LEO’s Eat ‘N’ Blog With Louisville Hot Bytes: Drop your Kentucky prejudice and head to Bistro New Albany

With its intact blocks of sturdy, historic office buildings and its lovely rows of stately Victorian mansions, N’Albany seems to have just about everything a city could want — with the possible exception, unfortunately, of a busy, vibrant street scene after the sun goes down.

But here and there, lately, there’ve been distinct signs of a renaissance, and none more vivid than the arrival of Bistro New Albany, a lovely dining room that’s been earning a growing cadre of fans since it opened in May.

Congrats, guys. I’d been planning the meet D. for lunch tomorrow … can we perhaps reserve a table and get in ahead of the crowd?
