Eater Louisville is here!
Like many of the restaurants we cover, Eater Louisville focuses on what's fresh and local, providing a modern take on traditional dishes (you'll have to supply your own exposed brick and reclaimed barn wood interior though). From the latest NuLu opening to special menus and tastings to another NuLu opening that happened since you started reading this sentence, you'll find wall-to-wall coverage of the local restaurant and bar scene, replete with original reporting, reader tips and a roundup of what the rest of the restaurant world is talking about.
Eater Louisville joins the Eater family of sites, including Eater National, New York, Chicago, LA, SF, Miami, Austin, DC, Portland, Dallas, Houston, Boston, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Denver, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Maine, Charleston, and Seattle. Along with Derby City, Eater's launching sites in Minneapolis and San Diego today too. So we're in good company (haha Lexington!).
A little about me, Eater Louisville editor, Zach Everson: while Derby brought me to Louisville, its restaurant scene is what kept this lifelong East Coaster here (yes, Mayan Cafe is that special).
My journalism debut was a front-page exposé for my elementary school's newspaper on Hailey's Comet (spoiler: it comes back). It was the most technical piece I've published. More recently, I've braved gladiator lessons in Rome for Air Canada's in-flight, indulged on a Ritz-Carlton–sponsored junket to China for BlackBook and gorged at the Paula Deen Buffet for Louisville Magazine (spoiler: I won't be coming back). I'm also the editor-in-chief of Louisville.com. And I like to drink.
That sums me up, but now let's talk about you.
While Eater Louisville is your source for anything and everything worth hearing about in the Louisville foodscape, we can't do it without our readers! Hear about another Fourth Street Live restaurant closing? Tell us. Notice an eatery hanging the health department's C of shame in its window? Email us a photo. Catch a local college basketball coach fornicating on the floor of a Frankfort Avenue Italian restaurant? We want to know about it. Nothing is too small, too juicy or too strange. After all, we want to keep Louisville weird too.
Meanwhile, we'll be doing our best to give you all the news on restaurant openings, closings and other happenings, while also rounding up the best of the food media, independent blogs and national scoops. So keep in touch—but not in a Bobby Petrino kind of way. Send us the scoop via our tipline, firstname.lastname@example.org. Giddyup!
