New in Town!
If you love Lexington’s Miyako concepts (and who doesn’t?), there’s even more good news for Lexington’s Asian Cuisine Scene. Miyako owner Andy Chi has opened a ramen and donburi concept, Zundo Izakaya in the former Outback space on Tiverton, just off Nicholasville Road. (Outback left the space for new digs at Fayette Mall in 2019.)
One superfan reports that Zundo’s “sushi chef was an apprentice chef for two years at a two-star Michelin restaurant in NYC, and that explains so much.”
The menu includes ramen, Japanese BBQ skewers, sushi, and poke bowls.
Chrisman Mill Winery Closes
Chrisman Mill Winery hosted their final events in October, after sunsetting the business.
The owners announced they would be closing after 25 years of winemaking, adding, “We have decided to slow down a bit and move back to Texas, and although we have tried for the past year to find new owners to take our little experiment forward, we just have not been successful at doing so.”
Things wound down “just the way we started” at the Jessamine Fall Festival in downtown Nicholasville.
Remaining wines and spirits may be available for sale online for a limited time.
The Winery once operated a popular tasting room and shop in Hamburg on Sir Barton.
