Louisville has some really great neighborhoods, from the West Main Historic District to Old Louisville and Portland, the Germantown area is just another addition to this town. One of the best restaurants in the neighborhood is definitely Eiderdown. Here the kitchen serves innovative plates with creative names like the Mayor of Milk Street which is the grass-fed strip loin, a duck confit and pumpkin risotto masterpiece. The drink and draft beer menus change consistently as well, and though many might consider this spot as a German restaurant because of the Spätzel, pretzels and wurst, it definitely transcends that label.
Traditional cuisine from Northern Italy gets a gourmet twist at Porcini.

A private room is available to rent for groups of 6 to 55, and special events take place at the restaurant throughout the year.
The Bistro Le Relais recreates the magic of famed aviator Charles Lindbergh's plane-landing with its strategic location near the Bowman Field Airport.
