Without question my favorite restaurant in Louisville is Palermo, located on Bardstown Rd. in the Highlands. I always order Lomo, steak tenderloin served on a tiny grill is amazing! I also order the house fries that are a little garlic and spice and a refreshing sangria. The serving staff is fantastic. There is outside dining in the summer so you can take in all the character of the neighborhood. Dinner at Palermo is an event!
