For LEO Weekly’s upcoming 2008 Dinning Guide, I’ve decided to eat only in West Louisville for the next two weeks. The idea sort grew out of the overarching findings covered in a piece I wrote last year on food security, ‘Eating Ourselves to Death’. The rules are very simple. I can only eat food from locations in the West End, which I’ve defined generically as anyplace west of 9th street and north of Algonquin Parkway. Though a pretty large geographic area the food options are pretty dismal.
From time to time I’ll post place I eat, how tasty or disgusting the food, and the status of food security in Louisville. I started yesterday with a homemade lunch from my groceries bought at the Kroger on the 28th & Broadway Kroger, one of only two full grocers in a part of the city that has well over 80,000 people.
Today I ate lunch at Expressions of You coffeehouse, the only one of its kind in West Louisville. James Linton, who co-owns the place with his wife Camille, said they’re the only restaurant in the West End that doesn’t serve fried food. We’ll see if that’s true, but I’m betting he’s right.
