Anything but ordinary

Guacamole Mexican Louisville restaurant has vibrant design, food

We’re a discerning bunch, right here in Louisville and just obtaining best-notch food isn’t sufficient to slash it on our culinary scene.

Which is definitely true if you check with Yani Martinez, govt chef and part of the Olé Hospitality Team about the vision behind the exuberant new Guacamole Present day Mexican restaurant in NuLu at 900 E. Sector St. in the previous Rye location.

So not only did the team go to great lengths to be guaranteed the re-imagined menu at this new site (that replaces the former East Conclusion Guacamole site) was almost nothing small of stellar, they considered each individual aspect of the eating knowledge and every sense that can be stimulated. We’re chatting from the playlist — Yani listened to almost nothing by Mexican tunes for months whilst he curated it — to the about-the-top style aspects that beg to be Instagrammed. 

And the leading-notch dining experience is rooted in the traditions and preferences of Mexico. Yani and his cousin, Olé co-operator Fernando, traveled close to Mexico on a deep dive into the foodways, specially about the food stuff-lovers location of Oaxaca in southwestern Mexico.

And they bypassed the tourists’ meals, he claims, going into grandma’s kitchens to taste the real deal and cajole approaches out of these passionate residence cooks. These authentic dishes handed down for generations impressed just can’t-misses at the cafe like the meltingly tender lamb, which is marinated for 24 several hours and sous-vided, drenched in a sultry mole made up of no fewer than 32 spices and other substances.
