I said it once and I’ll say it again: cheese curds are delicious. This is a new revelation. To me, the words “cheese curds” sounds gross. Like some sick Wisconsin joke to see if they could get outsiders to eat them. Then I went to AP Crafters and order me a basket of fried cheddar cheese curds with with pimento cheese ranch dressing. Oh. My. God. Awesome.
They may not look like much but they are worth the dining experience. That and the super friendly waitstaff who gives you a firm handshake whenever you sit down to dine. Owner Tony Palombino pays attention to details at his kitchen and gastropub, from the cool cocktail menu (like Oprah’s favorite Moscow Mule with vodka, spicy ginger soda, Craft sugar, squeezed lime, mint) to the challenging dinner list that takes bar food very seriously. Other edgy options on their new Fall menu include:
- New BBQ “pork Sammy” of pulled pork, Swiss cheese, bacon jam, red onions and fried pickle chips
- Short-rib tacos, which features braised short ribs with sweet pickled vegetables, fresh cilantro in grilled flour tortillas
- Rum raisin bread pudding
Add AP Crafters to your Louisville bucket list and go curd crazy. Hey it’s working for the Packers!
