Louisville Restaurants Open Sunday Evenings

View as Map

Not every fine Louisville restaurant is open on Sundays, and even fewer are open on Sunday evenings. For many restaurant workers Monday is a day off, and perhaps everybody needs an occasional party night. Nevertheless some places do offer meals on Sunday evenings. Eater has assembled a list of such establishments, and presents them as service to those (perhaps with the same sort of religious inclination that prevents city beer sales before 1 p.m) seeking to avoid messing up the kitchen on Sunday night. As always any observations, objections or additions are welcome in the comments.
