Louisville Originals

The Louisville Originals are spicing things up on the local food scene.

Louisville Originals is an association of dozens of independently-owned and operated restaurants in Louisville, Kentucky. Their goal? To support and promote eating locally. In other words, they want to help Louisvillians break the "chain habit" and take part in the city's unique food offerings.

In this Louisville Life segment, we give you a taste of what the Originals have to offer as we visit Baxter Station Bar and Grill, the restaurant owned by Louisville Originals Co-founder and President Andrew Hutto.

Learn what sets the Louisville Originals apart from the rest and how eating locally is one sweet deal for entrepreneurs, patrons, and community.

Louisville Originals Co-founder Michael Reidy owns The Irish Rover and The Irish Rover, Too.

To see a complete list of Louisville Originals members, visit their website.

Learn more about Louisville Originals members August Moon and Asiatique; Corbett's; De la Torre's and La Bodega in previous Louisville Life Dining segments.

And if you just canít get enough of your favorite Louisville Originals dishes, you can prepare a few of them at home by downloading recipes of chef specialties.
