Once you find it, you'll remember it as a standout
It had been a long day of visiting distilleries, so we did what any weary travellers would do–ask our host for a dinner recommendation and then act on her advice. Lisa Marie sent us to The Rickhouse in Bardstown with the promise of a first class steakhouse.

We used our trusty gps as we pulled into the parking lot with Siri's insistence that the restaurant was on our right. It was a middle school building, so we started wandering the parking lot when we saw a small sign on a gate to the left of the street. We had found it! The lower level interior rooms carried the theme of a rick house, or bourbon barrel storage area, with its intimate space and barrels throughout.

|6 oz. Prime Cut Filet and Brussels Sprouts|
|BBQ Bourbon Chicken Half|
The Brussels Sprouts, sautéed with apples, bacon, cranberries, and brown sugar and bourbon would hold up on any menu.

I couldn't believe we were actually entertaining the idea of dessert, but they had beckoned us since first seeing them on the menu. One of each for the table would satisfy our curiosity. We thought the Chocolate and Orange Bread Pudding would be the star, but the Bourbon Brownie a la Mode was the favorite all around. After all, we were in the Bourbon Capital of the World so what did we expect?
