I feel like I’m missing something.
Restaurants are opening up around town like gangbusters, and I can’t figure out why. Is this a sign of the economy bouncing back? Has Louisville’s appetite for eating out reached epic proportions? Am I just noticing this uptick more because I write about food? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
I’m going to take a Dayquil and ponder this. In the meantime, here is a round-up of some notable openings (and a closing or two). Click the source links for more info.
- Open: El Camino (Consuming Louisville)
- Opening: Loop 22 Rotisserie and Grill (The Courier-Journal); Great Flood Brewing Company (Consuming Louisville)
- Open: Atlantic No. 5 (Ashlee Eats)
- Opening: Unnamed restaurant from the same management company behind Doc Crow’s Southern Smokehouse and Raw Bar and La Coop: Bistro a Vins (Business First of Louisville)
- Closed: Ri Ra Irish Pub and Restaurant (Insider Louisville)
- Opening: Two Brazilian restaurants — Boi Na Braza and Brazeiros Churrascaria (Business First of Louisville); Tavern on Fourth (Business First of Louisville)

Last Friday, I had my heart set on a tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich from The Main Eatery. It was the first cold Friday of the fall, so the line for other seekers of that legendary soup-and-sandwich combo was out the door and to the corner of the block.
It was 12:15. I didn’t have time for that.
Atlantic No. 5 was just a few doors down. I glanced inside and saw that the line was contained to the warm interior of the bistro. Customers hovered over cups of soup as they skimmed newspapers. A server walked around the counter with something that could pass for a grilled cheese. That was enough for me to give this restaurant a try.
