On this week’s EatDrinkTalk podcast, we discuss a bit of sad news as Clay Wallace, owner and chef at Café Lou Lou, closed his longstanding Douglass Loop location after a lengthy dispute with his landlord. On the bright side we talk about Ciao, a new Italian restaurant under construction in the former Baxter Station space. Italian grub would be a great addition to the Irish Hill and/or Phoenix Hill eatin’ line-up.

Depending on whose story you believe, Cahoots, the troubled bar that lost its liquor license for a month last winter, isn’t closing. Or maybe it is. A pair of published stories reveal differing stories from its landlord and the business’s owner. And if you can believe anything about the local restaurant scene, it’s that another restaurant is offering brunch. This weekend, Boombozz Pizza & Taphouse in the Highlands will begin brunch service selling breakfast pizzas and multiple waffle choices. Seems this brunch craze won’t end anytime soon.

As always, we save the best for last, and that includes this week’s interviews. Rick sits down with Corky Taylor, co-owner of Kentucky Peerless Distilling Co., the 1-year-old whiskey distillery in downtown Louisville. Taylor’s story of entrepreneurism is fascinating on its own, but what Rick sees at the distillery blows his mind. And he also gets to sample its bourbon right from the barrel. (Sorry, folks, but it won’t be released until 2019.) And speaking of bourbon, Steve meets up with Adam Johnson, director of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and an organizer of this month’s Kentucky Bourbon Affair. If you like Kentucky brown liquor, this is an event you don’t want to miss. Listen in while Johnson pours out the details.

Let us know what you think of the show by emailing Steve@eatdrinktalk.net or Rick@eatdrinktalk.net. And while you’re at it, sends us tips and tidbits about restaurant and bar news items, really cool restaurant personalities we should interview or your favorite places to eat and drink in Louisville!
