Celebrity Chefs 2nd edition



I was looking for an interesting early dinner in downtown Louisville.  I thought about grabbing a taxi out to Masterson's, a local haunt across the University, but settled on walking to 4th Street Live.  The Maker's Mark restaurant is long gone.  Guy's Smokehouse was new.  

The 18 hours smoked brisket was good, Blue Door Smokehouse in Lexington is better.  The fries were well crisped and nice and salty.  The roasted Brussels Sprouts with bacon and parmesan cheese were good, if a little under cooked.  The drink was called a history lesson, apparently in history they watered the drinks down.  Despite some initial confusion about whose table it was, the service was good.  

No sign of Guy, but that is to be expected.  

When I am back there, should I give the place a second try?

  1. Sounds to me like it's not worth a second try.
