Food Scene
Contemporary American food in a hipster-chic setting. Located on Jefferson Street among other interesting restaurants. Within walking distance of West Sixth Brewery which is also worth a visit.

Do not leave Lexington without visiting a Ouita Michels restaurant! Windy Corner is a bit of a drive through horse farms but so worth it when you land in a beautiful setting with plenty of down-home food and live bluegrass music on Friday nights. Also in the Ouita Michels family of restaurants: Holly Hill Inn, Wallace Station, Smithtown Seafood, Wallace Station, and Honeywood.

Creative from-scratch bakery, breakfast and lunch menu. The owner is wonderful and the restaurant is a hub for second-chance employment that is making a huge impact on Lexington.
