For the Comings & Goings department in the current quarterly print issue of Food & Dining Magazine, which is available now at the usual physical locations as well as from issuu, I wrote these words.

The Cottage Inn’s fried chicken livers and Salisbury steak are “86-ed” since the end of its lengthy residency (founded 1929!) at 570 Eastern Parkway. The building and components are now for sale, “turnkey.” Got a half-million? You’re in.

This week writer Matthew Glowicki offered an update in the Louisville Courier Journal.

The Cottage Inn is coming back! What we know about its grand reopening

New owners have bought the Cottage Inn, 570 Eastern Parkway, and plan to reopen in January with the same menu and even the same cook.

“The vision is to bring back the old Cottage Inn,” said co-owner Kevin Trice, who purchased the Bradley neighborhood staple with his wife, Daniela Trice. “It’s great the way it is. You don’t change something when it’s great.”

Specifically, allow me to reference a specific passage:

After it sat empty for more than a year, Jefferson County Property Valuation Administration records show the Trices bought the nearly 2,000-square-foot, 1929 stone cottage in October for $490,000.

I was only guesstimating the half-million dollar price, and it’s nice to be right for a change. We’ll keep you informed as The Cottage Inn’s prospective comeback draws near.
