Any Restaurant Suggestions?

Here’s a question for you. What restaurant chain would YOU like to see in Louisville?

  1. I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a real NYC style deli. I’ve seen Bubba Gump’s in Times Square many times but have never eaten there–kinda stay away from the chain places when I’m there as they are basically tourist traps. Is it any good? Also, my son told me about a place that serves authentic thin, chewy NY style pizza here. Where is it at? I’m more about the little independent places myself.

  2. Let’s take “chain” out of our restaurant vocabulary. Louisville has plenty of great home-grown restaurants, so why bother with the cookie cutters? I agree that a real New York or Chicago deli would be fantastic, but we have the local talent to pull that off. Is it an idea whose time has come? If so, maybe a local entrepreneur will jump on it, secure some investment capital and open s spectacular deli. It ain’t rocket surgery, right? Let’s keep the money here in town. Support the Louisville Originals.

  3. I’d like to see something unique which is locally owned. ‘Possibility City’ is far, far too generic in terms of almost everything. It would be nice if the homogenization of America could be stopped. Louisville is becoming ‘Anywhere USA’. Sure, Starbucks, Olive Garden, Morton’s, et al. are OK, but you can go literally anywhere and find one of those. We as a community need to be thinking forward, not otherwise.

  4. I’d love to see Red, Hot & Blue come back. They used to have a restaurant on Hurstbourne Lane long before it became the major thoroughfare it is today. Great chili and awesome brisket, and their potato salad was the best I’ve ever had.

    That being said, I do my best to stick to the Louisville originals.

  5. A more interesting question would be: what chain would you like to see leave?

    My vote would be Red Robin, because if all-you-can-eat French Fries becomes the standard, there are going to be more people in stretch pants at the mall, and I can’t bear that.
