“Not a German Restaurant!”

For some, "German food" may conjure images of schnitzel with thick gravy, cabbage and naps. For us, "German food" is one of our many inspirations, but not the sole basis of what we do. WHAT WE DO IS CREATE FRESHLY PREPARED FOOD: MODERN VARIATIONS ON CLASSIC FLAVORS USING TRADITIONAL FRENCH METHODS. MOST OF OUR MEATS AND CHEESES ARE FROM INDEPENDENT KENTUCKY AND INDIANA FARMERS AND OUR PRODUCE — LIKE OUR MENU — IS APPROPRIATE TO EACH SEASON. Another inspiration is beer. Without it, Eiderdown may not have been conceived or actualized. With our 21 draft beers, we aspire to cover a broad range of stylistic bases, offer several esoteric choices in imported and craft beers and also be able to place a bottle of Stroh's in the hand of someone who wants to pour a Stroh's into his or her mouth. We follow a similar ethos in choosing our wine list. As for the German association, we are proudly located in the Germantown neighborhood in Louisville, Kentucky. "Eiderdown" may sound Germanic, but it is not. We also serve a handful of great German beers and Austrian wines, but that's because we are huge fans of the way they taste and how they taste with our food. And ultimately, food is what Eiderdown is about. We hope the liberties we take with it evoke a sense of freedom in each of our guests and that your visits with us are confounding, cohesive and commendable. With that in mind, feel free to categorize us any way you like; European-inspired Southern food is what we had in mind.

I loved the atmosphere- it was like being at your relative's house, but nicer. The pretzels and Brussels sprouts were the best apps, and even though most people ordered the spätzle, I'd have to say that the pork sandwich on the pretzel bun was a dark horse favorite. Good cocktails and beer selection too, but service was a little slow

It's hipster German food, which is an interesting concept but not really my thing. I did enjoy the appetizers (especially the pretzels) but the main courses were just OK. The drink menu was really good as well. There wasn't much else near it and it's kind of out of the way, and it was a little pricey for what we got. The service wasn't great, but I think that was because we had a large group.
