LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 5.19 67 Naive If you have a Pinterest board devoted to interior design, you've already got a good sense of Naive, the Butchertown restaurant across from Pyro Gallery. All the current trends are accounted for. Hexagonal tile transitioning into hardwood? Check. Clusters of hanging lights? Check. A ropey tapestry? Check. Add to that a snake plant by the window, what looks like a ficus in a woven basket further back, and neon signs, one over the bar reading, in cursive: caffeine. A "plant-based eatery with meat options" according to its website, Naive offers everything from beet hummus (a vibrant dish that could manage its own Instagram account) to General Tso's cauliflower (addictive) to — wow, really? — a pulled- pork sandwich (with maple teriyaki and pickled shallots). I would wife my chicken pesto sandwich, with a slab of roasted red pepper, gooey mozzarella and a slathering of potent walnut pesto that turns the top ciabatta bun a forest-canopy green. After dinner, hit up the extensive coffee bar menu for an Ex Mrs. Palmer (espresso, lemonade, activated charcoal), a Naked Lunch (mint tea, honey, orange blossom, and CBD oil in honor of American writer William S. Burroughs), or, my fave, a simple espresso. 1001 E. Washington St. — Dylon Jones
