Lexington Restaurants to Serve Up Tasty Dishes on Special Menus for Dine Lexington! Restaurant Week

[LEXINGTON, Ky.] – Lexingtonians and visitors alike can enjoy delectable dishes and deals Oct. 25 - Nov. 3 when locally owned and operated restaurants will offer $25 fixed price menus for the first Dine Lexington! Restaurant Week, part of the Kentucky Gathering. Dine Lexington! is an opportunity for Lexington’s growing and thriving restaurant scene to position itself front and center while visitors pour into the city for the events of the Kentucky Gathering Oct. 29 - Nov. 3. The Kentucky Gathering is the first-ever celebration of its kind of all things Bluegrass – Kentucky crafted brews, bourbon and food; family-friendly activities; and the beauty and grace of horses during the Alltech National Horse Show.

“The outstanding cuisine from local Lexington restaurants deserves to be showcased before a national audience,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, founder and president of Alltech. “The Kentucky Gathering is an ideal time for visitors to experience what this city is about and for locals to celebrate their rich Kentucky heritage and explore restaurants in their own backyards that they may have never even visited.”

Lexingtonians and visitors alike can enjoy delectable dishes and deals Oct. 25 - Nov. 3 when locally owned and operated restaurants will offer $25 fixed price menus for the first Dine Lexington! Restaurant Week, part of Alltech’s first-ever Kentucky Gathering – a celebration of horses, heritage and hops.

During Dine Lexington! Restaurant Week, restaurant patrons can experience more than 30 locally-owned and operated restaurants throughout the city. While some participating restaurants are featuring $25 multi-course menus, others are offering “Two for $25” menus — providing options for every budget and preference.  From upscale contemporary American dinners to Spanish-style tapas to down-home BBQ, the wide array of choices means options for every occasion – intimate date nights, an entertaining evening for out-of-town visitors, as well as affordable dining for the whole family. Patrons can enjoy delicious savory dishes such as Lyons Farm® Beef Brisket from AZUR Restaurant & Patio, Bone-In Tuscan Pork Chops from Sutton’s, or the spicy sweetness of Bread Pudding with Town Branch® Bourbon and Salted Caramel from Palmers. Along with specialty meals at an affordable price, restaurant week patrons can also receive half-price admission to the Alltech National Horse Show Oct. 29 - Nov.3 with a receipt from a participating restaurant.

Participating restaurants will display Dine Lexington! posters and table tents noting the special $25 restaurant week option, and patrons need only to ask for the Dine Lexington! menu to enjoy it.
