Louisville’s new French-style bistro is offering a New Year’s Eve dinner.

La Coop: Bistro à Vins bills its approach as “French comfort food with a Southern twist,.” and sure enough, the New Year’s Eve includes variations on Southern delicacies including black-eyed peas and greens mated up with Champagne and Crème Brûlée.

Two words to the wise: Limited seating. This has to be he smallest great restaurant in Louisville, so we wouldn’t dilly-dally.
