Eiderdown Restaurant Review

: The lawns in front of the tiny houses in Louisville’s Germantown neighborhood are famously tidy. Happily, the atmosphere inside Eiderdown is far more relaxed. A wall-length, hand-carved wooden bar bristles with 21 beer taps. Patrons nestled around wooden trestle tables munch on duck fat-popped popcorn or warm pretzel sticks with mustard as they sip their pints. Regionally sourced ingredients --- Bibb lettuce and Kenny’s Farmhouse and Capriole Farm’s cheeses --- are found in the salads. Local grass-fed beef is used for the Nachburger, ground with bacon and served on a brioche bun. A linguine dish, dubbed the Comfy Cozze, contains mussels, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes and lobster nage. Spätzle is unexpectedly vegetarian. Carrot-infused noodles are tossed with peas, pearl onions, Swiss chard and almonds, and topped with a fried egg. Carnivores may add Italian sausage. Top off the meal with a little fruit by choosing the raspberry pudding for dessert. German and Austrian wines are available if you are not in a beer mood.
