southern cooking.. in New Albany IN, My GF and son ate at a new restaurant tonight, Marrakesh, excellent Arabic food. GF had Falafel said it was great, we also had humus that is to die for with excellent fresh pita bread, the boy had fish in a lemon sauce with a salad and fries and I had a lamb tajine (stew) with artichokes and a salad, it was good… and the bill with 2 sodas, an avocado juice and fresh apple juice was $26.00, can’t beat it. hope this helps
T.J., I know all about Kaelin’s. I used to live two blocks from the place and it was my grandfather’s favorite restaurant. I’ve probably eaten there more than fifty times. I know they claim to have invented the cheeseburger, but truth told it is not as good as some others in town.
Recently, it changed hands from the original owners to a chef who has worked at many restaurants around town. He is talented and should help bring Kaelin’s back up to speed.
just put all your requests for one visit into one thread from now on – list all the things you are looking for in one single post rather than several. Best place for such an inquiry is this forum – "where should I eat"
Thank you all, for the help. And yes, I will have my car with me, and will be the area around Louisville, also.
Anyone who has more help, like your special place in this area, please.
Robin_Hood: I’d got to Kaelin’s for the history. Read the review, and/or do a google on Kaelin’s
The Hot Brown at the Brown Hotel is a good one.
For a burger, I’d go with Bambi Bar over Kaelins. The Granville Inn also makes an excellent burger.
Homemade Ice Cream and Pie is great, and even better since they moved into their new digs in St. Matthews.
http://www.louisvillehotbytes.com will give you a complete list of all the restaurants in Louisville along with reviews and forum discussion.
I realize that this isn’t the type of place that Polish guy is looking for, but no trip to Louisville is complete without a stop at Homemade Ice Cream & Pie Kitchen.
The quality and selection are amazing. The hard part is trying to limit myself to just TWO choices. It doesn’t seem fair that Louisville has Graeter’s and this place.
I went to Louisville back in 2000 for "Thunder Over Louisville", their annual fireworks display (the largest in the USA and not to be missed, if you’re a fireworks junkie). During that visit we had a memorable meal at Cunningham’s (http://www.openlist.com/restaurants-view-cunninghams_restaurant.htm). Although they’ve apparently moved to a new location since I was there, we had great country ham, the prices were reasonable, the walls were covered with Kentucky derby memorabilia, and the wait staff was friendly and loyal (we started talking with the guy who bused our dishes, and he’d been there for 20 years).
Well it also depends on whether you have a car or not… there are a ton of great places, hole in the walls and upscale. are you looking for Southern, American, ethnic… do tell….
Lynn’s is good, but very crowded. It is on Barrett avenue, not far from downtown. For a good breakfast downtown, try Toast on Market street.
Nice places downtown are:
Proof on Main
Saffron’s (persian cuisine)
L&N Wine Bar & Bistro (just out of downtown)
As I said on your duplicate thread, The site full of Louisville restaurant reviews was posted on your request for Seafood. Please use it.
Stephen Rushmore Jr.
Have you tried using the search feature on the Forums or Restaurant section of the web site?
Any kind of good food places, please.
I will be spending a few days, later this month, in Louisville, Ky. and most of the time, I stay at the Galt House, West. This time I was thinking of going to another. I want to be downtown, and some place nice, and new, with everything.
Also, can you help me with great places to eat? Most like seafood.
I have heard of Lynns Cafe, is it great, and where is it?
Will only be there, this time, for 3 to 4 days, and want to do it all.
