Slice Through the Heat of Summer

Let’s face it, Lexington and Cincinnati–we know the drill. There is no way around the dog days of summer, but to go through it. Our fair cities have enough heat and humidity to make even the most stalwart resident whimper. We invite you in to the comfort or our restaurants and suggest you perhaps venture out of your typical menu choices. Try something new, light and refreshing; some of our “beat the heat” items include:

– Our raw bar, filled with icy-cold mammoth shrimp, crab legs and featured oysters
– Steak Tartare–try a steakhouse classic with Tony’s contemporary flair
– Tuna Tartare–light and fresh; a perfect start to a meal
– Mixed Greens Salad–a great mix of sweet, salty, creamy and crunchy

Accompanying your choice with an ice-cold beer or a favorite seasonal cocktail can make life a little more pleasant–and take your mind off of the sidewalk melting outside.

Cincinnati Spotlight


Western Southern Open

August 15-23

Now in our 4th year, we are delighted to serve food at the WSO and proud to be the top-selling restaurant at this prestigious event. In addition to our old favorites, making their debut this year are our shrimp nachos. These nachos are loaded with shrimp, avocado, pico de gallo, tomatillos, cilantro and a lime vinaigrette. We serve these with a generous helping of white corn tortilla chips.

Lexington Spotlight


Summer Cocktails, Lexington-Style

Beverage Director Kelly Richardson and his staff have been busy creating five new refreshing cocktails to take your mind off the heat. One of our favorites–The Bittersweet Donerail, made with a playful mix of Campari, Bombay Gin, ruby red port wine and Bitter Truth Golden Falernum. Sunlight sparkling off your drink included at no extra charge.
