This upscale eatery's regal setting provides the backdrop for sumptuous feasts at the historic Brown Hotel.. The Scene The English Grill is located off the majestic lobby of the historic Brown Hotel, where Kentucky's famous Hot Brown Sandwich was invented in the 1920s. The London club atmosphere of the handsome dining room makes you feel like a titled lady or gent with its horse paintings and premium bourbon bar.
The Food A creative menu combines regional Kentucky and Pacific Rim ingredients with Continental cooking sensibilities. Reduced sauces simmer for days. Corn bread and country ham garnishes an arugula salad, mixing a hint of sweetness with mustardy bite. Ginger accents the chestnut stuffing with succulent duck and apple butter blends with cream, providing a rich sauce for applewood-smoked chicken. The dessert souffl?s are so light, yet rich, that you magically have room for a grand finale to the meal.
