Colterra, Part Duex
If you read our magazine often, you know we’re extremely fond of chef Bradford Heap and his quaint Niwot eatery Colterra inspired by the French countryside. You probably don’t know that we were always fond of Tom’s Tavern on Pearl Street, too. So after Tom’s passing and the burger joint’s subsequent closing, we were depressed—a feeling shared by hordes of others. For the past few months, we’ve often wondered when that space at the corner of 10th and Pearl would get filled. The guessing is over: We
just got word that Bradford is extending his business into that space. While he is mum on what type of cuisine he’ll be serving—other than it won’t be a burger place like Tom’s—we’re sure it’ll be pretty damn good. Our stomachs are already rumbling for what new dishes Bradford will offer up on Pearl Street. We’ll keep you posted on opening dates and details.
Further Proof That Good Food Sells
Who says the restaurant business is soft? Certainly not us. Nor Bradford Heap who, as mentioned above, is about to launch a new restaurant, or the proprietors of one of Louisville’s newest eateries, Tibet’s. Open less than a year, Tibet’s features unique Nepalese cuisine. It showcases authentic
Buddhist dishes like saag paneer alongside more esoteric entrées like the Tibetan Thukpa—a noodle bowl with vegetables
and, should you desire, yak. For information on Tibet’s, 321 McCaslin Blvd., Louisville, call 303.665.2557
Finally, a Farmers’ Market in Lafayette
Not having a farmers’ market seemed like a void on Lafayette’s monthly calendar. That is until the city opened the gates to its very own version late last month. The Lafayette Farmers’ Market features the usual: fresh produce, locally made crafts, baked goods, sunshine and more. Expect this to be a huge draw each week to Old Town. The Farmers’ Market, sponsored by the Lafayette Urban Renewal Authority, debuted July 24, and will run from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursdays at the corner of West Chester Street and Public Road.
