Like every Irish pub, it's got traditional food and lots of Guinness, but here they go the extra mile. The recipes are extra traditional. The Guinness is poured just right. And thanks to all of that, locals pack the place, creating a true feeling of community on any given night. See website for menu, sister location and more.
Once upon a time, Americans ate exclusively food that was seasonal and local, for there were no interstate trucking to ferry tomatoes around in the dead of winter. Therefore, traditional American home cooking was just naturally health conscious and sustainable. Somewhere along the way, however, "home cooking" came to mean processed this and high-fructose that -- and canned everything. North End Cafe signals a return to the old days. Hearty comfort food (from biscuits and gravy to scallops and grits), prepared with an eye toward healthfulness and environmental responsibility. The place definitely has at least one foot in the present, with its full bar and lounge and a number of international influences on the menu.

Maido's portions are small so that customers can try many different dishes and they serve a surprisingly wide variety of wine and beer. The happy hour menu (Monday through Friday 4p-6p) is limited but the full menu is quite extensive.

After a long afternoon of shopping on Bardstown Road and hiking through Cherokee Park, a pleasant place for a refreshment is Flanagan's. Less a party spot than neighboring O'Shea's, Flanagan's offers an commanding selection of beers -- both imported and craft brewed.

Note that barkeeps here are spirited ambassadors for their city, so if you require tips on where to go and what to see, ask away.
