Chef @ Home – Annette Saco

Posted by chaska on June 10, 2009


Le Gallo Rosso Restaurant
1325 Bardstown Rd

Guest Chef for June’s Supper Speakeasy (originally to be held in April)

I have had the amazing fortune to both dine at Le Gallo Rosso and become great friends with the chef, Annette. I first dined at the restaurant in late 2006 and continued to bring a new friend with me almost every week to this lovely hidden gem I had discovered – hidden in one of the more popular areas of Bardstown Rd., right next door to The Bristol.¬† Next month, LGR celebrates 3 yrs in business and they have a lot to celebrate! Recent renovations have incorported the enitre building, with beautilful Italian inspired fresco designs by Jan Rawlings and the long awaited return of wine! And with the best, traditional Italian menu in the city, a tiramisu to die for and flanked with what may be one of Louisville’s best short wine lists – prepared primarily with Vintner’s Select Wines and only an $11 markup per bottle – you really can’t go wrong. Stop by and say hi to Annette, she’d love to see you!
