About Whiskey Dry
Chef Edward Lee and Stacie Stewart bring you their vision of a whiskey and burger bar. Stylish, fun and approachable, Whiskey Dry is devoted to bringing together the love of all things whiskey, from the artwork to the cuisine to the cutting edge selections that range from the best Japanese Whiskeys to traditional Scotch and the vast world of Bourbons. What better way to enjoy a hand-crafted burger than to pair it with an artisan bourbon or original cocktail in a room devoted to the history and lore of all things whiskey right in the heart of Louisville, Kentucky.
Chef Edward Lee is also the chef/owner of 610 Magnolia & MilkWood in Louisville and the culinary director for Succotash in DC. He has received multiple finalist nominations for the James Beard Foundation Awards Best Chef: Southeast. He was nominated for a daytime Emmy for his role as host of the Emmy-winning series, Mind of Chef on PBS. He is the author of Smoke & Pickles and Buttermilk Graffiti from Artisan Books.
Chef Lee is also mentor and creative director for programming and guidance for The LEE Initiative. His nonprofit’s acronym stands for Let’s Empower Employment. It aims to create small, but impactful, programs that make a real difference in the lives of the next generation of industry professionals.
