Heirloom Restaurant is well known among the locals in and around Lexington and Louisville. For those of you traveling to the Lexington area, it's well worth your effort to find the town of Midway and Heirloom. Who would think that one of Kentucky's best restaurants...More

Gluten free dining can be iffy in central Kentucky. You're often lucky if the restaurant has gluten free salad dressing (!) for your bowl of tired iceberg lettuce. I have been to Heirloom more than once now. The first time I went, they had gluten...More

What amazing and creative food! Charming! The chicken liver dish was a medley of wonderful textures and flavors! My husband had the Beef Bagogi (Korean sandwich) and it was also packed with great texture and flavors! We look forward to visiting again!

It's hard to find a soothing palette of beige and cream, much less one whose walls are adorned with whimsical, painting-size "cutouts"; whose backlit bar is simultaneously sleek, warm and inviting; and whose food doesn't allow the design to do all the work. But there's one place. Heirloom is Lexington's small-town neighbor with seriously sophisticated cuisine. Owned by chef Mark Wombles and his father, Henry, the restaurant came out of the gate in 2006 to acclaim. Its standard has remained high, with only occasional slips. Now, however, with Nicolas True blood — formerly of The Mansion at Griffin Gate — as chef de cuisine, Mark Wombles' original vision of using fresh, local ingredients to create Kentucky dishes with a global sensibility and a hint of California influence is being met and exalted.
