80 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 7.19 "Danny Mac's Pizza is about 200 paces from my studio at the Mellwood Art Center. The crust, lightly dusted with cornmeal on the bottom, has a nice scorch. Two-dollar slices washed down with a $3 craft beer make a great midday break for a hungry potter." — Wayne Ferguson, artist "Varanese on a warm spring evening, with the doors open and the breeze drifting in." — Cynthia Knapek, Leadership Louisville president "Israel's Delicias De Mexico Gourmet in New Albany: chicken chimichanga, three salsas and chips, freshly made guac!" — Scott Scarboro, artist "Drive to the humble, low-slung, one-story Passtime Fish House in J-town and you can almost smell the salty water." — Wayne Ferguson "Sikil pak at the Mayan Cafe is the best chip dip in town." — Scott Carney, Wax Fang frontman "The mussels appetizer at Decca makes for a great table share or main." — Pablo Holmes, retired stage manager at Actors Theatre "I don't really enjoy barbecue at all — unless it is Shack in the Back. This little cabin in Fairdale serves up the best smoked turkey ribs with white sauce. I don't know what is in that sauce, but it is enough to keep me driving out for more." — Jama Vogt, Atherton High School teacher "The Grape Leaf always rocks out veggies in the best possible way." — Aerine Mountain, co-owner of MountainFit Wellness "Brussels sprouts with a twist all over town. Ostra is a favorite." — Sabine Beate, co-owner of the Inner Warrior yoga studio "Pizza Lupo has unique toppings and flavor that hits you in the face — in the best sorta way. I personally like honey on the margherita pizza." — Gabriella Gaona, co-owner of the Inner Warrior yoga studio "My favorite restaurant is this little family-owned Mexican joint on lower Brownsboro Road called Cafe Aroma. Authentic, cheap, delicious. Reminds me of when I have been to Mexico." — Katy Delahanty, Portland Museum board member and Louisville Visual Art outreach program director "If you are on the hunt for some of the best chilaquiles in town, Con Huevos is the place. I think it is the freshness of the ingredients that hits me." — Juan Merizalde, manager of the Old Forester distillery on Whiskey Row "The meatball sandwich at bar Vetti has beef from 3D Valley Farms and is topped with oregano, Parmesan cheese and pickled cherry peppers, served on a potato bun. They patty the meat and cook it in the pizza oven. Awesome flavor." — Paco Garcia, executive chef at Con Huevos "Tomato artichoke soup at the Cheddar Box in Middletown. Could eat it every day!" — Rachel Platt, director of community engagement at the Frazier History Museum "Picking blueberries at Bryant's in Southern Indiana." — Sara Callaway, director of the Louisville Academy of Music "Rawnaissance Desserts. Organic, vegan, delicious. And I don't have to feel guilty about it. They also have gelato!" — Ashleigh Glickley, Hawthorne Elementary teacher "The cold-brew coffee at Red Hot Roasters is high in caffeine and easy on the tummy." — Skylar Smith, artist "Avocado Dream smoothie at LIFEbar in Rainbow Blossom." — Skylar Smith "I always begin my journey at Nouvelle Bar & Bottle by asking co-owner Aaron Dawkins for his current favorites from Spain or Portugal and go with his recommendation." — DJ Kim Sorise Cafe Aroma, where an immigrant can work with her children close by, their toys on the floor, their artwork on the walls. Where a refrigerator full of Jarritos sodas sits under an oval plaque that reads "God Bless America." — contributing writer Taylor Killough "I love that Phocus sparkling water is a pick-me-up without junk in it." — Maggie Keith, Foxhollow Farm owner "Be ready for some incredible stories from Lori the waitress at Spring Street Bar and Grill. She'll make your jaw drop and have you rolling on the floor laughing." — Andrew Llewellyn, owner of Liège & Dairy "I like to go to Play every Wednesday night for salsa and bachata dancing." — Paco Garcia "There are some regular karaoke performers at Patrick's who are really good, but it's not intimidating if you are a newbie." — Skylar Smith "The best place to get a Yoo-hoo and play N64 is Kaiju." — Karen Ledford of the band GRLwood "Landing a booth at the Back Door." — Jessica George, executive director of Revolutions Per Minute
