Tad’s Favorites, Louisville’s Finest

Published on Nov 14, 2015 at 9:42 am in Fun Stuff.

So, this weekend I decided to do something a little different for my blog.  Let’s lighten things up a little bit.

Living and working in Louisville is often a balancing act of finding time to appreciate the finer points in life while keeping a busy schedule that revolves around rush hour traffic, business deadlines, and other daily responsibilities. The good news is that there isn’t a shortage of ways to enjoy the finer points of life in Louisville. Every inch of the city teems with richness, an exquisite taste of classic, Americana-inspired history, and the possibility for new adventures.

As someone who’s lived and worked in Louisville my entire life, I thought I’d share some of my favorite places in Louisville and shine a light on many of the finer establishments hidden within the city’s bustling streets. These suggestions will be ideal for Louisville residents who are new to the area as well as those who have lived here for years and maybe just haven’t explored every nook and cranny.

For the first installment, it’s time to bring out your inner foodie. Louisville has some of the finest bars and restaurants in all of Kentucky, but three of the finest places to grab a bite to eat include these personal favorites:

Porcini

Located in the historic Crescent Hill neighborhood, Porcini is one of Louisville’s most famous Italian restaurants for a great reason. Well, a few actually. Their appetizers simply cannot be beat—especially the Fritto di Formaggio di Capra, a breaded goat cheese appetizer served with Pomodoro sauce and toasted ciabatta. Their wines are also among the city’s best selections. If you’ve ever wanted to eat from an exquisite menu that includes many fresh, local food options, look no further than Porcini.

Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse

When it comes to a delicious steak, no steakhouse can top Jeff Ruby’s. Being one of two nationwide locations, the Louisville version of Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse offers a menu that perfectly suits Louisville residents who are accustomed to eating right on the waterfront. Ruby’s local menu boasts fine steak entrees and seafood. For first-timers, I heartily recommend the Steak Collingsworth—a Filet Mignon crowned with crab meat, béarnaise, and asparagus. You can also never go wrong with any of Ruby’s fresh shrimp appetizers.

Silver Dollar

The Silver Dollar is a nationwide chain of restaurants featuring food, spirits, and music that serves as a reimaging of a 1950s Bakersfield, California honky tonk. Best known for its down home country menu that’s 100% southern and 100% tasty, Silver Dollar also has one of the best bourbon, beer, and spirit menus in all of Louisville. My recommendation? Don’t leave the restaurant until you’ve tried at least two different types of bourbon.

And that’s it for Tad’s Favorites for today. Stay tuned next time for more of Louisville’s best, brightest, and finest.

Stay classy, Louisville,
