Louisville #2 Best Cities for Local Food

I rarely tire of hearing great things about my city, Louisville. Well, I don’t actually own the city, I just live here, but still… I’m a huge fan.

So it’s great to hear national praise like this—the USAToday Reader’s Choice Awards ranks Louisville #2 in their list of Best Cities for Local Food. Jammin’! (Do kids still say that?!)

Here’s an excerpt from their site:

In a city known for small-batch bourbon, it’s not surprising that the restaurant scene likewise revolves around local artisans. Carefully curated relationships with area farmers lie at the heart of the menu at Proof on Main and Harvest, both downtown. One of the original farm-to-table restaurants in Louisville, Lilly’s highlights free-range beef, organic vegetables and artisanal cheeses. At 610 Magnolia, Edward Lee puts a contemporary spin on Southern fare, while Chef Anthony Lamas highlights fresh seafood at Seviche.

Planning a trip and want to know what other cities have great, local food? Check out this Top 10:

The top 10 winners in the category Best Local Food Scene are as follows:

1. Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN
2. Louisville, KY
3. Nashville, TN
4. Providence, RI
5. Raleigh, NC
6. Asheville, NC
7. Oakland, CA
8. New Orleans, LA
9. Portland, ME
10. Charleston, SC

The process worked like this. A panel of experts picked the 20 nominees. Once done, the rankings were determined by popular vote.

On the other hand, if we the secret keeps getting out, our traffic will only grow worse. So… please no more national attention. Thanks!

Tre...I use to have to come to Louisville on business twice a year and loved an Italian restaurant that was downtown.  I believe they built it in an old bank building and started with a "V".  That was one incredible restaurant.  I love your city and wish you a very Happy New Year filled with abundant blessings.
