day trip from Louisville to visit Kentucky Horse Farm..

Hi, I'm driving out from Louisville on a day trip in May to spend the day at the Kentucky Horse Farm. Love horses... If there is a "not to miss" restaurant for dinner in Lexington, what would it be?

THANKS!

If you are not from the area or someplace in the south and would like to experience regional/southern fine dining, Jonathan at Gratz Park Inn is a must. The chef himself grew up in Lexington on one of the most prosperous horse farms in the world. His food focuses on using southern/regional ingredients and local products and elevating them to fine dining cuisine. The whole focus of his restaurant is to bring the experience of 'supper' as he enjoyed it in his childhood on the horse farm.

I also just tried a new restaurant here in town called Sabio and was very impressed. I would recommend it as well.

There are SO MANY new restaurants in addition to the Lexingtonian staples! One that opened about a year and a hafl ago, Windy Corner, is about a 15 minute drive from the park through horse country. The owner of this restaurant also owns Holly Hill Inn and Wallace Station (both well-respected restaurants) and is a James Beard Chef. Windy Corner has burgers, barbeque, sandwiches and tries to use local products as much as possible.

Jonathan at Gratz Park (Bluegrass fare) and Le Deauville (French) are fantastic restaurants downtown. Also check out Dudley's on Short and Ramsey's for Bluegrass fare.
