7 Spots to Cure Crazy-Ass Pregnant Cravings

View as Map

A baby bump is the new black this year—everyone from Kate Middleton to Kim Kardashian to Jimmy Fallon's surrogate sported them. So Eater Louisville is sending some love the expectant momma's way with suggestions for how to wine, dine and wait the long nine.

From pickles to potato chips to paint chips—what everyone doesn't get that?—pregnant women crave it all. The reasons for the longings aren't entirely clear, but when a pregnant woman tells you she needs a super spicy snack, you better find one before she smothers you with her big belly. Fortunately, these places have just the thing to keep your pregnant pal pleased— at least until she has another craving (in which case, refer to the other six locations on the map).

Know of a great restaurant to quell a crazy craving? Leave it in the comments.
