Both Steve and Rick were on the road last week, enjoying the finest in drinking and dining in New York and Michigan. But there is plenty going on back home, including news that chef Edward Lee (610 Magnolia, MilkWood) is cooking up a new concept and location in Louisville. The news is also good for consumers along Goss Ave., where Steve enjoyed stops at the new Germantown Craft House and The Pearl. Steve also describes some highlights from his trip to New York City, including stops at two of the estimated 24,000 restaurants in Manhattan. Meanwhile, in Michigan, Rick took in a Tigers game and notes the excitement of downtown Detroit.

In Kevin Grangier, Steve’s guest, Louisville has one of the most creative entrepreneurs in the dining industry. Steve asks Kevin how he’s able to operate three relatively new concepts, including the just-opened Kevin’s Picnic in Anchorage. Rick’s talk with Jeff Stum of Spicewood Branding details the products that company has brought to market, although Jeff explains that it’s time to shut down Spicewood so he and partner Paul Tuell can focus most of their efforts on their own brand, Ballotin Chocolate Whiskey.

As always, we talk about some great new hotspots in town, and the place to be on Saturday — the Bourbon Mixer. Be sure to check out more news about food and drink
