The Still, Danville, KY

Hey, y’all!

Many of you know this, but Danville is one of my favorite places in the Commonwealth of Kentucky (and that’s a pretty big statement, as I am sure y’all are aware of by now). Why? It’s a beautiful, small community in Central Kentucky; however, more importantly, it’s home to Centre College, my beloved alma mater.

The Still is a new restaurant – and completely new concept – for Danville. I loved it, however I left with mixed emotions. It made me proud to see the community progress in the culinary realm, yet sad that I didn’t have this eatery around during my undergraduate years!

The largest inspiration for the food at the Still is Brazilian cuisine; however, you will find some US traditions, along with others, thrown into the mix.

They specialize in craft cocktails; if you go without having the classic caipirinha (Espirito Classico Cachaca, lime, cane sugar) you’re doing it wrong. Case closed.

The service was fantastic, as was the atmosphere. I loved that diners are able to see the copper pot at work while enjoying their food — it really connects the distillery and culinary concept, one thing that I think, as a KY Foodie, that our Commonwealth is working towards.

Now — the food!

Candied Bacon w/ Molé: applewood-smoked, maple glazed, served with a molé dipping sauce. Simply delicious!

No meal is complete without dessert, am I right or am I right?
