eNewsChannels: Louisville restaurant

LOUISVILLE, Ky. /eNewsChannels/ — NEWS: Today, Papalinos Italian Pub, voted Best Pizza in Louisville by Louisville Magazine readers, announces it is looking for a new home in the Highlands for its Baxter Ave. location. The Papalinos Baxter Avenue restaurant was the launch site for the brand and has a strong following from the Louisville Highlands community. Papalinos wants to enhance their brand and menu offering and experience, and will be closing the Baxter location operations on Friday September, 26, 2014.

On the restaurant closing and search, Papalinos spokesperson Luke Blackburn said, “We love being in the highlands and want to continue to make the best pizza for our faithful followers. And while Baxter Ave. was our beginning, the site has experienced difficulties and is not the best for our new format in line with our new Italian Pub concept. We know it will be an inconvenient gap as we relocate and re-build, but we are confident that a new home will carry on our great Papalinos Pizza experience and then some.”

The new Papalinos Italian Pub restaurant concept, one of which is located in Springhurst in Louisville’s east end, includes a full bar featuring special Italian cocktails, a variety of Italian regional wines, extended menu items from Italian-inspired pastas and salads to fresh made desserts, and of course their signature Papalinos pizza.

“We don’t want to mess with what makes us a favorite, but we know we can do so much more with the brand in the right location,” says Blackburn.
