Grind Burger Kitchen Success Leaves No Room For Truck

One of the best burgers in Louisville is movin’ on up! If you’re not familiar with Jesse and Liz Huot, then now might be your time to eat one of their fabulous Louisville burgers. They started their operation as the Grind Gourmet Burger Truck back in 2012. The food truck would camp out at the Douglass Loop Farmers Market, and other special events around Louisville serving amazing burgers. The Grind team partners with local and regional farms to bring the highest quality burger to the streets. Continue reading “Grind Burger Kitchen Success Leaves No Room For Truck”

How Many Tables? That Would Be 10 Tables

Ten TablesWith somewhere around ten new independent Louisville restaurants opening in the last 6-12 months, our “foodie” (I hate that word) scene is expanding at an incredible rate. Some questions have been posed as to whether or not these chefs and restauranteurs will have equal shares in this market, or if some of these places might flicker out. I can confidently say that after personally eating at seven of these ten restaurants, I just don’t see any of them getting taken out by another. The list of new Louisville restaurants is diverse, and the competition, in my eyes, is not really competition at all. If you produce a great product, you will have repeat customers and market share no matter how many restaurants there are. Three of these new chef-owners want to prove it to you by creating a dining club in which they invade each other’s kitchens and collaborate on a special menu. Continue reading “How Many Tables?

Much Needed Attention at Grinstead and Lexington

For some 7,000 – 10,000 daily drivers it’s the way to work, the way home, or some sort of cut-through from I-64 to their next destination. But I think we can all agree that it’s the ugliest way to enter one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Immediately off of I-64 from the Grinstead Drive exit, you cross Lexington Road to be greeted by a raggedy gas station and its 4-story tall empty “sign”. Continue on to find and old “luxury car lot” that has less than one tenth of the surface parking that the neighboring restaurant, KT’s has (which never made sense to me), an old pet shop that looks like it could collapse at any moment, and a beauty salon that has been empty for at least five years. All of this weirdness I just described is surrounded by beauty. Attention is now being drawn to the fact that the Jefferson Development Group, headed by Kevin Cogan, has decided to buy the majority of the real estate parcels that comprise this awkward, pie-shaped city block. There is quite a bit of speculation about what changes will be made, but our hope is that the less-than-sexy gateway to our city will be made better. So let’s define “better” by discussing the problems. Continue reading “Much Needed Attention at Grinstead and Lexington”

Best Tacos in Louisville

Eating a delicious taco is one of my favorite things to do. You may have noticed a growing population of taco shops around Louisville in the past couple of years. I suppose people finally realized that we have more pizza restaurants than people. Louisville’s taco trend has actually worked out great for taco-lovers like myself, because there seems to be friendly competition between restaurants to create the best tacos in Louisville. They just keep getting better! Below are my favorite tacos in Louisville. Some are down right authentic, and others are a bit creative, but one thing’s for certain: they’re all ridiculously delicious. Continue reading “Best Tacos in Louisville”
