Hey, y’all! There are few things that I love more than experiencing a new restaurant. While there are still a few restaurants that are new-to-me in the city, that list is becoming smaller and smaller. That said, I was elated to try CC’s Low Carb Kitchen in Downtown Louisville last weekend. The best part? While the food and drinks were delicious, we got to enjoy them with an intimate, entertaining drag show — one of the best that I’ve been to in years!

CC’s Low Carb Kitchen: Delicious Eats + Drag Brunch In Downtown Louisville

Low carb food often gets a bad reputation and CC’s aims to fight that notion. Their meals do not rely solely on cauliflower or zoodles — both of which I love, though both of which are over-represented. The from-scratch menu at CC’s features traditional, low carb pastas, breads, rolls, flatbreads, and elevated comfort foods.

What I Ordered

To start off your brunch, you must order one of their Bloody Mary’s — some of which are spectacles for the eye! The Big Dick features a 12″ sausage and olives, The By The Sea features shrimp and Old Bay Seasoning, the Bacon Bloody features candied bacon, while the Big Ass Bloody is the true wonder: a chicken wing, 12″ sausage, cheese, olives, shrimp, and other trimmings of the chef’s choice.

I then started with the Ratatouille Bruschetta (house-made bread, summer squash, roasted tomatoes, chimichurri).

For my main course, I had the Rueben, which was absolutely delicious: house-made bread, slow-roasted corned beef, kraut, Corey’s sauce, and cheese. Seriously… mouthwatering.

I also had the opportunity to try the CC’s Big Ass Biscuits & Gravy: a “big ass biscuit”, Jake’s sausage gravy, an egg, and your meat of choice.

Other menu highlights include: chicken and waffles, stuffed french toast, breakfast tacos, and the pimento cheese hushpuppies. I’m excited to go back to try them!

The Drag Show

I mentioned that the drag show was extraordinary, as it was the Red Carpet Brunch. The cast included local favorites Tova Ura Vitch (a fabulous hostess and emcee) and male-illusionist TB Sparrow, along with some of the nation’s top female illusionists: Andora Tetee, Tiffany Bonet, and Savannah Stevens.

Tova kicked off the show with a fast-paced number, followed by her Liza Minnelli impersonation.

TB featured Jack Sparrow and Edward Scissorhands.

Andora served Madonna and Cher.

Tiffany Bonet started with Tina and rocked my soul with Aretha Franklin (my favorite diva).

Last, but not least, Savannah performed as both Reba and Shania.

The best part of the show? CC’s has a strong commitment to charity. This month’s charity is the House of Ruth, with a new charity to be announced on a monthly basis. I appreciate their commitment to both funding and uplifting the community!
