Corbett’s

5050 Norton Healthcare Boulevard Louisville, KY 40241

I’ve heard great things about Corbett’s but it’s out off of I-265 so it wasn’t the first place I thought of when I wanted to check out a new (to me) restaurant. My friend was moving away from Louisville for new adventures in Denver, so we thought it would be a great location for a goodbye dinner!

We opted to sit in the bar area and order a variety of items from the lounge and patio menu, ranging in price $8-15, to share. The bar area is pretty small with room for 8-10 at the bar and 2-3 tables for 4 people each. We started with the appetizer special, which was gnudi cooked with bacon, cherries, pistachios, garlic, white wine, and butter. It was delicious with the perfect balance of flavors. I would also recommend the black truffle agnolotti (similar to ravioli) with roasted garlic, brown butter breadcrumbs (the perfect crunch), grana padano cheese, and crispy sage. If you’re a shrimp and grits fan, try their cajun shrimp with andoullie and roasted red pepper grits, topped with lump crab. Yum!

For dessert, we tried the Woodford bourbon chocolate ice cream which was served with berries. We also had the mascarpone cheesecake with lemon curd (would have liked more than what was served on the side), raspberry coulis (ditto), and graham cracker crumble. And we loved the crisp cookie wafer! I thought both were tasty; I just wanted more! And then our bartender/server, who was awesome by the way, brought out bourbon balls and raspberry almond tarts on the house- how nice!

I honestly hadn’t been to Corbett’s because I thought the menu looked pretty pricey. However, I think the bar menu was more reasonable. I would say my stomach left satisfied and I enjoyed the quality of food, but I wasn’t full like I usually am leaving a restaurant especially after paying so much. Try Corbett’s for after work drink and apps in lounge or dinner on the patio for a special occasion.

Corbett’s is open for lunch Monday- Friday 11:30 am-2 pm and dinner Monday- Saturday 5-10 pm and Sunday 5-9 pm. Check out their lunch, dinner, lounge & patio, and dessert menus.

For Goodness Crepes

619 Baxter Avenue Louisville, KY 40204

I’m so excited that this cute little crepe shop opened in my neighborhood! I actually stopped in sometimes in January when it was freakishly warm for winter after a walk with my boyfriend (now, fiance!) and my parents. It makes for a fun place with bright colors, positive quotes and messages on their walls, and games and magnetic poetry at the tables.

For Goodness Crepes has savory, breakfast, dessert, and build-your-own crepe varieties, ranging in price $5.40-9.29. We were just trying them out, so we only got two but will have to go back to check out the other kinds. Elvis with a Kick is filled with bananas, sweet peanut butter sauce, caramel sauce-all of Elvis’ favorite flavors, as well as some of mine. But I think I liked Quite the Di’Lemon more, which was made with lemon cream cheese and blueberries or strawberries (we chose blueberries). Yum! I was going to take a picture of it opened but that just doesn’t photograph well.

For Goodness Crepes is open Tuesday-Friday 11 am-9 pm and Saturday-Sunday 8 am-9 pm. Check out their Facebook page, and then go check them out in person and and let me know which crepe is your favorite!
