Louisville's own Greek Goddess of good food has closed her St. Matthews deli to open a full service Bistro in the Toonerville area of Old Louisville. While her deli was nice it is even nicer to have a comfortable place to sit down and eat her delicious food as it is freshly prepared and at it's prime. Right now she is open for lunch only Monday through Saturday 11am until 2:30pm for lunch and 5:00pm until 9:00pm for dinner. Unfortunately her liqour license has been delayed and it may take 45 days to get it. This will NOT stop her from serving up good food and all of her Deli's food is still available to take home with you as well.
On her first day open I could not wait to get there... anticipating and watching her facebook posts with great excitement. Then it finally happened, my Mother and I had lunch there and this is going to be a really nice treat for us. I had the daily special which was a genreous bowl of avelgomono soup, a classic lamb gyro, and it included my drink. My mom enjoyed a rather large fresh greek salad... and then we also enjoyed the company of Chef Maria herself. Her Bistro is in the old Carly Rae's location on Oak Street between first and second streets. It has two separate rooms, a bar area with both four seater and two seater high top tables. And a separate dining room with four seater tables and a piano.
