    Chef–owner Ouita Michel uses locally grown meats and produce to create her five-course prix-fixe menus. These change every two weeks and may be Southern, French, Southwestern or any cuisine that strikes her fancy. The restaurant has multiple dining rooms in an old Southern mansion with a wraparound porch, where alfresco dining is offered in summer. Wine pairings are available for an additional charge.

    If you want to learn more about Kentucky's amber elixir, this is the place to come—they have virtually every bourbon currently in production (more than 120 or them). Tasting flights are available. The menu, which ranges from burger to sea bass, includes Southern favorites like pan seared pork chop and bacon-wrapped scallops. Naturally, bourbon is an ingredient in many dishes.

    Chef–proprietor Kathy Cary is Kentucky's most honored chef.

The contemporary purple and deep green dining rooms will make you feel like you're dining in an elegant private home.

    Linen-covered tables in the formal dining room add to the old-world charm of this restaurant, but the wood-paneled bar with roaring fireplace feels cozier. Be sure to start your meal with fried green tomatoes, a Southern classic. Entrées include blackened salmon with crawfish corn pudding, and a bacon-wrapped filet mignon with bourbon demi glace.

    High-end comfort food is served up here, including the excellent braised beef short ribs with smoky beans and collard greens. Grilled chops or fish come with sides such as crawfish corn pudding or the "grits du jour." Both the wine and bourbon lists are excellent.
