¡Buen Provecho!

Our meal on night two of our food tour of Louisville had a Latin flair. Located on Bardstown Road, a very trendy area, we found Seviche – A Latin Restaurant. I think this was the best one of our entire weekend. The atmosphere was gorgeous, the service outstanding, and the food incredible. We started by ordering (from left to right): Marksbury Farms Smoked Chicken Tostada (Poblano Demi Glace, Jalapeño, Avocado, Manchego Cheese). Wild Mushroom and Goat Cheese Empanadas (Capriole Farms Goat Cheese, Sun Dried Tomato) and the Lamb Ribs with a smoky glaze. The Emapanadas were genius; I loved the mushroom filling better than any meat empanada filling I've ever tasted and the goat cheese addition just pumped up the flavor.

Next, three of us ordered salad. Ed had the Serrano Ham and Goat Cheese Croqueta (Mixed Field Greens, Sun-Dried Tomato, Black Walnuts) which was pretty good - the fried goat cheese croqueta thrilled me. Marlaina had the Flavors of Arugula (Trio of Roasted Bets, Capriole Farms Goat Cheese, Champagne Vinaigrette, Dijon); it was a beautifully presented dish. And finally, I had the Spinach and Roasted Pear Salad (Seasonal Berries, Capriole Farms Goat Cheese, Black Walnuts, Balsamic Mustard). I loved this salad, but my favorite part was the Balsamic Mustard dressing; it was a spicy mustard and gave the sweet balsamic a great little kick.

For our entrées...oh, my, my. I had the Fideo (Seared Sea Scallops, Angel Hair Pasta, Artichoke Hearts, Asparagus, Truffle Goat Cheese, Toasted Pine Nuts); so far I'm three for three with the goat cheese, I wonder what dessert will have in store? Ed had the "Mugs" Bistec (USDA Prime Beef Tenderloin, Farm Fresh Fried Egg, Caramalized Onion, Chimichurri, New Red Potato Mash); he gave me a piece of his steak and it was so tender, I don't even remember chewing it. Greg had the Atun de Chefe (Chef's daily creation of fresh sustainable tuna) and Marlaina had the Macadamia Crusted Pacific Cod (Cranberry Couscous, Habanero, Passion Fruit); I didn't taste either of their dishes, but they ate every speck on their plate!

For dessert...Marlaina and I had the Bread Pudding with Bourbon glaze, Ed had a Flourless Chocolate Cake and I think Greg passed on dessert...I don't recall. I think I may still be in a bread pudding daze.

I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the Louisville area, along with last night's place, the Napa River Grill. Next year, I'm mapping out my restaurants before I even LOOK at the show guide!
