Kentucky Derby restaurants?

Jump to last reply

I'm heading to the Oaks and Derby this May with 5 friends. None of us have ever been before (in fact, I don't think any of us have even been in the state of Kentucky before, not counting CVG airport!)

Can anyone recommend a restaurant or two for while we're down there? Maybe one "special occasion" type place and one somewhat less expensive but still excellent place? I'd love to eat somewhere that is genuinely Kentuckian--maybe southern cuisine? We don't need anything we can find easily at home here in New York (Italian, sushi, etc.). But we are all food lovers and would appreciate any recommendations from natives or those who have been to L'ville before.

Thanks very much!!

Matt
