Volare - Louisville, KY

“One of Louisville’s elite spots,” writes restaurant critic Marty Rosen of the Courier-Journal, Volare is “a bastion of rigorous continental techniques and artful presentation.” The credit goes to innovative chef Josh Moore, who will be presenting a profoundly summery, locally sourced menu of his creative Italian cuisine.
