Best Super Seasonal Supper: Bouquet Restaurant & Wine Bar

A pillar of Covington’s MainStrasse dining strip, Bouquet Restaurant & Wine Bar merits a visit whenever the seasons change. Chef Stephen Williams leads a kitchen that epitomizes farm-to-table cooking, and Bouquet’s website lists more than two-dozen local purveyors of produce, fish, dairy products and meats. Williams takes the finest local ingredients — Greensleeves Farm produce and Sheltowee mushrooms are favorites — and puts a modern spin on classic dishes like sirloin steak with pickled rutabaga or paddlefish with black rice. Vegans will love the fact that you can substitute tofu for any protein, but don’t miss The Motherboard, one of the best housemade charcuterie platters in town and a perennial favorite of visiting chefs.
