Louisville's restaurant scene is currently full of stars, but, just like Hollywood, some legendary figures still haunt the local scene. Eater thought it would be fun to collect some now-closed places Louisvillians still recall (and will often use as directional aids, as in "where the old Grisanti's used to be"). Some (like Casa Grisanti) live on in the experience of local chefs like the soon-to-be-Ward 426's Dean Corbett. Others (like Benedict's) became legends in their own ways. Enjoy the trip through Louisville's restaurants of yore. Any additions or observations, maudlin or otherwise, will be welcomed in the comments.
