Most neighborhoods have small shopping centers with grocery, dining, and a little shopping. Chinoe Center is no different but has a wider variety of food options than most.
Shakespeare and Co. is the sister restaurant to the first in downtown. I’ve tried that one but haven’t made it to this new space yet. The outdoor seating looks wonderful. I’ll be there as soon as it’s under 80 degrees. Fun fact, Shakespeare and Co. only other locations are in the Middle East. Go KY!
Wild Thyme provides a specialty food experience through cooking classes and meals made for you to pick up. They have some pretty neat, if not expensive, offerings.
If you need to get your nails done or to pick up a fun gift for a birthday, you have options here. Jin Jin is one of those ubiquitous cheap Chinese food places that isn’t any better (or worse) than the rest.
Kroger’s is currently expanding and is adding a wine store. Hopefully they will not be too much competition for the independent Mason Liquors but with the drive-through at Mason’s, they already have the upper hand.
To round it out, there is a small bar and grill that is popular with the local crowd. If you’re not in the mood for greasy there’s always the “fresh” Subway next door.
