I don’t know if you know this about me, but I enjoy wine. Out of a bottle, box or jug, it’s my adult beverage of choice for an evening at home watching Murder, She Wrote. Fortunately, a new restaurant has opened on Bardstown Road that might get me out of the house in pursuit of wine and snacks.
LouVino opened in July at 1606 Bardstown Road in the former De La Torre/La Bodega space. The restaurant specializes in “small plates” and “big wine.” A few words from co-owner Lauren Coulter:
LouVino will have 40 wines by the glass, and an additional 40 by the bottle, along with an innovative “small plates” menu created by our executive chef, Tavis Rockwell.
The small plate menu looks like the real deal. Most of the small plates are $10 or less, which is right up my alley to go with a nice glass of vino. I have my eye on the smoked gouda Hot Brown mac and cheese ($9), the loaded baked potato tots ($8), and the fried chicken tacos ($9).
