To those just
visiting for the weekend:
What to do while you
are in L'vul? Louisville is a fun town. You’ll have fun hanging out in
the Highlands on Baxter Ave, and in St Matthews on Frankfort Avenue.
Check out the shops Pataya
and General Eccentric on Baxter Avenue. Also try shopping at Blink Boutique in
St Matthews where Lexington Rd and Frankfort Ave come together in the
The best jewelry
place in town is Seng Jewelers at Fourth Street and Muhammad Ali Blvd.
Ask for Barb Eckert. The nearest Tiffany’s is in Cincinnati, about 2
hours northeast of Louisville.
You do not need to
dress up when shopping. Louisville is a very relaxed, laid back place.
For dinner with
your boyfriend, well, Ruth’s Chris is good… for a chain restaurant.
But for the best steak in town with romantic ambiance, try Bucks, a
tiny restaurant you wouldn’t even know was there, at the corner of 5th
and Ormsby downtown. Or for something really special and different,
try Le Roulais French restaurant at Bowman Field small airport.
Somewhere nice to
grab drinks and listen to a piano: Jeff Rubys at the corner of 4th and
Main, connected to the Galt House hotel, if you happen to be staying
there. It’s a fun, upscale atmosphere and I think you’ll really enjoy
weather.com for the forecast. Type in zip code 40202. It is absolutely
impossible to know what the weather will be. A few days ago it was
sunny and 70 degrees. Yesterday it was 40 degrees and cloudy. Today
it’s sunny again and a little warmer.
Going to a Churchill Downs
cocktail party? You can’t go wrong with a little black dress.
Churchill Downs has the reputation of derby fashion, however, and
therefore bright colors are never inappropriate at the Downs. I went
to a day-party there last year in November, and wore green with a big
black hat. Night parties at the downs do not require hats. If you go
to a day-party there, you must get a wide brimmed hat to keep the sun
off your face… and just because it’s the only place to wear a big
brimmed hat and look classy not weird. But for a night-party, no hat.
Knee length or tea length cocktail dress is appropriate in any color.
You are going to
have so much fun!!!
Let me know what
you end up doing. I’d love to hear your reviews of these places.
Heidi's favorite finds:
Corbett's Fine Dining
- 5050 Norton
Healthcare Blvd, Louisville, KY 40241 Ph: 502-327-5058 -
was most impressed by the atmosphere and the service. I felt like I was
dining at the home of a good friend. The food and drinks were top notch,
and I am looking forward to coming back soon.
Restaurant Kentucky food -
upscale southern favorites
found my new favorite restaurant in Louisville. Limestone is elegant and
classy yet warm and inviting. It is southern cooking yet not greasy and
not cliche. Menu items have very interesting, delicious, unique flavors
lobster fumé to
braised beef short ribs.
Vegetarians will be pleased with the salads, soups and specials. On
Mondays, all grilled items are half price. On Thursdays, bottles of wine
are half price.

and the Gasthaus
German restaurants (it's a tie)
surprised German people don't fly over here for dinner at Erika's
new restaurant on Hurstbourne Pkwy at I-64. It tastes better than my
German Grandmother's home cooked meals - and that's really saying
something. Jaegerschnitzel and sausages never disappoint, and the
potato dumpling kartopfelknudeln are a true pleasure. Erika is open
for dinner only.
BUT for a more authentic Deutsche atmosphere, try the Gasthaus on
Brownsboro Road at I-264. Call ahead first since they have true
European hours of operation.
Favorite French Restaurant at Bowman Field
An atmosphere for any occasion, this
restaurant has the warmth of a Parisian cafè, with the elegance of
Louisville's finest restaurants. This ambiance makes it great for a
quiet, mid-week gathering with clients, girlfriends and neighbors
while maintaining the superior level of service and cuisine normally
reserved for special occasions and Saturday night full course
dinners. The crab cakes and crème brulèe won the coveted Best of
Louisville award and the wine and cheese selection is fabulous. I
recommend both the salmon appetizer and entree. I will be returning
for the jazz nights Wednesdays and Sundays- and for the chocolate
mousse. This is my favorite place to go for cheese and wine and
Call for reservations 451.9020.
Favorite Steak Restaurant at 5th and Ormsby
here is the only place I go and don't even look at the other items
on the menu. Try the New York strip. Small, quiet and romantic, you
can go to chains and get the chain-steakhouse-vibe anywhere. But the
ambiance and the service here are uniquely Louisville. It's in the
old Mayflower Hotel in Old Louisville near Central Park.
Favorite Martini and Piano Bar
good wait staff - fabulous martinis. At the corner of 4th and Main
Street, connected to the Galt House. The walls are colorful and
decked out in a 1920's fun spirit. The ahi tuna dish is fabulous.
The Corner Cafe in Lyndon favorite
"please everybody" RESTAURANT:9307 New Lagrange
A great spot in the Lyndon
Area tucked away in a shopping center called The Corner Cafe.
The desserts are fantastic also, made by Desserts By Helen. Try the
Chocolate Truffle Cake and the Key Lime Pie. All of the subs, pizza,
pastas and salads at our table were delightful.
Eva Mae's Creekside on Lower River Road
Favorite Place to Casually Relax by the Water
A wonderful place to sit on the back
porch and have a delicious fish sandwich while watching the water.
"Heidi, I think Tijuana
Flats in Prospect is great for a first date. The restaurant has a
fun, casual atmosphere. They play good music. The food is great and
there is a hot sauce bar to make your burritos as spicy as you like
it." - Sarah P, Louisville
"Hi Heidi, I think your
readers should try The Grapeleaf in Crescent Hill. It has
Mediterranean cuisine that you can't find anywhere else. It's
definitely somewhere I would take a business lunch or a friend for
dinner." - Holly T., Hurstbourne Area
"Captains Quarters is
the only place to go on summer Sunday afternoons for a great view of
the River and a fun atmosphere with good food. I like the Bar B Que
pizza and fish sandwich" - Teddy A., Audubon Park
"Anybody who is moving
to Louisville has to eat the Frickled Pickles at Ginny's Diner on
Frankfort Avenue. It's practically a right of passage." - Kent A.,
Louisville East End
"The Douglass Loop
intersection in the Highlands has everything you need: Heine
Brothers coffee, Graeters Ice Cream and Fat Jimmy's Pizza. Why go
anywhere else?" Kevin S., Highlands
"Basa is always good."
"One of my favorite places
is Another Place Sandwich Shop, at 119 South Seventh St between Main
and Market." Jesse B.

it too early to start talking about Kentucky Derby 2008? Not a bit.
Here is my
Derby hat from last year. I found it online. There are some great hat
shops in Louisville. Most of them are in St. Matthews, on Hurstbourne,
or at the Summitt shopping mall.
If you have not
been to Derby, you must go this year. It is the most fun, decked out,
dressed up, loud, excited, fast paced event you'll ever attend.
Derby is always
the first Saturday of May.
festivities, like Thunder Over Louisville 2008, begin 2 weeks before
Derby. Thunder is also on a Saturday. Thunder Over Louisville is an air
show during the day and fireworks at night.
restaurants fill up FAST during Derby Week. So call now for next year's
