Old World Cuisine.
21st Century Techniques.

We use both classic and modern cooking techniques to prepare the finest ingredients Kentucky and North American farmers have to offer and cook with a fine dining mentality but in a quite casual atmosphere provided by Blue Stallion Brewery. By sourcing directly from local farmers and doing our own butchery and food preparations and using a zero-waste mentality, we are able to provide, what we feel, is exquisite and nutritious meals at a reasonable price.

We love cooking Old World cuisine with 21st Century techniques and science. We take familiar favorites and put our bold stamp on them. We have an incredibly small kitchen and really try and view that not as a negative, but as an advantage by keeping everything as fresh as possible. We do our homework and source the highest quality ingredients so that we can treat them simply and respectfully. We play by the rules when it comes to food and staff safety, but when the stove gets hot and the grease begins to sizzle, all bets are off.

Salt & Vinegar is uniquely delicious! You don't see this high quality of food in breweries. It really pairs well with Blue Stallion beer. True Gem!

Will T.

I can’t speak more highly of Salt & Vinegar, and would recommend it above even the most expensive options in Lexington. The quality and ingenuity of the food is amazing. Try the PB&J and you’ll understand! Awesome little spot and I only wish the best for the chef running this place. Can’t wait to go back!

Chelsea T.

Absolutely incredible food. Hands down some of the best in Lexington. This is a hidden gem that everyone should try.

Steve W.

The food is amazing. I had the S&V take on the classic Reuben and loved it. The menu here is where creativity meets execution, you won't be disappointed.

Brandon F.

Every dish I've had has been phenomenal. Exceptionally well executed and exceedingly flavorful.

Highly recommend Salt & Vinegar for a high-quality meal that never disappoints! The food is always fresh and unique with new seasonal menus that are always delicious. The soups are to die for, as well as the German-inspired meals. If you're hanging out at Blue Stallion the beer pairs so well with one of the cheese or meat boards!
