Toogie’s Table hopes to honor tradition and encourage tourism

The same company planning to convert the former Hardin County Courthouse into a boutique hotel is reopening a destination restaurant in Bardstown this week.

Toogie’s Table will open to the public Thursday, giving Bardstown residents and tourists a new take on the historic foundation of the Kurtz Restaurant.

The Kurtz Restaurant and neighboring Parkview Motel, formerly owned and operated by Marilyn “Toogie” Dick and her family, operated across from My Old Kentucky Home State Park for 84 years before closing their doors officially last December.

The restaurant and motel were purchased by Louisville’s Weyland Ventures, which has revitalized the operations and is reopening them as Toogie’s Table and the Bardstown Motor Lodge.
