Today’s feature is a staple out in the east end (Anchorage) – The Village Anchor. The VA is a restaurant owned by fabulous Louisville restauranteur Kevin Grangier. Their food is described as “southern-inspired comfort food, hearty, and flavorful” – and I couldn’t agree more. It was a lovely dining experience, only made better by the company (my precious auntie and new friend, Leza).
What did we order?
Goat cheese gâteau – local goat cheese coated in Italian breadcrumbs and fried, served with roasted garlic, aged balsamic, and grilled Tribeca Bakery baguette slices.
Fried Brussels Sprout Salad – the best in the city (fried sprouts, toasted nuts, shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano, sliced radish, dried cherries, two over-easy fried eggs, red wine-dijon vinaigrette).
Prince Edward Island Mussels served with jalapeños, red onions, cilantro, garlic, sriracha-lime broth, grape tomatoes, and a Tribeca Bakery baguette.
Filet mignon with a bourbon demi-glace.
The fish special of the evening, served over a fried polenta cake with asparagus.
Last, but certainly not least, sweet potato fries with marshmallow crème and bourbon-cayenne dipping sauce.
That, my friends, is how you dine.
