Brasabana offers a very tasty menu of Latin and Caribbean cuisine with a touch of southern comfort food. It has a really cool bar and even has a trivia game on Thursday nights. Fried plantain chips and salsa are a good appetizer. They offer craft...More

This outdoor/indoor restaurant serves good food amidst a casual atmosphere. The crisp plantain appetizers with salsa were a delicious treat to start off the evening. A sports channel was televised on screens throughout the dining area. While this may be appealing for some, I didn't...More

Description
Brasabana features Cuban cuisine that is naturally scented with the flavors of Latin America and the Caribbean (think plantains and slow braised pork). It will draw on the talents of Chef/Owner Miguel Rivas who hails from the Dominican Republic and trained as a culinary artist in New York City before locating to Lexington to be near family. It is a story of today’s global, mobile -- yet local reach -- that defines Brasabana.
