Louisville’s first acai… ak-ai-ee? … a-sea-ee?… a-kaka-ee? bar just opened in the heart of NuLu on East Market Street and no matter how you pronounce it (it’s Ah-sah-ee by the way), the fresh fruit bowls and smoothies will leave your mouth with a wonderful taste. LueBerry held is soft opening on Monday March 26th and owner Lue Ahmed, 27, has been surprised by the turnout from the area “We received a great welcome from other business owners and the foot traffic has been amazing.” Hoping to join the NuLu renaissance Ahmed embraced the area after originally setting his sights on the infamously trendy Bardstown Road neighborhood, “The area is growing so fast and the sense of community between business owners has been great.” However, for Ahmed LueBerry represents more than just a fresh fruit bar in a popular neighborhood, it is the culmination of years of hard work and pursuing his dream to leave the corporate lifestyle. His passion shows through his simple and unique menu.
Carefully curated and using only simple, natural ingredients the menu of LueBerry employes a quality over quickness philosophy. Using only a handful of ingredients LueBerry is able to offer a surprising variety of items from smoothies, to fruit bowls to supertoast. Some menu items include the assorted smoothie Blue Majik (almond milk, blue green algae, banana, pineapple, peach, maca, flax, cucumber, cilantro and coconut) and the East Market Acai Bowl (almond milk, acai, banana, strawberry, plum, granola, goji berries, shredded coconut and chia seeds) that draws its inspiration from the eclectic main thoroughfare of NuLu. LueBerry has scheduled its Grand Opening Party at 10AM on Saturday March 31st, alongside the 3rd Annual NuLu Bock Fest.
