Lexington, KY – Finally, a food tour is back in Downtown Lexington, Kentucky! Rich in culinary pioneers in the farm-to-table movement and award-winning southern hospitality, Lexington’s food scene is incredibly special and should be shared with all! Bites of the Bluegrassis thrilled to be connecting foodies to the dynamic food scene and rich history of the city.
On the Downtown Tour, customers will take a southern stroll through the architectural and mural-lined streets to five award-winning eateries: Zim’s Cafe, Agave & Rye, The Southern Deli & Tavern, Salt & Vinegar at Ethereal Pubhouse, and The Grove. While each stop has its own unique flavor, the compilation all share the collaborative mindset and dedication to Kentucky farms that make the city’s food scene unlike any other. Customers will enjoy unique foodie items like the buzz button and bacon macaroni beignets, to Kentucky favorites like beer cheese and freshly baked breads from family-owned shops. In the end, customers will have walked just under a mile, heard lots of interesting stories, and made some new friends.
The Downtown tour is currently being offered on Fridays from 1:30-4:30, with an additional day to be added in the near future. Bites of the bluegrass looks forward to offering even more tours later this summer, like the East End Tour and some evening drink tour options.
Tickets for the Downtown tour can be purchased at the company’s website bitesofthebluegrass.com for just $75 per ticket. Vegetarian diets can be accommodated. Tours run rain or shine, so customers should check the local weather and plan appropriately.
Bites of the Bluegrass is founded by Erin Goins, who loves Lexington, its history, and its food culture. She and her family have loved using food tours to learn about new cities and search out the best restaurants as they’ve travelled over the years.
