    1. Here's a place in particular that I'd like to try. See link below. Let us know what place(s) you try.
      L& N Wine Bistro

      1. Me too! Also an Air UPSer in Louisville for a few months on and off.
        Any suggestions are very welcome since I have had my share of Cheddar's and similar chains. There must be Chowhounds in Louisville, so all replies are welcome.

        Places that I have enjoyed so far include:
        Martini House - Midwest chain restaurant with acceptable Italian food.
        The Fish Market - part of the same chain as above, but it seems that they have fresh fish daily. I had a good gumbo there and a nice salad. My Co-worker had a great fish stew that almost rivaled SF cioppino.
        McAllister's Deli - right across Air UPS. Great lunch spot if you need lunch in a hurry.
        Uptown Cafe - nice restaurant on Bardstown Rd

          Also, any recent reviews for Azalea, Jicama Grill and the Napa River Valley Grill?

            Thanks for the info! The Hot Brown is on my list.

            I've been to McAlisters. It was pretty good. A heck of a lot better than Subway!

          2. I assme you've already had the original hot brown at the Brown Hotel?

            1. Maido on Frankfort Avenue. Japanese. Some sushi, but mostly small dishes of great variety, priced to order several at once. Freshly made and delicious.

                We were in Louisville over the weekend for a soccer tournament, and while the team went to Chili's I went to Maido. Many interesting selections, and well priced. The hamachi collar and the grilled eel were great. Everything else was good or better. Certainly worth a visit if you're looking for something a bit off the beaten path.
