Actor Norman Reedus, best known for his role as Daryl Dixon on AMC’s TV show “The Walking Dead,” is bringing his Southern-inspired restaurant concept to Derby City this June.
Nic & Norman’s will be located on Whiskey Alley (the block behind Whiskey Row) at 108 W. Washington St. It’s co-owned by “The Walking Dead” producer and special effect makeup artist Greg Nicotero, which is how the restaurant got its name.
Another partner in the project is Kentucky author Robert Kirkman, who wrote the graphic novels the TV series is based on.
While the connections to the show seem endless, Nic & Norman’s is not themed around it nor does it have anything to do with zombies. Its menu features American fare like gourmet burgers, meatloaf, flatbreads, and brisket mac and cheese + will be open for brunch, lunch, and dinner.
It will be the fourth location for the concept, which has three other spots in Senoia, GA, Chattanooga, TN, and Lexington, KY.
