Repeal Oak Fired Steakhouse (101 West Main Street, Unit 101). Repeal showcases an array of oak fired steaks and seafood. Whether you visit for a casual lunch or are coming to celebrate a special occasion at dinner you’ll appreciate the extensive collection of over 200+ spirits and specialty cocktails. Order the French Onion Soup, you won’t regret it! Instagram

Osteria Italian Seafood (1211 Herr Lane, Westport Village Shopping Center). A fresh seafood restaurant with an Italian twist, you’ll be hard pressed to find fresher seafood without a trip to the beach. If you’re not craving seafood, indulge in freshly made pastas and enjoy the extensive wine list on one of the two outdoor patios. Instagram

LouVino Louisville (11400 Main Street & 1606 Bardstown Road). If you’re looking for chef-driven, southern inspired cuisine look no further than LouVino. With two locations in Louisville, there is always something happening here. Curated Sommelier wine tastings, themed event dinners, and a spectacular patio at their Douglass Hills location, make this restaurant a Louisville favorite. Instagram

Gustavo’s Mexican Grill (401 South Hurstbourne Parkway). With five locations to serve Louisville and the surrounding area, Gustavo’s makes you feel like family (oftentimes you will find Gustavo himself welcoming you)! An authentic, delicious, and fun dining experience paired with Gustavo’s own Mexican Lager, Viva de Reyes, is a treat any night of the week. Instagram

Lou Lou on Market (812 East Market Street). Featuring New Orleans-style cuisine, as well as  stellar pizza, pasta, and everything in between! The patio is one of the best in the city and the live music can’t be beat. For a fun twist, visit the Speakeasy in the basement for after dinner drinks and a good time. Instagram
