Decorated to mimic the Café from Casablanca, Bistro Le Relais brings the 1940s aesthetic to the historic Bowman Field in Kentucky. While enjoying a first class meal of duck confit (white bean and bacon bread pudding, charred broccolini, orange gastrique and fennel pollen) or carré d’agneau (grilled lamb chops, rosemary mustard rub, sherry jus, minted Brussel sprouts and gratin dauphinois), diners can watch the airplanes land at the nearby airport for a stunning free show.

Majid’s St. Matthews

Nightly lounge music creates a satisfactory atmosphere at Majid’s that mimics the delicious way their Mediterranean-influenced food makes guests feel. Start with the kashke bademjon (eggplant, house-made yogurt, mint and caramelized onion) as the music begins and move on to a plate of rack of lamb (flame roasted kabob, lemon, sumac, lima bean and dill basmati rice, shirazi and vegetables) that will make you wish the music went all night long. Majid’s is the place to be swept away.
