Windy Corner Market - A Hidden Gem

Choosing the next restaurant for Foodie Friday is always quite the task, with a bounty of scrumptious options in Lexington to choose from. But when broker, Judy Craft (Judge Judy as we call her) suggested Windy Corner Market, the jury wasn’t out for long until a verdict was made: Windy Corner it is!

Surrounded by the scenery of horse country, the Windy Corner Market perfectly captures the essence of Lexington. Windy Corner collaborates with local farmers and businesses to bring in fresh ingredients to create delicious dishes from breakfast to dessert, and to honor and celebrate the local tastes of Kentucky.

Being smack-dab in the middle of horse country meant a scenic trip down Bryan Station Road to get to the Windy Corner. Worries about potential rain dogged our drive for a short time, but it’s easy to forget things like that when you have someone with a personality as vibrant as our guest for this Foodie Friday, Kimberly Leslie! Windy Corner Market definitely...

Bearnaise on French Fries? Yes, Please!

Carson's

The last time I had an ample helping of béarnaise sauce was on a piece of red meat. I’ve always been a huge fan of the delicious, buttery sauce, so when I saw the Béarnaise Truffle Fries on Carson’s Food and Drink menu, it took only seconds for me to decide on the location of our next Foodie Friday lunch. We chose Anne Hart Cornett to be our special guest because she’s so much fun, and like us, appreciates a good meal. We were happy to discover that her husband, Eric, is practically a gourmet chef, so her vast knowledge of good food would serve us well.

Corto Lima - Best Chips & Guac Ever

Corto Lima

It was a Friday morning—Cinco de Mayo to be exact—and we were on the hunt for the perfect lunch spot. While flipping through the latest Tops in Lex magazine, we came across the “New in Town” article featuring 5 local restaurants. Corto Lima was the first to catch our eye showing a picture of what can only be described as pure bliss in a taco shell. Even though it’s a Latin inspired eatery, we thought… “we can make this work.”

With great enthusiasm, we snagged Realtor Jennifer Sisson, and headed downtown to Short...
