Stratto's now open in Clarksville, with Bob's Old 15-B on tap.

It's not in New Albany, and this newest Clarksville eatery is not a mega-chain concept at the Veterans Parkway exurb.

Sam Anderson knows all about competition in the restaurant business. He also knows a winner when he sees one.

So when Anderson and four other local investors decided to put an upscale Italian restaurant in the historic John McCulloch House in Clarksville, he knew he had something special.

“There is no place like it in Southern Indiana,” he said. “Where else can you dine under a 100-year-old tree?”

Many readers know Sam Anderson from his Sam's Food & Spirits, a fixture for two decades at the corner of Blackiston Mill Road and Charlestown Road, and a place where I used to sign over paychecks on a regular basis.

A few weeks back, Sam appeared at work to inquire about the possibility of having an NABC on tap at Stratto's, and as it stands now, Bob's Old 15-B Porter is the choice. It's the only other place other than the Bistro New Albany where NABC beers are being sold.

Porter and pasta? We'll see.
