Lilly’s – A Kentucky Bistro

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.

 Opus One 1992

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?
