The Hot Brown was amazing, and very filling. Just comfort food at its highest level. I had a Brown Manhattan that was also excellent. I highly recommend this stop while in Louisville.

The perfect attire is jeans and a blazer, but the range is pretty wide. I'd advocate adding some elegance to your approach, just for fun.
