This bistro, located in an historic former stop on the L&N railroad, has an exposed-brick interior and fireplaces that lend a cozy feeling. The seasonally-changing menu offers dishes to pair perfectly with the extensive wine selection, which can be ordered by the taste, glass, or bottle.
The perennially popular eatery offers outdoor seating and a brunch menu served all day Saturday and Sunday. The tomato-dill soup is a house specialty, and salads and sandwiches include names like The Naturalistic and The Louis XIV (chicken salad with apple slices and lettuce).
This brewpub, located in the heart of St. Matthews, is the latest in this expanding, Lexington-based group. Lunch and dinner is classic bar food — like hot wings, shrimp poppers, burgers and ribs. The beer list includes the big American brands plus 24 microbrews. We hear it’s a happening late-night spot, too.
