After learning that the annual Lexington Restaurant Week won’t officially happen this year, local restaurants have decided to go ahead with a special dining week anyway. As a group we have pulled together “Lexington Eats Week,” and will feature set-price menus for one or two guests that give diners a chance to dine at places they might not visit on a regular basis. $1 of each $26 meal will go to the restaurant's choice of local charity. Please contact individual restaurants with questions.
