Decca, Louisville, KY

Decca Restaurant Review

: Boomers, as well as their retro offspring, delight in the tunes from eponymous Decca recordings on the restaurant’s sound system. Music wafts through any of the dining rooms spanning three stories in this restored 1870s historic building, as well as the outdoor dining deck and courtyard. No retro in sight on the menu, though. The modern, Euro-inspired dishes include pan-roasted mussels (merguez sausage potato coins and cilantro), duck liver terrine (grilled bread, cherry mostarda and pickled vegetables), black garlic linguine (oyster mushrooms and cured egg yolk) and crispy Texas red fish (sweet onion soubise, wild ramps, couscous). As many local ingredients as possible are sourced, so the Old World preparations are infused with New World flavors. An especially refreshing dessert is the citrus genoise made with orange curd, red-fleshed cara cara oranges and coconut. Libations, from craft cocktails to well-chosen wines, complement the fare.
