    If you are interested in attending the special La Coop Italian wine dinner (honestly, who wouldn't be?), please be advised that the date has changed. It was previously set to be on March 25th, but has been moved to April 29th. 

    This dinner will be a rare treat, so please show up on the right day! :)

    The evening's menu is below with my original article about the dinner:

    You've sampled the fabulous French food with a Southern twist at La Coop Bistro, right? Many Louisville diners have, including the Courier Journal's critic, who gave the place 4 stars, and chances are good that you have, too. But, what happens when a French/Southern restaurant veers over to Italy for a special meal? Well, I don't know yet, but I predict magical awesomeness takes place, and I certainly want to find out.

    Chef Bobby Benjamin and his culinary team are going to prepare a 3-course Italian dinner, titled "Lunedi Cena Osteria". Sounds like a recipe for super magical awesomeness to me.

    The Menu:


    Primo (App/1st)

    Carni Bovine e Ravioli al Formaggio

    Beef Cheek Ravioli with peas and lemon

    2011 Secco, “Italian Bubbles” Rosé, Veneto


    Secondo (Main)

    Branzino alla Griglia con Sale Arrosto

    Salt-Roasted Branzino with spinach and tomato

    Bortolotti “Treviso” Prosecco, Extra Dry, Veneto


    Dolce (Dessert)

    Affogato al Caffe

    Pistachio and Mascarpone Gelato with espresso

    2011 Malvira “Birbet” Brachetto, Piedmont

    The dinner will be prix fixe at $35 per person plus tax and gratuities, and sparkling wine pairings will be available for an additional $30 per person.

    Reservations are required, and you can make them by calling (502) 410-2888. Seating is available from 5:30 to 10:30.
