About the Book

Louisville was home to fine cuisine long before the famous restaurant rows on Bardstown Road, Frankfort Avenue and East Market Street. Mazzoni’s served the area’s first rolled oyster (maybe). At the C-54 Grill, guests dined inside a remodeled aircraft. Kaelin’s prepared its classic cheeseburger (though probably not, as is often claimed, the first). Stebbins Grill was the place to be in the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s for seafood and steaks. Hasenour’s sauerbraten and Hoe Kow’s war sui gai are two dishes that still make local mouths water when mentioned. Lost Restaurants of Louisville revisits the vivid personalities, celebrated spaces and unique recipes that made Louisville’s historic eateries unforgettable.
