I got a response from my friend who lives in Louisville. He suggested three restaurants: Holly Hill Inn, Jack Fry's and Germantown Bakery. There is also a steakhouse, Jeff Ruby's which is the best steakhouse in Louisville, but is a small chain and not Louisville based.
In regards to Bourbon visits, he suggested Maker's Mark, Buffalo Trace and Woodford Reserve and Rabbit Hole
Thanks! We love steakhouses, & will definitely check it out. Haven't heard of Rabbit Hole, but since it appears to actually be in town, we may have to see it. It would be interesting to try some spirits that aren't normally available in WA.
