July Newsletter

Neither New or Improved

Does “New and Improved” always signify “better”? Some things are constantly evolving and changing in our lives–our fashion, cars, and of course, our phones. At Tony’s we love innovation–in our seasonal cocktails, our wine dinners, our specials. However, we firmly believe some things shouldn’t change–like white tablecloths, manners, the perfect steak dust. We greet you properly, hold out your chair, serve on the left and re-fold your napkin should you leave your table. Our tiramisu and cannolis are generations-old recipes; our steak dust is sublime just the way it is. Do you want to know what happened to chivalry? Come to Tony’s to rediscover it. We make old school new.


Happy July 4th!


Our Founding Fathers sacrificed their livelihood, their land and in some cases, their lives for liberty. That is the definition of courage and character. Be proud of our collective heritage. Our restaurants will be closed on the 4th so we can be patriotic with our friends and family. Please note our Cincinnati restaurant will also be closed on July 5th.

Wow. It’s Freezing.


Ok. We lied. It’s hot, humid and sticky. But it will be frigid sooner than you think. Don’t be left out in the cold without holiday dining arrangements for your family or business. Believe it or not, private dining spaces book up very quickly during the holiday months. Now is the time to think about reserving a room for your event.

Cincinnati Spotlight


New Summer Cocktails

We are quite the mixologists these days, making our own fruit-infused liquors, simple syrups and bitters. Here’s a taste of what we have to offer on our new cocktail list:

Tequila MockingMe – made with vanilla-infused blanco tequila, pineapple shrub, spiced triple sec and house-made tiki bitters.

Barrel-Aged Boulevardier – We barrel-age Jefferson’s Reserve in-house and mix it with Aperol and Doulin Rouge.

Join us in the bar, dining room or the patio to enjoy our version of summer.

Salads at Tonys

Summer Salads

The bounty of summer is so fleeting; our Lexington location is harnessing the freshest local ingredients in an ever-changing array of salads. This month, look for innovative salads and dressings that feature the best of July–heirloom tomatoes. Come in often and enjoy a “spontaneous” salad that will be here today, gone tomorrow.

Best restaurant in Lex right now! And I don’t even eat steak…

Since moving to Lexington from Columbus, Ohio, we’ve been a little disappointed in the high-end dining experience. Until tonight. Phenomenal meal, wait staff, decor, experience. We will be back. Often.
