Food suggestions for a Kentucky road trip! [Owensboro, Bardstown, Louisville, Lexington and in-between]

Hello. My girlfriend and I will be traveling through Kentucky on a road trip. We would love to explore some of the local food Kentucky has to offer. We know we will be going through Owensboro for BBQ. Any picks for the best BBQ in Owensboro? I'm especially interested in mutton. We will also be going through Bardstown and the bourbon trail area. Food suggestions or off-the-beaten-path distillery suggestions? Also would be interested in suggestions for Louisville and Lexington. We're from New York, so we're not really interested in fine dining. We would like suggestions that include home-style southern, diners, local specialties and the likes. Also, where can we sample some Kentucky country ham? One last question: Do people in Kentucky actually eat/appreciate the hot brown or is that for tourists? Sorry if the post was rambling but we're excited to see what Kentucky has to offer. Thanks in advance!

Best Liver (and onions? w/ bacon?)

I know this post is super old but if you're still interested I had a really great pig liver dish with pancetta at Peasant in Nolita. It was excellent.

Moderately priced restaurant recommendations in Melbourne CBD

Hi. I'm from the U.S. and will be visiting Melbourne for five nights in late July with my girlfriend, who is in graduate school in Sydney. We'll be staying in the CBD and would love some not-too-expensive restaurant recommendations, preferably within walking distance. I really appreciate restaurant programs that include "farm to table", in-house charcuterie, offal, and just good, straight-forward food--that kind of restaurant, if that makes sense (not interested in Vue de Monde and the like, not that we could afford it). We already plan on going to Cumulus Inc. for dinner on one night. How is La Luna Bistro? The menu looks good and I like the in-house aging and charcuterie. I'm a little off-put by the chef's status as television star, though. Same with Josie Bones. I'm a bit of a Europhile too, so things along that line would be nice. How is City Wine Shop?

Would also love some breakfast/lunch recommendations along the same lines. The Hardware Societe looks good, for instance.

Places for craft beers?

Lastly, I'm a barista by trade, so great coffee is a must. Recommendations there?

Sorry for the meandering post, but I'm very excited to experience all the great things that Melbourne has to offer. (Which seems like a lot!)

Thanks in advance!
