It can be argued that chef Bruce Ucán's restaurant started the whole "NuLu" phenomenon on East Market Street. Raised in the Yucatan before arriving in Louisville as a young man, Ucán's indigenously inspired farm-to-table restaurant fuses traditional Mayan flavors, ingredients and cooking techniques with local, sustainably farmed products to create original, amazing and creative meals. Yucatec salbutes are excellent, as is the locally sourced pork in Ucán's cochinita pibil. There's also a nicely curated craft cocktail list, and the chef's charred-tender tok-sel lima beans are a local legend.
