We had been getting along pretty well without dining out since the pandemic got real last month, but someone in this house has been feeling a serious crave for that Louisville tradition, fried fish on rye.

As it turns out, quite a few local favorites are offering this local fave for takeout or curb service: The Fish House, Chik’n & Mi, Four Pegs, Hooked on Frankfort, Royals Hot Chicken, Joellas. I’m sure there are plenty more, but I already had my mind set on a favorite: Moby Dick. Continue reading Moby Dick’s drive-through satisfies fishy crave
Who doesn’t miss pulling your chair up to a table at a favorite Louisville restaurant and ordering a dish that you love? I sure do!
Of course there’s always takeout, ideally with no-touch curbside delivery, as an alternative way to let the chef show her skills.

But how about the good folks who get our hot dinner the last mile to our houses? Continue reading Guess who’s driving your dinner
