Out in one of the boroughs of Greater Louisville went to a very fine restaurant called Lilly’s. It is on Bardstown Road, and there are a number of fine dining establishments and taverns in this area.
Lilly’s calls themselves a bistro and the food bears out that description. My Bride started out with Mag’s Ravioli, which was shrimp fried wontons, a poached lobster tail with a brandy lobster cream sauce, while I opted for a classic Seared Hudson Valley Foie Gras in a classic presentation. My Bride then had Seared Sea Scallops with English Peas and a Country Risotto, crispy Prosciutto and a Shellfish reduction sauce, while I enjoyed a Berkshire Pork Tenderloin with Bacon Sweet Potato Hash and Pork Belly Kale. We finished this dinner off by sharing a bread pudding with a Hot Toddy Sauce.
Lilly’s has a wonderful wine list and we went with a Meritage wine that evening by Opus One 1992 of Napa Valley. We had been to the winery and have enjoyed this wine on many other occasions. This is a consistently fine blend in the classic Bordeaux concept. How can you not splurge once in awhile, especially with a fine meal?
