Tour Italy with Eddie Merlot’s

Tour of Italy menu items

Summer is, at long last, right around the corner. And with that news, we’re dreaming of the lush green landscape and hearty, warm-weather flavors of Italy. We hope that you’ll join us on a culinary tour of Italia as Eddie Merlot’s introduces a new Tour of Italy menu beginning May 1, which will run through July 3. The new menu features bold new flavors and true Italian cuisine, starting at $24.95. We’ve paired it with wine from an exceptional Italian vineyard, Santa Cristina. (Proof that the wine really is Italian: their Facebook page is entirely in Italian!).

One caveat: Our Louisville location won’t be offering the Tour of Italy menu until Monday, May 9, due to the Kentucky Derby on May 7.

Join us for this tempting menu:

Appetizers

Clams Posillipo – Littleneck Clams simmered in tomato sauce, clam broth and garlic butter

Flatbread – with grilled figs, arugula and prosciutto

Entrees
