Harvest is the epitome of the farm-to-table movement in Louisville. I knew it the moment I walked in. From the giant black and white photos of the farmers who made our food, the large cork board art piece pinpointing the exact location of the local farms, and the curious nondescript menu. But nondescript in this case is good. For example, when you order the Harvest pizza, you get a choice of meat or vegetable, set at market price. Market price? Typically you only see that with seafood. At Harvest the reason they don’t tell you the toppings depends on the farmers crops and meats that week. It’s like fresh dining roulette! But without leaving broke and angry. That night my pizza was a chicken confit with a spicy corn salsa. Who knows what meat pizza will be next week!
The fresh details are also in the cocktail menu. When I ordered my favorite drink the Old Fashioned, the bartender whipped up a version with peach puree, black walnut bitters and Old Forestor. Fresh is good. And so is their southern style comfort food.
Take a look at what we ate (the bread pudding stole the show):
Speaking of pizza, catch my chat with The Ramsey Brothers on Lite 106.9 tomorrow morning at 7:45 am where we discuss some of the most unique pizzas in Louisville and what is new to our dining scene. Got a place I have to talk about? Let me know on my FB page.
