La Chasse founder and owner Isaac Fox was pleased to appear on a recent edition of the Louisville Perspectives podcast, hosted by Lenihan Sotheby’s International Realty. The show takes a look at the best local businesses in Louisville that make the city a fun and interesting place to live.
Whether you’ve been to see us at 1359 Bardstown Road in The Highlands or you’re new to discovering our rustic, wood-fired French comfort food, the podcast is a great way to learn more about the story behind La Chasse and what makes the restaurant unique.
“One of the big things we wanted to avoid was the stereotype of French Haute Cuisine – the white tablecloths, the dinner jackets, the snobbish attitudes,” Fox explained on the show. “We wanted “brovence” – authentic French comfort food – game, braised foods, fresh herbs, roasted vegetables, and great sauces.”
PERSPECTIVES – LOUISVILLE REAL ESTATE, LIFE AND CULTURE
Have You Tried One Of Our Cocktails Yet??
- With his background in mixology and bar management, Fox was excited to feature a robust menu of 40 craft cocktails.
- There is something for everyone in our cocktails, which are made with high-quality European liqueurs, fresh herbs & juices.
- Every season, we have a new list of cocktails, specifically paired to the dinner menu ingredients.
- In addition to the cocktail menu, our wine list features 80-90 bottles, including Southern French wines and rare treats.
- Within the next year, we hope to develop a house blend of wine, produced by a small French winery.
The Highlands Is The Perfect Place To Try Something New.
“I love the vibe… I love the diversity… I love the fact that I can walk anywhere,” Fox says of The Highlands, where he based his business. It’s been a joy to operate in the heart of “Restaurant Row,” alongside well-known establishments like Lilly’s, Jack Fry’s, and Seviche.
The braised rabbit may be considered our signature dish, but you’ll also find a rotating selection of pheasant, duck, elk, venison and wild boar, depending on the season. This is all very apt, considering “La Chasse” means “the hunt” in French. You may notice Spanish or Italian ingredients from time to time, but it’s French comfort food that we’re passionate about.
You can stop by our 18-seat bar for a drink and a bite off our pub menu, or you may make a reservation on Open Table. More information can be found at www.lachasselouisville.com, or by calling 502-822-3963.
