On our recent trip to Louisville, we had plenty of time before we had to be in town, so we decided to take our time and enjoy a bit of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, specifically taking time to visit both the Maker’s Mark and Jim Beam Distilleries. Since much of the trail is in largely rural areas, there wasn’t much to choose from, but we managed to find a unique place in none other than Bardstown, Ky.
Kreso’s Family Restaurant is tucked into a restored theater in Bardstown’s downtown district, and features everything from burgers to (surprising to us) german/eastern european dishes.
The Bosnian salad was a mixture of cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, feta cheese and eggs on fresh Romaine lettuce. The dressing was a light house vinaigrette with a distinct lemon flavor. It was very refreshing after a hard morning of touring distilleries.
Having had an excellent experience with Jaeger-Schnitzel in a tiny place in Mobile, Alabama, I decided to give Kreso’s Weiner-Schnitzel a shot. What came out was a tasty, lightly breaded and fried chicken breast that had been pounded flat. The chicken had a light poultry-ish seasoning that I augmented with the lemon slice, which pared well with the lightly seasoned egg noodles that it came with.
Sarah chose the goulash, which featured a meaty concoction with a rich sauce on top of the same noodles that came with my dish. The meat was tender and the sauce featured an interesting (in a good way) combination of carrots, onions and parsley in a medium beef broth.Kreso’s Restaurant 218 N 3rd St
