Walkable

This category contains a lot of different recommendations, but all within a 10 minute walk of our downtown shotgun bungalow property. There are many more places, but these are our favorites (we live downtown close by the property you'll be staying at) places we frequent.
Breakfast/Brunch - You can see this breakfast/brunch spot from the front door of our Shotgun property. Using mainly KY Proud ingredients and usually hosting students from a local culinary school, the menu and tastes never fail to delight.

Casual Dining - Just a 2 minute walk from our shotgun bungalow property on the corner of Short and Broadway. Their chicken and waffles have been featured on the food network, but lunch and dinner will not disappoint at this casual dining experience either.

Martini bar & Casual Dining - A 3/4 minute walk, this martini bar is located in the Hilton. While being under the Hilton umbrella, their food is surprisingly good, at a decent price point, but their location with a streetside patio, or large glass windows (if seated inside) facing Broadway is the main draw. Service can be hit or miss though as they always seem to be understaffed.

New York Style Pizza - take out only, open late. Just a 4/5 minute walk from our shotgun bungalow property. If you like New York style slices, this is your place. The lines can get long at night, but it is open late. This location is walkable, but they have a large bar/lounge space on Manchester St as well.

Upscale steakhouse with reasonable prices, only a 3/4 minute walk from our shotgun bungalow property. It might be hard to get a table on short notice, but is worth the work to get one. You'll be very happy with the service and the food. I've heard several comments that Tony's could have better steak finishes than Ruth's Chris.

Casual to Upscale dining - a well regarded local chefs concept of Mexican, this place has never disappointed us, but the wait for a table also usually reflects that as it's a small space.

Pub & Pub Food - this is a hole in the wall bar, but their food is amazing. The menu is always different but intriguing and is prepared right behind the bar as you watch.

Brewery & Casual Dining - This began as a collaboration between a brewery in Paris, KY and a food truck called the Gastrognomes in Lexington. There's no table service, you order food at a kiosk and it's dropped at your table, but you won't be disappointed with their regularly rotating menu of chef driven creations.

Casual Pizza Dining - started as a chain in WV, their Pizza never disappoints, and their dry rub wings are amazing (seriously, don't eat here and not try them) and the salads are great too. Our friends have said that their Gluten Free pizza is the best they've ever had. Well over 100 varieties of beer and cider to choose from, but no wine or cocktails are available.
