NEW RESTAURANT ROUND UP

Holy smokes the restaurant scene in Louisville is expanding at such a rapid rate! And I’m not talking about new restaurants coming to town either; these are restauranteurs who are expanding their food portfolio by opening new concepts and locations. Here are restaurants that made headlines this week:
Loop 22: The owners of Hammerheads and Game are opening up their 3rd restaurant this November called Loop 22. The menu will boast “rotisserie and modern American cuisine, utilizing flavors from all over the world” in the former walls of the Corner Bar and Grill in Douglass Loop.
W.W. Cousins: This Louisville hamburger joint first opened their doors in 1983 and now will be opening their second location in January. Taking over the space at 4112 Outer Loop of the former Buckhead Mountain Grill restaurant, W.W. Cousins will continue with their classic made from scratch menu and 40+ topping burger bar.
Wild Eggs: The Wild Eggs franchise is expanding and adding two new restaurants, one in downtown Louisville and one in Lexington. The Louisville location is by Market and Floyd street behind the Jimmy Johns. They are also toying with a concept of being open 24-hours on the weekend.
Doc Crows: The group behind Doc Crows and La Coop have announced they are opening up a new restaurant in 2015 at RiverPark Place. RiverPark Place is a 40-acre residential and commercial development on River Road, just east of Eva Bandman Park. The restaurant will overlook the marina and feature classic American comfort food to a whopping 300 seats.
