Contemporary American

Bourbons Bistro, 2255 Frankfort Ave., 894-8838, $$$, Full Bar. With a menu that is bourbon-inspired and Kentucky-accented, Bourbons Bistro is a winner whether you belly up to the bar or proceed to the long dining room at the back. Executive chef Jeff Bridges, who took over from longtime chef Michael Crouch, has done a fine job of maintaining the style of his predecessor while adding his own personal stamp. (Reviewed 7/3/13)

El Nopalito, 2319 Brownsboro Rd., 893-9880, $, Full Bar.

Ramiro’s Cantina, 2350 Frankfort Ave., 895-3333, $, Full Bar. You could call Ramiro’s “son of Sol Aztecas,” as owner Ramiro Gandara, who was a partner in this outpost of the local Sol Aztecas mini-chain, runs it on his own now. The menu features familiar dishes — tacos, burritos, quesadillas, enchiladas — at family-friendly prices. (Reviewed 11/7/12)

Steakhouse

Pat’s Steak House, 2437 Brownsboro Rd., 896-9234, $$$$, Full Bar. Bearing the name of its owner, Pat Francis, since 1976, Pat’s could easily pass for a diorama depicting upscale Louisville dining in the Eisenhower era. The bill of fare, too, is retro, heavily based on steak and potatoes and traditional trimmings served family-style. (Reviewed 11/21/12)

Four Sisters, 2246 Frankfort Ave., 384-4262, $.

Hillbilly Tea, 120 S. First St., 587-7350, hillbillytea.com, $. Hillbilly Tea brings together a cup of hillbilly, a healthy heap of hipster and a pinch of fun to serve up an international blend of country cooking with locavore meats and produce and plenty of tongue-in-cheek Appalachian shtick. It recently added a full bar to its offerings. (Reviewed 5/8/13)

MilkWood (at Actors Theater), 316 W. Main St., 584-6455, $$$, Full Bar. Chef Edward Lee’s popular new restaurant MilkWood at Actors Theatre reminds us of Chef David Chang’s acclaimed Momofuku eateries in New York, Toronto and Sydney. Named after the Dylan Thomas play “Under Milkwood,” it has a personality all its own, and that personality is clearly defined by Lee’s inspiration and style. (Reviewed 3/13/13)

Proof on Main, 702 W. Main St., 217-6360, proofonmain.com, $$$, Full Bar.

Relish, 1346 River Rd., 587-7007, relishlouisville.com, $$, Beer, Wine. This trendy spot represents the re-entry into the Louisville dining scene of Susan Seiller, who owned and put her stamp on the popular Jack Fry’s restaurant from 1987 until 2008. Chef Jack Beeson’s concise lunch menu is affordable (nothing over $10) and focused on appetizing yet healthy fare. (Reviewed 1/2/13)

Rye on Market, 900 E. Market St., 749-6200, ryeonmarket.com, $$, Full Bar. The food and cocktails at this hip, popular NuLu joint are amazing. That menu is brief, limited to four or five small plates and as many mains, plus a short list of bar snacks/starters, meat or cheese plates and fresh oysters; it’s largely locavore and changes often, taking advantage of seasonal produce. (Reviewed 10/16/13)

Sidebar, 129 S. 2nd St., 384-1600, sidebarwhiskerow.com, $$, Full Bar.

Devino’s, 104 W. Main St., 569-3939, $.

Earth Friends Café, 829 E. Market St., 749-8911, earthfriendscafe.com, $. This NuLu lunch spot opened in the space formerly occupied by The Bodega grocery and café. The menu carries a distinctly vegetarian and even vegan tone, but omnivores can coexist here in virtuous satisfaction. (Reviewed 2/20/13)

FRENCH

Bistro 1860 Wine Bar & Spirits, 1765 Mellwood Ave., 618-1745, $$$, Full Bar. With the help of owners Ron Kayrouz and Terry Fereday, with Chef Michael Crouch (previously of Bourbons Bistro), Bistro 1860 has taken over the space that once held L&N Wine Bar. Crouch is doing a fine job with an eclectic, mostly American menu that offers most dishes in a choice of three portion sizes. (Reviewed 1/9/13)

Chipotle Mexican Grill, 315 S. Fourth St., 584-8606, chipotle.com, $. The 20-year-old Denver-based fast-food chain built about 1,400 units in 43 states before one finally opened in downtown Louisville. It’s for anyone who likes the idea of fast food built on humanely raised, hormone-free “natural” beef, pork and poultry and organic and local produce. (Reviewed 4/17/13)

One of the East End’s hottest upscale dining destinations, Brix Wine Bar offers an inviting menu of American cuisine and about 80 wines on an attractive, international list.
