Mesh Restaurant Comes to Louisville

When Louisville’s Azalea restaurant closed its doors in 2007, it left a culinary void along Brownsboro Road. Six years later, the nearby neighborhoods of Rolling Fields and Mockingbird Valley have plenty of retail to choose from—clothing and jewelry stores line the picturesque corridor—but when it comes to food, options are few. Residents must travel to St. Matthew’s, Crescent Hill, or the Highlands to find a sit-down restaurant.

Grisanti Group Commercial Real Estate (Steve Lennon and Paul Grisanti) have teamed with Charles F. Bauer Realty Partnership to bring upscale dining back to Brownsboro Road. Paul Grisanti, the Principal Broker of Grisanti Group Commercial Real Estate, worked in the restaurant industry for thirty years, garnering valuable knowledge about Louisville diners and their specific tastes. So when Mesh, an Indianapolis-based restaurant, approached Grisanti and Bauer about expanding to Louisville, the former Azalea site seemed like a natural fit.

Mesh construction will begin this fall, and will open its doors in 2014. Studio A Architecture has designed a building that will combine Mesh’s contemporary flair with the historic sophistication of Brownsboro Road. The restaurant will use local ingredients, and “blend contemporary elegance and comfort with incredible food and excellent service.” Whether you’re in the mood for a casual, inexpensive night with friends or a date-night splurge, Mesh is sure to have exactly what you’re looking for. They will be open for brunch, lunch, and dinner, and their daily Happy Hour will feature a $2 bar menu. People from all over Louisville will be drawn to Mesh’s unique cuisine and warm atmosphere. The menu is chock full of delicious contemporary American fare, such as Pork Chops with parsnip purée and Swiss chard, Shrimp and Grits, Lamb Chops with mushroom bread pudding, and Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes. The to-die-for dessert offerings include chocolate terrine, praline cheesecake, Graeter’s Ice Cream, and more.

So mark your calendars for the grand opening of Mesh. In just a few short months, Brownsboro Road will once again be a Louisville foodie destination.

Detroit. Style. Pizza.


Loui Loui Pizza

Grisanti Group Commercial Real Estate is pleased to announce that Loui Loui’s Authentic Detroit Style Pizza will be moving in to the former Ferd Grisanti Restaurant, located in the heart of Jeffersontown, at 10212 Taylorsville Rd. Broker Paul Grisanti has a unique relationship to the property:  A former restaurateur, he owned and managed Ferd Grisanti Restaurant for over 30 years. He and Loui Loui’s founder, Mike Spurlock, are confident that the casual eatery will thrive in Jeffersontown. It is scheduled to open its doors in April 2013.


Spurlock, a graduate of Bellarmine University, has spent a decade studying the craft of pizza-making, and is thrilled to bring a taste of Motor City to the Bluegrass. Loui Loui’s will also offer signature dishes like arancini, antipasto salad, pastas, and Italian-inspired desserts, as well as craft beer, wines, and cocktails. Plus, Spurlock and Grisanti will team up to revive some of Ferd’s favorite menu items.

As always, the Grisanti Group is delighted to play a pivotal role in bringing world-class restaurants to Kentuckiana. We thank Spurlock and the rest of our clients who have chosen to work with us. Here’s to many more years of solidifying Louisville’s growing reputation as a foodie destination.
