Fusion / Eclectic | Lexington, Lexington

This is probably our fourth time dining at Coles. We often bring our out of town guests here for the great food with emphasis on local products, great service, and charming ambiance. I can't seem to order anything but the filet mignon--it is melt-in-your mouth good--but better than that, it comes with "grit tots," which are brilliant! Love Coles. Have never been disappointed.
