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.
The first Korean restaurant in town, Lee’s is still much loved. Signature dishes include the stone bee bim bob — rice, vegetables, beef and egg served in traditional Korean hot sauce in a hot stone bowl.
You’re treated like family at this Italian eatery owned by sisters Caitlind and Sarah DiFabio. The menu includes Italian pasta favorites (the marinara sauce is a family recipe) as well as an interpretation of the Hot Brown made with prosciutto, pasta and basil.
