Getting the Lowdown on the Rabbit Hole with Michael Motamedi

It’s another mouth-watering episode of the city’s only podcast devoted to Eatin’ and Drinkin’, and there’s a lot to say.

First we welcome Michael Motamedi to the studio from Rabbit Hole Distillery, where this week in NuLu the boutique bourbonists are preparing their first batch of product from the shiny new distillery, which just had its ribbon-cutting last month. Motamedi is a former chef who describes his trek to Louisville as a serendipitous journey.

Rick and Carolyn offer up a new segment – Eat of the Week. Carolyn describes her rendezvous with Asian-inspired chicken at Chick”n & Mi on Brownsboro Road. Rick ventured into Butchertown for a date with Naive, the new healthy food spot.

In the news, there’s a bar with a view making its debut at Copper & Kings, a happy result of the Kentucky legislature’s decision to allow distillery’s to serve their product on premises, a law that also affects our new friends at Rabbit Hole. We peaked at a list that showed 41 restaurants have opened since the beginning of the year, and 34 are on the way. That includes, we hope, the new Big Woods restaurant and brewery rumored to be in the works at Waterfront Park.
Our sponsor, Fourth Street Live, is bringing the Average White Band to town as it continues to bring quality concerts downtown.

There’s plenty more to do in our bustling city, and you can see details at EatDrinkTalk.net in addition to listening to this great podcast. Please tell your friends and catch us on iTunes.
