LouisvilleKY to get new Steak and Bourbon restaurant in Westport Village


LOUISVILLE, KY (April 26, 2019)—Olé Hospitality Group, the creative force behind Mussel & Burger Bar, Taco Luchador, Guaca Mole
Cocina Mexicana announced today that Artesano Vino Tapas y Mas in Westport Village at 1321 Herr Ln #130 will close on April 28 to make way for the group’s newest concept, Steak & Bourbon: An American Grill.
The new classic, casual American steakhouse will open its doors May 16.

“We looked at a lot of locations around the city, but we really felt like the Westport Village spot was the best place to do it the right
way,”  said Olé co-founder, Chef Fernando Martinez.  “We have been making a lot of design changes. By mid-May, the space will look totally different.”

The signature dish from executive chef Jason Smith will be the 24 oz. Cowboy Cut Ribeye of certified Angus aged a minimum of 30 days from Sherwood Farms and the house-cut Tallow Fries.

Other favorites include the center cut filet, pan roasted chicken and grilled Verlasso salmon, steak & cheese hand pies, S&B Maryland-style crab cakes, chilled jumbo shrimp cocktail and crabmeat deviled eggs.

“The cocktail program is going to obviously be based on Kentucky’s greatest spirit,” said Martinez. “You can expect some great private
selections and Olé’s interpretation of the Old Fashioned and the Manhattan, among others.”

Olé has very limited reservations available for their Steak & Bourbon Pop-up at Artesano April 30-May 4.

“We had such amazing interest when we announced the Steak & Dinner pop-up last month,” said Martinez.  “That kind of sealed the deal to make the change.”

Olé Hospitality Group will also open their fourth El Taco Luchador location in Colonial Gardens this summer and a fifth in Jeffersontown not long after.
