It's a beautiful snowy day outside, and it's cozy and warm inside the Red Hen. The city has done a nice job clearing the streets, and conditions seem to be improving, so it promises to be a lovely night in historic downtown Lexington.

Tonight (Thursday) and Friday we will be open for business as usual starting at 5 pm. In addition to the regular menu (see below) Chef Collin is offering two Snowday Specials:

Local Lamb Shepherd’s Pie ($18)
mashed potatoes, side salad of fresh greens

Buffalo Creek Flat Iron Steak ($20)
rosti potato cake, mustard greens, caramelized onions

As an added incentive, we're offering anyone who comes in tonight or tomorrow a warming beverage of your choice—on us.

Come downtown and enjoy the Christmas lights, the beautiful snow, and a memorable evening at the Red Hen.
