Philly has its cheese steak, New Orleans – the muffaletta and Chicago its beloved hotdog. For nearly 90 years, Louisville diners have been enjoying an open-faced turkey sandwich with Mornay sauce, cheese, bacon and tomato that goes by the name of the “Hot Brown” on menus throughout the city.
The Louisville Convention and Visitors Bureau is introducing the Hot Brown Hop, a compilation of the local restaurants that feature a Hot Brown or a Hot Brown inspired menu item, to highlight the local food scene and pay homage to the famous dish that originated at the Brown Hotel.
Over 40 restaurants throughout Louisville are featured on the Hot Brown Hop, including its inventor and namesake the Brown Hotel. Many are within walking distance of each other downtown, on Bardstown Road, and Frankfort Avenue. Local chefs have taken some creative liberty on the original recipe with twists including a Hot Brown Soup, Hot Brown Pizza, Hot Brown Quesadilla, Pasta and even breakfast versions complete with an egg.
“The Hot Brown is without a doubt our most popular menu item – and we serve it at breakfast, lunch and dinner. People drive for hundreds of miles for this sandwich and we hope the Hot Brown Hop will encourage even more diners to come try it.” – Brad Walker, General Manager of the Brown Hotel.
