Our Story

At Coles, we’re dedicated to bringing the art of dining to every experience.

Think local meats cured in-house. Crisp vegetables fresh off the vine, pickled onsite. Breads baked fresh each day. The best seasonal ingredients available, sourced from local farms and trusted purveyors. And our menus go beyond the plate, with handcrafted cocktails featuring unique, house-made ingredients, hundreds of bourbons available for tasting, and an award-winning carefully curated wine program.

We believe in honoring history and chose to set our restaurant in a restored historic landmark in downtown Lexington.

Most of all, we believe that southern charm and hospitality means treating our guests like family.
