Bits and Pieces: Papa John’s, Restaurant Week and other Louisville food news from the web, 2.13.15

Events
  • 502 Restaurant Week begins Feb. 18 and runs through March 4. This is your chance to enjoy a three-course meal¬†from some of the city’s best restaurants at a prix fixe menu ($50.20 per couple or per person depending on the restaurant). I believe that’s French for “special-occasion food.” Here’s a list of participating restaurants. (Insider Louisville)
News
  • This week’s latest beef: Iggy Azalea v. Papa John’s. In short, a Papa John’s driver got a little too excited to deliver a pizza to Iggy and shared her number. Then Iggs took to social media to complain, and now the driver has been reprimanded. Don’t mess with Australia, John. (The Hollywood Reporter)
Openings
  • There’s a new Mellow Mushroom in the Highlands (1023 Bardstown Road), and the pizza chain has really done a great job of incorporating their business into the community (just check out that Col. Sanders art piece in the slideshow). Hmmm, maybe Walmart could learn a thing or three. (Business First of Louisville)
  • The folks who brought us Eggs Over Frankfort will open Eggs Over Baxter this spring at Baxter Centre, 962 Baxter Ave. I featured Eggs Over Frankfort in my upcoming book (PLUG!), so I’m pretty excited about this addition. (Insider Louisville)
