I was recently invited to spend an afternoon at The Barn in Lexington, KY. What is The Barn? To quote their website, “The Barn is Kentucky’s first and finest artisan food hall—bringing the best of Lexington’s culinary scene to the heart of The Summit at Fritz Farm. An all-local, all-independent lineup of restaurateurs comprise a new food destination for the city, with craft ice cream, pasture-raised fried chicken, Greek street food, Japanese ramen, and more. The Barn is where locals can hang and out-of-towners can experience authentic Lexington.”
Conveniently located at the Summit at Fritz Farm, the Barn is a one-stop shop (or chow!) for your Kentucky palate. While you’re there, be sure to stop and shop at the Kentucky for Kentucky store, too – it’ll be a good break while you contemplate your next food move of the day!
Now, to what I tried – the best part!
Traditional Fish ‘N Chips Platter (love, love, love the West Sixth beer batter!)
Gyro (with amazing tzatziki)
To be honest, I’m still drooling over this combo plate.
La Petite Crêperie:
Breakfast crêpe, topped with an egg.
Pasture by Marksbury Farm:
Chorizo burger + fried pickles.
Beer cheese fries + pulled chicken.
Crank and Boom Craft Ice Cream:
S’mores Sundae – need I say more?
Both cocktails were amazing! My favorite was the Bear Necessities (pictured above). I love that there is a beautiful cocktail bar in The Barn — there’s something to pair with each of the other eateries. Iconic.
The next time you are in Lexington, this is a must-stop! A new concept to Kentucky, I truly feel that it was a needed addition. It’s perfect for group gatherings because there is a dish (or a restaurant) for everyone. Genius, if you ask me.
As always, Happy Eating, Happy Traveling, Happy Living!
Y’all come back now, ya hear?
