The locavore movement is a great thing, because it has resulted in a slew of awesome new restaurants in Louisville. One of the best ones is Harvest, located next to a few of the other “we only use seasonal and local ingredients” new spots on Market Street in Louisville’s “NuLu” area downtown. Harvest is a fan of pork, so jowls and bacons and fresh meat dishes revolving around pig are common and delicious. Sweet potatoes, butternut squash, and plenty of tasty items on Harvest’s ever-changing menu will appeal to any visitor, however, and the dessert and appetizers of the day are just as mouth-watering as any other item on the menu. Even though I’ve sampled “burger master” Bobby Flay’s burger at NYC’s Mesa Grill, I have to say Harvest’s, with it’s hog jowl jam, was the best burger I’ve ever had, hands down. Harvest has an excellent wine menu and even the most basic arugula salad was delicious – look, if you can find a restaurant that makes me go ga-ga over beets, I think we have a winner. If you’re in “Possibility City,” it is impossible for you to have a bad meal at Harvest!
