My fiance and I are eloping to Louisville at the end of August for a week of bluegrass, bourbon, and food. We would like to make reservations for three nice dinners and then seek out cheap eats for the other nights and lunches. We will be there for six nights and are likely going to stay at the Brown Hotel (we wanted to stay at the 21C but it cuts too far into the dining budget!).
I would love recommendations for both kinds of meals. We are looking for great food but not necessarily fine dining settings. We are both foodies, I have worked in the restaurant industry for a decade and good service and food are far more important than white tablecloths.
My man is a vegetarian, so that is our only food constraint - other than needing to fill his plate with non-meat options, we're easy.
I'd also love to hear about any brewpubs in town where we can go for a break from whiskey!
