The new Decade Restaurant, which opened June 6 in Louisville, Ky., is not so much a new concept as a reincarnation of the restaurant Decca, which closed in 2022. Chad Sheffield, who was one of Decca’s owners, has partnered with former Decca chefs Matt Johnson (Bar Vetti, Proof on Main) and Andy Myers (Gralehaus, The Holy Grale).

The opening menu included dishes like mushrooms in black garlic sauce with nuts and tendrils; Porchetta with charred fennel, honey and watercress; and jalapeno bucatini with rock shrimp, celery-and-herb salad and squid ink breadcrumbs.
