There’s something about eating outdoors that turns a summer dinner into an event, and Lexington loves to eat and drink outside.
“Lexington loves a patio. It’s a patio town,” says Seth Brewer, owner of Enoteca on Jefferson and Second streets. Last year, when the restaurant opened its patio and upstairs deck, the dining area in the treetops quickly became the most sought-after spot, he says.
“The patio fills up first. People like to have a vantage point. When you’re up there, you can see down Jefferson Street, see the Grey Goose, Blue Heron next door,” Brewer says. “It feels like you’re in a clubhouse, a little spot that nobody knows how to get to. It feels VIP. It’s been great for parties.”
