Though I often enjoy trying the new boutique restaurants in the area, the one I always come back to, and the one that I think of first, is Dudley's. On almost any given evening, I can walk into the bar and have a conversation with someone who does exactly what I do. The menu is varied and creative, always providing a choice of several new dishes and a few tried-and-true ones, and the wine cellar is arguably the best in Kentucky. My favorite dish is one of the tried-and-trues:marchand du vin. It's a filet with a wonderful rich sauce made of butter, red wine and shallots. Add to that the presence of owner Debbie Long, with her bright smile and warm greeting, and it's hard to make myself go anywhere else.
