Eiderdown Review and Business Moves

You still have a day to run out and find the latest LEO before a new issue hits stands tomorrow.  In it you will find a story that narrowly addresses "Is Eiderdown German?  Is Germantown German?," but the article serves moreso as a review of Eiderdown (983 Goss Avenue).  If you can't find a print copy, don't fret! You can find the article here.  Eiderdown is delicious year round, but winter is the perfect time to mosey over and fill up on some spaetzle!

In yesterday's Monday Business Briefing Insider Louisville had blurbs about Germantown businesses That Place on Goss and BEAM Technologies.  Both businesses are moving - SACC board member Alex Fromeyer's business, BEAM Technologies, is looking to ground itself in Germantown while That Place on Goss is making a move to make it That Place No Longer on Goss.

With the plans for the Germantown Mill Lofts under way, we knew all existing businesses in the Antique Mall would have to relocate, including the resident restaurant.  Hoping to stay in the neighborhood, owners Amy and Will Enix scoured existing Germantown properties to find the perfect spot to relocate their restaurant, but to no avail. (That Place on Goss at Flabby's was considered, but plans fell through).  It now looks like Amy and Will have purchased The Rudyard Kipling near 6th and Oak Streets in Old Louisville.

Ken and Sheila Pyle, current owners of The Rudyard Kipling, had this to say about the transaction:
I stand for the possibility of The Rudyard Kipling becoming Louisville and Southern Indiana's favorite bar/restaurant/entertainment venue, and that William and Any Enix become wildly successful, and that the much needed 'hip businesses' immediately rush to Oak Street and Old Louisville to fulfill our 50+ years of dreams.
Our sources tell us that That Place on Goss will remain open until March, up until renovations begin on the mill.

If you haven't had their weekend brunch buffet, your waistline is missing out.  The hot brown casserole is to die for, there is a build-your-own-Bloody Mary bar and a full bar on top of that, create-your-own omelets, and so much more.  Pick up a one-of-a-kind vintage plate, fill it to your hearts desire and kick back in their gorgeous dining room.   Will and Amy strive to use local ingredients, support local artists, and they have been major supporters of the Schnitzelburg Area Community Council.

We are truly heart-broken to see them go, but we wish Will and Amy the best of luck in all their endeavors.  Hey, The Rud is only a quick bike ride away!
