Don’t you just love how cool Louisville is? We have the best of so many worlds – great art, spectacular food… We just keep getting more and more attention for all the passion that floats around our city, and our dining scene is truly flourishing. There are several chefs to thank for this, and one in particular is John Varanese, the executive chef and owner of Varanese Restaurant on Frankfort Avenue. His passion for local products is remarkable, his food is delicious, and his professionalism and work ethic have earned him so much peer respect that he will be included in the 1st edition of Best Chefs America!
