LE RELAIS (Louisville, KY - Dining)
2817 Taylorsville Rd., Louisville, KY
Phone: (502) 451-9020
Type: French cuisine served in a romantic atmosphere
My favorite place to eat is my brother Kevin’s house, but since you probably can’t get a ticket there, and if I’ve got to go out, I like Relais. Louisville is a really good anti-chain town, unlike our brothers and sisters in Lexington (we have fun bashing them, since we’re the little guys over here!) It’s in and old private airport terminal in Bowman Field, it’s French, and it’s really cool. Anthony Dike, the owner and man-on-the-floor, is great, and you can trust him enough to give him your menu and have him order food and wine for you. One of their signature dishes is a veal chop, and it’s terrific. The lamb loin is very good. It’s a great place for a date, a great place for couples, but not a place for six guys looking for a big screen and a sports bar. It’s like being someplace else; it’s not your generic French place in some city. It’s really neat.
