THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Blind Pig Restaurant Review

: NO VEGETABLES is the all-caps proclamation for the entrée-size meat plate consisting of house-made kielbasa, Italian and boudin sausages, and loin and streaky bacon. Add chorizo for a small up-charge. If you really must have something green, peruse the selection of salads dressed in tangy vinaigrettes. Garlicky ratatouille pairs well with this earthy fare. Red meat entrées include shepherd’s pie, cassoulet and a pork tenderloin. As meat-centered as the gastropub is, the kitchen prepares topnotch seafood, including buttery sautéed trout with warm potato and sugar snap pea salad, and house-cured salmon croquettes with an addictive lemon aïoli. The bar serves a selection of traditional and newly minted cocktails and the draft beers include two unusual thirst-quenching English ales seldom encountered at Louisville venues --- Hobgoblin and Old Speckled Hen. Wines are inexpensive but worthwhile. The portion of butter pecan bacon brittle ice cream for dessert is easily large enough to share. Accompanied with a finger of fine bourbon, it's a life-altering experience.
