If you are in Kentucky this week and looking for a
special place to eat far away from the Derby madness, you might want to check out the Holly Hill Inn
. The historic restaurant is deep in the horse country of Midway,
about an hour from Louisville. The inn is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the cuisine is elegant
and fresh with a French flair. They serve a prix fixe menu Wednesday through Saturday with a three-course dinner menu
for $35, four courses for $40. and a five-course dinner for $45. They also have an impressive wine list chosen by
sommelier/owner Chris Michel. I had the pleasure of eating here a couple of years ago and can highly recommend both the
food and the lovely bucolic setting.
