Unlike cinematic love scenes, cuisine can be enjoyed in the company of parents without embarrassment. Dodge future moments of uneasiness with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of creative regional cuisine and drinks at Triangle Grille, located inside the Hilton Lexington/Downtown.
Executive chef Joshua Winslow taps farm-fresh ingredients and nearly two decades of culinary experience to craft a menu of traditional and newfangled takes on Southern favorites. At the twang of the dinner banjo, cornbread croutons bob in bowls of rich Bluegrass Country ham and heirloom bean soup, inviting hearty appetites to pull up a cozy green chair and drop fang-anchor in eats ($5). Sustainable seafood selections such as the Bigg Blue mussels starter, steamed in Lexington-brewed Kentucky Ale, swim toward tables through a casually upscale dining room, past murals of majestic horses speeding through greenery to get to the salon before the perm counter closes ($8). Hailing from more solid ground, the 10-ounce char-grilled pork chop cozies up to whipped sweet potatoes and bourbon-apple chutney ($20), while sandwiches such as the smoked beef brisket allow for a more multisensory dining experience ($10). Triangle Grille's main room seats up to 180, but the restaurant also offers a more intimate dining experience with its private room, which seats 30 to 50.
