Lexington being in the heart of horse country has the wonderful position to offer great Mexican food a thousand miles from the border. We have a plethora of Mexican restaurants here but my favorite is Jalapeño’s.
I hate going out to Fayette Mall. Nicholasville Road traffic is the absolute worst. But when you have the imbibing of English and Scottish beer on tap and indulging in some Kentuckized-English food as your goal, there is no better place to go. Continue reading “The Pub”
This place is everything I love: they have a wide range of seafood items and preparation methods, the staff are fellow gastronomes who’s conversations make me happy every time we talk, and they don’t mind substitutions. Continue reading “Smithtown Seafood”

Sundays are great days. It’s a day that is spent relaxing, getting a few things done, probably cooking out in the backyard. Sundays are best started with a donut. And donuts can be had at Donut Days on Euclid. Continue reading “Donut Days on Euclid”
Indi’s Restaurant is located on North Broadway at 7th Street. The first challenge of being able to enjoy Indi’s is getting into the parking lot. You can park in front of the building or in the back and go inside or wait in the drive-thru. No matter which, plan on waiting at least 10 minutes. Fried food takes time to fry and they move a lot of food. That means there is a wait pretty much all day and night. Continue reading “Indi’s at the Corner of Yummy and Spicy”
To celebrate our anniversary we enlisted the aid of babysitters (thanks mom & dad!) and left the house early. After a little bar hopping, we ended up at Sal’s for a romantic dinner with me in a jocular mood. We chose Sal’s because we had a giftcard for a BHG restaurant as a anniversary gift (again, thanks mom & dad!!). Continue reading “Sal’s Chophouse in Lansdowne”
Athenian Grill is a feel-good story of great food getting the support of those who love it and making it in this tough restaurant town. Athenian Grill started as a pop-up food truck which I enjoyed outside of West Sixth Brewery. Deciding to take the leap into a brick-and-mortar building, the owners launched a Kickstarter campaign that quickly gained steam. They achieved their goal and opened the business to a crowd of people that continues to demand more Greek food. Continue reading “Athenian Grill”
