You've sampled the fabulous French food with a Southern twist at La Coop Bistro, right? Many Louisville diners have, including the Courier Journal's critic, who gave the place 4 stars, and chances are good that you have, too. But, what happens when a French/Southern restaurant veers over to Italy for a special meal? Well, I don't know yet, but I predict magical awesomeness takes place, and I certainly want to find out.
On March 25th, Chef Bobby Benjamin and his culinary team are going to prepare a 3-course Italian dinner, titled "Lunedi Cena Osteria". Sounds like a recipe for super magical awesomeness to me.
