Lexington

We are so excited to bring our sharing-style dining to the historic city of Lexington, KY, at The Summit at Fritz Farm! Lexington was designed in the shape of a wheel with spokes… think of a wagon wheel, like what would be on a horse-drawn carriage.  Lexington is the Horse Capital of the world, so it makes sense! Babalu is thrilled to be on one of the wheel’s spokes!  So, saddle up and come sit and relax on our patio while you enjoy a hand-crafted cocktail or glass of bourbon, we are in Kentucky after all!  We look forward to serving you some of our many chef-inspired, hand-prepared tapas dishes or tacos for you to share with your friends and family at one of our community tables. Our open kitchen and fun atmosphere is sure to be an unforgettable dining experience.
