Athenian Grill was founded by Ilias Pappas, a Greek native and hospitality management major at the University of Kentucky. Ilias grew up in a small town near Athens watching his mom cook lamb on the open fire and his grandmother bake homemade pita bread in the family’s clay oven.

Today, Ilias’s vision of partnering with local farms and businesses to bring fresh, authentic Greek food to Lexington is supported by a dedicated, hardworking and growing team. Together they serve up quality food that hungry Lexingtonians can truly enjoy and feel good about!

Bourbon n’ Toulouse
829 E. Euclid Ave.
(859) 335-0300

In July 2004 Will Pieratt and Kevin Heathcoat took a huge leap of faith and opened Bourbon n’ Toulouse by maxing out seven credit cards and simply hoping things worked out for the best. The business plan was simple: cook some damn good food, give back to the community that help keep their lights on and have as much fun as the law allows! Ten years later these guys are still extremely passionate about what they do and they haven’t grown up a bit, just ask their wives! Always cooking and laughing, these guys are serious about having fun. Stop in and sample the wide array of tasty Cajun and Creole dishes, grab a beer from the ever changing selection and drift away to their own little version of The French Quarter.

Not bad for a washed up musician and a retired elementary teacher!

Kentucky natives, Ren and Gwyn Everly, had dreamed of starting their own BBQ catering business for over 20 years. So, J. Render's BBQ comes from the Everlys' love of BBQ and southern comfort food. J. Render's BBQ is Southern BBQ. The Everlys have taken their favorite parts of Memphis Style, Carolina Style, and Texas Style BBQ and made their own unique Southern Style BBQ. ​

J. Render, known as Ren to his friends, has been perfecting his smoking and grilling techniques for over 20 years. With 17 years of experience in the restaurant industry, J. Render knows how to provide a good product, how to get it out quick and how to price it right. And, while J. Render worked at perfecting his signature pork, brisket, ribs and chicken, Gwyn worked to develop the perfect sides to accompany the meat. ​

So, at J. Render's, they not only strive to have the best smoked meats you have ever tasted, but to also have the very best sides and specialties.
