Vincenzo’s in Louisville, Kentucky

This is a great restaurant that we have eaten at, a couple of times, while we are down visiting.  The owner is very civic minded and is a big supporter of community efforts.  Vincenzo’s is a very elegant restaurant in the old school manner of appearance and great service, not to mention great food.

On one of our dinners there, we enjoyed the following menu, and the other times have been just as fine.  My Bride started out with Smoked Salmon with capers and shallots, while I had the Crepe Agostino which is a crepe filled with beef, veal and chicken with a Béchamel Glazed Marinara Sauce.  Then we both had Insalata di Cesare.  My Bride enjoyed Sea Bass with King Crab meat and I had a wonderful Veal Chop that was prepared perfectly.  For dessert we enjoyed a Soufflé.  We were out to dinner with my Sister-in-Law and her husband, who are very good friends with the owner of Vincenzo’s.

That evening we enjoyed a great bottle of wine from Pauillac, Chateau Mouton-Rothschild 1985.  After 1973, Chateau Mouton-Rothschild had been elevated to Premiers Grands Crus of the 1855 Classification of the Medoc and rightfully so.  Suffice it to say, that this was a wonderful wine and all four of us enjoyed every drop, after it had been decanted.  It truly represents the best of what a First Growth wine should epitomize.
