The English Grill - The Finest of all Downtown Louisville Restaurants
Welcome to the English Grill, finest of all downtown Louisville restaurants. As much a part of Louisville's history as the Brown Hotel itself, Among the finest downtown Louisville restaurants the English Grill not only affords guests of the Brown Hotel an incredible dining experience, the restaurant sets the standard for all Louisville, KY, fine dining establishments. From meeting attendees, couples celebrating their anniversaries, newlyweds and graduation dinner celebrants to soldiers on leave with their children and spouses or those celebrating the magic of the Kentucky Derby—the English Grill has meant so much to so many.
The English Grill stands as a tribute to J. Graham Brown, the original owner.

The English Grill menu offers an eclectic selection of tempting appetizers, homemade soups, salads and entrees—all crafted by our talented, creative culinary team directed by Executive Chef Laurent Geroli.

The Chef's Table
The English Grill features two uniquely different Chef's Tables. The "Classic Chef's Table" accommodates four to eight guests. Diners view the work on the kitchen line—guests are encouraged to walk the line to inspect the offerings from the culinary staff—making the celebration an even more enjoyable event. Business gatherings, birthdays, anniversaries and visiting dignitaries have all been guests of the Classic Chef's Table. The seven course meal is prepared with wine pairings from the English Grill's Sommelier.
The "Theater Chef's Table" is on the working side of the kitchen. This table accommodates up to 16 guests and incorporates the concept of small-plate dining, complete with four distinct beverage pairings—a bourbon cocktail, red and white wine, and a sparkling wine for dessert. Here, Chef Geroli is only a few feet away from guests and the table resembles a cooking class. Please make reservations 48 hours in advance for the Chef's Table by calling Ellen Crouch.
