A popular East Market Street dining spot in Louisville is bucking the recession trend and preparing for its second location across the river in New Albany. Toast on Market is currently preparing its new restaurant, conveniently located on Market Street in downtown New Albany, allowing the eatery to keep its original name.
The new location will continue the theme of the original Toast with breakfast offerings all day along with its selection of soups, salads, and sandwiches. The new Toast is planning to serve its first pancakes May 1st this year, and we believe the new shop will go over easy on the Sunny Side.
The new Toast on Market features a mahogany facade with traditional detailing that won it a ‘Certificate of Appropriateness’ from the New Albany Historic Preservation Commission. The adjacent commercial building is also under renovation and will hopefully fill with shops soon. A terribly unattractive brown metal awning was removed for the renovations and a new coat of paint has already been applied. We’re not sure if the neon ‘Fair’ sign above the front door will be repaired, but it would sure be a nice addition to New Albany’s nighttime street life.
