Decca for Soulful Contemporary Cuisine and Live Music Every Week


A soulful, contemporary restaurant, Decca is located on Louisville’s East Market Street. The venue brings the talent of San Francisco chef Annie Pettry to the south. Committed to locally farmed and small production ingredients, the building also impresses.

They’ve set up shop in a historically renovated 1870’s building, and its beautiful brick and limestone cellar features artists every week.

For example, Wednesday is new artist night featuring music, film, comedy and performance art and over the summers, they have a number of events on their outdoor stage as well.

Here’s a sampling of some of their appetizers: Hard Wood Grilled Asparagus, Sabayon, Parmesan Reggiano, Diver Scallop Crudo, Cantaloupe, Cucumber and Scallion Oil, Mussels, Smoked Fennel Fume, Saffron Aioli and their Grilled Bread, Duck Liver Terrine, Cherry Mostarda, Grilled Bread with Pickled Vegetables.

They also offer a couple of tasty salads, including one with young mustard greens with green apple, peanut brittle and farmhouse bleu gouda and a garden beet salad with baby greens, aged goat cheese and a walnut vinaigrette.


Pasta dishes include Fresh Tagliatelle, Goat Bolognese, Green Olives with a Pecorino Toscano, Spaghettini, Sea Urchin, Spring Peas served with toasted garlic, and a Ricotta Ravioli, Charred Corn, and Red Veined Sorrel.

Recommended entrees include Slow Braised Beef Cheek, Horseradish Crème Fraiche and Watercress, Seared Texas Redfish, Shaved Sweet Peppers, Heirloom Eggplant and Romesco, Wood Grilled Pork Chop, Braised Savoy Cabbage and Caraway, Cider Jus, White Shrimp a la Plancha, Spanish Chorizo, Baked Gigante Beans served with Chermoula and the Wood Grilled Skirt Steak, Harissa, Grilled Carrots topped with preserved lemon.
