Lost Restaurants of Louisville
ouisville was home to fine cuisine long before the famous restaurant rows on Bardstown Road, Frankfort Avenue and East Market Street. Mazzoni's served the area's first rolled oyster. At the C-54 Grill, guests dined inside a remodeled aircraft, and Kaelin's prepared its classic cheeseburger. Hasenour's sauerbraten and Hoe Kow's war sui gai are two dishes that still make local mouths water when mentioned. Authors Stephen Hacker and Michelle Turner revisit the vivid personalities, celebrated spaces and unique recipes that made Louisville's historic eateries unforgettable.
