Romantic Restaurants: The Marketplace At Theater Square

Time to book your Valentine's Day reservation! Consider this romantic restaurant: The Marketplace at Theater Square. Or check out this Italian spot or this historic one.

In The Marketplace's eclectic setting, you can find many romantic areas. Designed in the building that once housed the Kentucky Theater, this restaurant offers several different dining settings. Every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday nights from 7-10 p.m., find a seat in the main lounge and enjoy listening to VoJazz, a local jazz trio.

Or if you are in the theater district of town and want to get some dinner before the event or show, see what is happening this weekend in Louisville!

Get a preview of The Marketplace even before you visit through food writer and photographer Melissa Donald's photo story:

Main Lounge area.



VoJazz ~ Local jazz trio.
Part of the Main Lounge area.  Check out the theater-like lighting.  


This indoor garden-like area is located behind the bar in the Main Lounge. The fountain in the center of the room creates a romantic outdoor atmosphere indoors. There is a skylight above the fountain, adding to this indoor/outdoor space. This area is one of the most popular romantic spaces in the restaurant — close enough to still hear VoJazz.



This is a popular dinner special: Sesame Seared Kajiki (Blue Marlin) over roasted potatoes, Gigande beans, and kale.  It's topped with a spicy tomato and Pancetta sauce and drizzled with a Balsamic glaze. Delicious!

     
Hand-rolled Semolina pasta with feta cheese, Kalamata olives, toasted pine nuts, kale, and roasted tomatoes. This dish is fantastic! I love the combination of olives with roasted tomatoes.
A separate bar area with its own entrance. This space is popular during Happy Hour.
Roasted Corn and Risotto Fritters with tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese. A perfect starter for two!
