This week in Louisville food news, tacos and burritos are the "it" item. A family-run taco restaurant, I Love Tacos, opened its second location in the former Highlands Panera, and a New Jersey-based burrito chain, Bubbakoo's Burritos, also opened its first area location in east Louisville. 

Kind of makes you want tacos, now, huh? If you go out and grab some, make sure you shop local. It's still the darkest timeline for Louisville restaurateurs.

Food access in west Louisville — For decades, thousands of people living in the city's segregated West End have had inadequate access to fresh, affordable food. That's changed over the last six months, with four Black-led grocery stores working together to bring better food to the area. Meet the Black women leading the charge. 

More than feeding the homeless — Since Feed Louisville was founded last March, it's served about 7,000 meals per month to the homeless and food insecure. But the organization's goals stretch beyond food: they're trying to find out what people's needs are and fill them as best they can. 

Neighborhood diners talk survival — We checked in with two longstanding Louisville diners, Check's Cafe and D. Nalley's. They're surviving, but it's hard, with numbers "drastically" down from previous years. 

A very special wine cellar — The Baker-Bird Winery in Augusta, Kentucky is on the National Register of Historic Places, and it's the only winery in the country to survive a Civil War battle. Step through the "regal iron gate" guarding this piece of Kentucky history. 

Thank you for reading, stay warm and stay safe!
