Given that Bristol is a Louisville classic, it’s no shock that its menu would boast a Hot Brown worth cheating on your diet. Slices of French bread serve as the foundation for this open-faced sandwich of sorts, while roast turkey, crisp bacon, and tomato swim in a sea of house Mornay sauce and plenty of cheddar cheese. We prefer to enjoy our Bristol Hot Brown at the original Highlands location, particularly if a seat on the patio is free!
Dubbed “The Hotter Brown,” this one, crafted by the creative culinary crew at the Village Anchor, is anything but ordinary. Pulled roast chicken takes the place of turkey in this version, and mingles with a rich sourdough stuffing and a cheddar-parmesan Mornay sauce. Candied bacon crowns this whimsical take on a classic, and adds a touch of sweet to an otherwise decidedly savory dish.
