Louisville Restaurants Open On Monday Evenings

View as Map

Many restaurants shut down on Mondays, as even chefs and servers deserve a day off every once in a while. However, some places (hopefully with wonderful compensation and/or scheduling policies) do offer meals on Monday evenings. Eater has assembled a list of such establishments, and presents them as service to those seeking to avoid messing up the kitchen on Monday night. As always any observations, objections or additions are welcome in the comments.
