Bourbon, wine dinners will ease fall chill at Dean Corbett’s restaurants during the next few weeks


Chef Dean Corbett

Two of the Commonwealth’s most popular consumables – Dean Corbett’s food and Kentucky bourbon – will make a joint appearance at his three Louisville restaurants this month. You might want to appoint a designated driver.

A four-course menu of fall dishes by Chef Travis Rockwell, accompanied by bartender Joy Perrine’s bourbon creations, will be the highlight at Equus and Jack’s Lounge on Monday, September 24, starting at 7 p.m.

Special bourbon cocktails will partner with each of Rockwell’s offerings:

  • fall spiced duck confit with butternut squash, apple and cranberry salad with apple cider reduction and a Kentucky bourbon cider;
  • bibb salad with goat cheese, almonds and blueberry vinaigrette and Perrine’s own devil in a blue dress cocktail;
  • smoked pork loin with celery root, onion and potato hash with sauce Robert and a classic Manhattan;
  • and, for dessert, a chocolate torte with pecans and bourbon caramel sauce and a bourbon ball cocktail.

There will also be two liquor tastings during the evening.

The cost is $65 per person, plus tax and gratuity. To reserve a place at the table, call 502-897-9721.

Equus and Jack’s Place are at 122 Sears Ave in St. Matthews.

Later that week, Corbett’s: An American Place in Old Brownsboro Crossings will offer a four-course Bourbon & Broadway meal infused with Four Roses bourbon and inspired by “Beauty and the Beast.”

There will also be a drawing for tickets to see the Disney musical at the Kentucky Center in October.

The event is Thursday, September 27, starting at 6:30 p.m. The cost is $75 per person, plus tax and gratuity, and the number to call is 502-327-5058. Guests can also book online at

And the spirits won’t stop flowing in October. On Monday, October 8, at 6:30, in a partnership with Vanguard Wines, Equus and Jack’s Chef Rockwell will present a five-course dinner blending Southern food and Italian vino.

Here’s the menu:

  • amuse bouche with Il Follo Prosecco, extra dry;
  • pork confit with peach chow chow and Fattori Danieli Soave;
  • watermelon salad with feta, pine nuts and melon vinaigrette and Ca’ Rossa Birbet;
  • Creekstone Farms shell island strip steak with parmesan risotto and Farnetella Lucilla Toscana;
  • and dessert is caramel ice cream with Bricco Del Sole Moscato D’Asti.

Rockwell and a Vanguard representative will be available to speak about each wine pairing.

This is, by the way, the first in a series of monthly dining events at the restaurant featuring wines from different regions of the world.

The cost for this one is $60 per person plus tax and gratuity. Same Equus/Jack’s phone number as above.
