You may have noticed that Baby D’s Bagel and Deli on Highland Ave at Baxter has closed its doors. Sadly, there will be no more steamed bagel sandwiches. One could sit and sulk about the departure of our short-lived, yet delicious steamed bagel shop mirrored after a late-night eatery at my alma mater, Miami of Ohio. But if you’re like me, instead of sulking you just want to know what’s going to take its place. Well you may not have to wait too long. A little birdie told me that the lease has already been signed to take over the spot at 2009 Highland Ave, and it’s going to be awesome!

Soon, the Highlands and all of Louisville will be introduced to our first authentic ramen restaurant. When you hear the word “ramen”, do you immediately think of the broke college student eating 49 cent packages of dust? Authentic ramen is quite different. Ramen is basically an authentic Japanese noodle soup dish. These dishes typically incorporate a wheat noodle in a meat or fish broth with soy, miso, etc, and topped with all sorts of meat and veggie combinations. The result is a fantastic meal! This new Highlands restaurant will also be serving up homemade dumplings. I can only imagine the menu and the amazing combinations that will be featured.

Since this is brand new info, there aren’t a lot of specifics right now. All I can tell you is that the chefs/owners are exploding on the Louisville food scene as we speak. You can expect some amazing creativity and lots of love to be put into this new venture. I can’t wait! I promise to update you next week when I am at liberty to speak more freely. In the mean time, you can check out a similar concept from my friend, Mike Kopfman, who recently opened a restaurant like this in Columbus, OH.

Thinking about moving to Louisville or relocating within Louisville? I would love to speak with you about your next home – 502.509.9278 –
