  • Stop into the Louisville outpost of this Austin-based Tex-Mex chain after shopping at the nearby malls. They have a full menu of the usual suspects — tacos, burritos and enchiladas, plus fresh margaritas. For something different, try the Elvis Green Chile Fried Chicken. It’s breaded in potato chips and served with green chile sauce.

  • Including “martini bar” in the name of this place was no exaggeration. The martini menu includes colorfully named vodka, bourbon, rum, and dessert creations. Purists, don’t worry — we bet they’d make a classic vodka (or gin) and vermouth martini if you ask nicely. Soak up your drinks with 60 West’s upscale American bistro fare.
