Downtown Louisville Dinner Suggestions
Trying to avoid renting a car, so try to suggest only downtown locations. Been to English Grill and Vinecenzo in the past. Need upscale, with a kitchen that knows their ingredients. One of the diners has a severe tree nut allergy (pistachio,pecan,walnut etc) and we need staff that is preparation savy.
Can you also suggest if there is anywhere downtown to get smoked turkey? A supermarket?
Jack Fry's at 1007 Bardstown Rd is a little outside the downtown area but worth a short cab ride. First of all, you get a little history - the place has been there since the 1930s. Second, the food is very good. I had the shrimp and grits appetizer which was delicious, and the herb-crusted pork chop main course includes a huge, thick and remarkably tender and flavorful loin chop. I almost always order a steak at a place like this, but the bartender (I was by myself so ate at the bar) said that the pork chop was one of their signature dishes and I should try it. I'm glad I did. I haven't been back to Louisville the last couple of years, but will definitely eat at Jack Fry's again.
