In two weeks Josh Poling and his fiance’ Chelsey are giving as Josh says, “Bowling Green the type of restaurant it deserves.” They soon will be serving fresh baked bread, pastries, house cured meats, scratch pizzas, fresh pasta. They’ll do it all and do it with a commitment to local purveyors and the Bowling Green community, which we at BLBG love.

Here is the Menu as it stands now:

Of course, at Buy Local Bowling Green we love the story of small and local business owners. Here is their story as they say it on facebook:

In December 2007 I reached a decision point in my life. I was on the fast track to unemployment, graduating in five months with a political science degree and no desire to go to law school or continue my studies. Reverting back to the classic question of our youth, “If you had one million dollars what would you do for the rest of your life?”, I knew my answer: open a restaurant. Now, here we are a little over three years later, and it is with unbelievable excitement that I announce Home: Cafe and Marketplace opening summer 2011 in Bowling Green, KY.

After graduating from Miami University in Oxford, OH, I headed south to Lexington, KY to attend Sullivan University and study Culinary Arts. While attending school I worked full time under a very talented chef name Jeff Mayer at Saul Good Restaurant & Pub. While many aspiring chefs sweat it out in fast food joints of chain restaurants with uninspired menus, I was fortunate my first kitchen job was under a chef with a passion for food and for teaching.

My journey through culinary school could not be told without without mentioning one Chelsey King. In school I met a girl fresh out of high school with an unbelievable amount of talent, a love of food, and a stubbornness to match mine. If you want to know Chelsey King you better do so by October 15, because on that day she becomes my sous chef in life and Chelsey Poling.

After stints at Heirloom in Midway, KY (easily one of the best restaurants in the state if you haven’t been there) and Giacamo’s Deli in downtown Lexington, I was given the opportunity to return home as the executive chef of 440 Main and Micki’s on Main in downtown Bowling Green. For nearly a year now, I have had the privilege of working with a great group of people while sending out some truly spectacular food. Around December though, I was presented with another fantastic opportunity, and in life, if you are presented with an opportunity, you are crazy not to take it.

So, that’s how we in Bowling Green are being presented with this fantastic idea. If you are interested in keeping updated with what they have planned ahead fan them on facebook, or keep tuned in here!
