Located at the world’s most famous racetrack and named for the fastest two minutes in sports, this Derby Museum restaurant serves up traditional Kentucky fare with a lighter spin. Try the Kentucky Hot Brown.
This wildly (excuse the pun) popular breakfast and lunch spot is an ode to the egg. The dining room features egg art and even egg-shaped salt and pepper shakers. The creatively titled offerings include “Violet You’re Turning Violet” blueberry pancakes and “Crispy Hippie Crunch” granola waffles.
The Brown Hotel’s more casual restaurant provides a chance to eat the Hot Brown at its natal site — along with other sandwiches, salads and entrées. Features a lunch buffet on weekdays and a contemporary a la carte menu. Breakfast buffet on weekends.
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).
