Burgeoning independent dining destination cooking up something good for foodies

PROSPECT, Ky. (January 5, 2018)— Norton Commons announced today that the growing new urbanist community in northeast Louisville will host its second annual restaurant week Mon., Jan. 22 through Sun., Jan. 28. Eight restaurants will offer patrons three-course dinner menus including appetizer, entrée, and dessert from $15, $20, and $25.

“As far as independent dining and shopping goes, I think Norton Commons is clearly on the rise and stacks up well against any community in the region,” said Executive Chef Ming Pu of The 502 Bar & Bistro. “There’s no shortage of talented chefs in this walkable community. They’re cooking up everything from Kentucky cuisine with a global influence, to South American Street food, to Italian trattoria fare, to inventive sake cocktails and fresh sushi. I know everyone has worked hard on special, inventive menus that will make a big impression on both first-time and longtime guests.”

Norton Commons Restaurant Week participants include: Mercato Italiano; Citizen 7; The 502 Bar & Bistro; Wild Ginger; Tea Station Asian Bistro; Karem’s Grill & Pub; and Johnny Brusco’s. In addition, Commonwealth Tap will offer nightly sommelier-selected wine and bourbon flights for $20 each. Luxury bed-and-breakfast, Château Bourbon is discounting rooms to $199 a night for those that want to stay in the neighborhood after their meal.
