We ate a Toast this past week-end and it had a hip, vibrant, artistic energy with simply wonderful food. The North End Cafe was rather bohemian and kind of had me reflecting on the "Beat Generation." Proof is as cool as cool can get, and Bourbon's Bistro on Friday night is a middle aged drinking man's dream. We found some fantastic mid Twentieth Century furniture on Frankfort and in Old Louisville. Porcini left me cold and uninspired, but over all, Louisville did well! I went to the Pittsburgh - Louisville basketball game on Saturday, and you guys have some rabid fans. Z's Oyster Bar was a bit contrived and the ambiance lacked soul, but the servers were warm and Z's served Bacardi 8! I'm getting primed for my move down on February 1st.

Next time, try Volare for Italian. Also don't miss Varanese in that area. There are simply too many good restaurants to mention. If you didn't care for Z's, I think you will find their new Z's fusion downtown to be stunning in food and atmosphere.

This is one of those threads that just goes to show what you can learn about your home city! I've never been to any of the places mentioned--but I'm printing this post out and the next time I go home--hopefully soon!--I will check some of them out.
Word of mouth is almost always best.

In regard to the Louisville-Pittsburgh game--mate, I can only tell you that basketball is practically a religion, not only in Louisville, but generally the whole region.
You know, most people won't bat an eye if you say that you don't celebrate Christmas; they don't really care if you prefer Mitsubishi over Ford or Chevy; you may not be a blip on the radar even if you say you haven't brushed your teeth in 25 years....but say you don't like basketball, and it will be just like in the movies where the room goes totally still and the needle scratches across the record, (despite the fact that the jukebox plays CD's!)

ok I exaggerate about Christmas, Chevy vs Ford and dental hygiene, but you catch my drift about how seriously we take our basketball! and football is about the same; baseball to a lesser extent.

I myself am a hockey girl, but I digress.....

SOOOOO Jealous that you had tickets for the UofL / Pitt game. If you have an extra ticket next time, give me a ring
