After a fun and relaxing day at Keeneland, we ventured to this Italian restaurant Kara found on the Internet as one of the top three restaurants in Lexington. We arrived on time for our 6:30 reservations and the place was packed.

We were seated right away and enjoyed bottles of a Chianti that Beth and Kara ordered. Luckily they shared with me and Stan, the appetizer orderer, had a scallop special coming as well as the fried artichoke hearts with a horseradish sauce and lots of crusty, hot french bread was on the table with plenty of butter.

For dinner, I stuck with the generic Spaghetti with Marinara and nearly ate the whole thing! Believe it or not, I didn't do a great job of keeping up with what everyone else ordered here but we all loved it and they were plentiful with water and offering fresh grated Parmesan cheese. We skipped dessert and headed back to Berea so we could hit the road early in the morning.

If you are ever in Lexington, make sure Giuseppe's is on your radar, it will not disappoint!

I added a picture from Keeneland and one of Kara, Beth and I at the track. It was a beautiful day at the races. We all commented that Keeneland takes it up a notch compared to our track Oaklawn in Hot Springs. It was neat to see so many people totally dressed up for a day at the track. We hope to make it an annual trip, minus the distilleries!
