The Summit at Fritz Farm – The Barn has been open for a short period of time now and we just wanted to share with you what all The Barn has to offer!

At The Summit at Fritz Farm

The Barn is Kentucky’s first and finest artisan food hall—bringing the best of Lexington’s culinary scene to the heart of The Summit at Fritz Farm. An all-local, all-independent lineup of restauranteurs are making a new food destination for the city, with craft ice cream, pasture-raised fried chicken, Greek street food, Japanese ramen, and more. The Barn is where locals can hang, and out-of-towners can experience authentic Lexington. 

You will find the following at The Barn!

Athenian Grill is an authentic Greek experience from appetizer to dessert. Partnering with local farms and businesses, founder Ilias Pappas brings fresh, fast Greek feasts in generous portions. Whether it’s an authentic gyro or tzatziki dip with warm pita, you’re sure to be satisfied.

Say hello to ATOMIC RAMEN, Lexington’s first super-powered noodle shop featuring big bowls of Japanese-style ramen and Asian small bites. Not just ramen, but SUPERPOWERED ramen. Fueled by MasterChef star Dan Wu and his unique take on Asian-inspired cuisine. Dan Wu infuses his nerdy love for comics and superheroes into his first concept at The Barn.
