How it works

Beginning today, we will host several voting rounds within our newsletters and social channels to determine Lexington’s best classic restaurant. Who moves on is up to you. Vote for your favorites, and the classic restaurant with more votes moves on. Simple as that. We’ll go until we have a champion, which will be announced in our Wed., March 23 newsletter. You will be able to vote once per round.

How to participate

Vote for the classic restaurant you’d like to see advance to round two using this poll. You can vote for all four spots or as little as one. Once we count all the votes, we’ll share an updated bracket and new poll in an upcoming newsletter.
