At Ramsi’s Café on the World, the Kamar family may fill its menu with dishes from around the globe, but many of its ingredients come from their own farm. The USDA-certified organic farm yields eggs, chicken, and produce, lovingly spoken into existence by the Jolly Green Giant to populate the restaurant’s dishes. Moroccan lamb chops with pumpkin-mint sauce, korean bulgogi, egyptian kusheri with lentils, and harissa are all equally at home on the diverse menu, nearly half of which is composed of vegetarian and vegan recipes. To complement meals, a selection of more than 70 bourbons populates the bar—making Ramsi’s a member of the city's Urban Bourbon Trail. Staffers also pour beer and wine or shake craft cocktails such as the Kentucky Shaman, a mix of ginger, honey, bourbon, and peppermint. As patrons dine and sip among ornate sculptures from Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, pianist Pete Peterson cultivates a laid-back atmosphere with tinkling jazz numbers.
