Lunch at Eiderdown

Traditional German cuisine doesn't offer a lot to vegetarians. When a girl in a dirndl is coming your way with a plate of food, it is usually brat or wurst. Luckily, Eiderdown, on Goss Street in Louisville's Germantown neighborhood, is not entirely traditional. Eiderdown is, in fact, very friendly to its vegetarian customers. A modest...

Veggies at Monnik

You might not think of Monnik Beer Company as an obvious choice for vegetarians. But we found quite a few options on the menu. All of them delicious.

Booze and compassion at V-Grits

V-Grits opened three months ago with a bang, and it's been a happening place in Germantown ever since. This restaurant's owners did a lot of things right from the get go. They started out with a food truck, provided a high-quality product, and got their name out there. They built up a clientele that would... Continue Reading →

Underwhelmed at Bar Vetti

I was really excited to go to Bar Vetti because the Google Maps reviews made it sound like THE place to go. We entered through a lobby that smells like a swimming pool. Unless there is actually a pool in the building, they need to back peddle on the bleach. The best thing about the... Continue Reading →
