February is the month of love, so we’re going to kick off the first of the month with a list of seven of the most romantic places to eat in the city:
7. Jack Fry’s
Jack Fry’s plating and elegance will be center-stage to your Valentine’s plans this year. Tucked away on Bardstown Road, this local legend has been in business since 1933, impressing with Southern meals with classic French influence. Rich with historical flair and Southern Charm, Jack Fry’s is called the “Best Night In Town” for a reason.
If your evening finds you in Downtown Louisville and Italian fare is your desire, Vincenzos is the place to land. This local four-star restaurant creates an experience unlike any other; often times they complete the preparation and plating of your meal next to your table, giving the large dining room an intimate feel. One of the best known romantic spots in the city, if Vincenzos is in your sights, a reservation will be required for your perfect evening.
“What we do is create freshly prepared food: modern variations on classic flavors using traditional french methods. Most of our meats and cheeses are from independent Kentucky and Indiana farmers and our produce– like our menu–is appropriate to each season.” Unsuspecting with a flair of relaxed elegance, this Germantown Gem has a stocked bar and a heavenly menu. The cozy ambiance, “European-inspired comfort food”, and reasonable prices will blow you away this Valentine’s Day.
A converted historical mansion nestled in the East End of Louisville, Corbetts has deemed itself an “American place”; reviews rave that there is no place quite like it. Combine their intimate setting, special Valentine’s Dinner Menu, and select wine list, and a romantic dinner is nearly guaranteed.
Gracing the top of the Galt House, Rivue boasts wonderful views of the Ohio River and Downtown Louisville, with twin revolving floors 25 floors above the city. Offering a 3-course special from 2/8-2/14, you can squeeze a meal in anytime the week of Valentine’s Day. Locally owned, the unique restaurant reaches for a sustainably-sourced and fresh menu.
“Small Plates, Big Wines” is the motto at this intimate tapas style restaurant. With two locations (Bardstown Road and Douglass Hills), there’s no excuse not to try this award-winning spot! Beautiful dining space paired with divine food and wine makes this restaurant an impressive choice for any date night.
With 80% of the menu hailing from 100 miles around the NULU restaurant, Harvest is the ultimate in farm to table dining. Open for brunch and dinner, options are endless. The elegant simplicity of the restaurant allows for your focus to be on the food and your company–which is ultimately what the day is all about.
