Lexington is a happening place with some exciting new entertainment districts growing and thriving. Three major ones are the Pepper Distillery complex, Jefferson Street, and the National and Walton Avenue area. The latter is now known as Warehouse Block and features restaurants, gyms, a hair salon, jeweler, and much more. (Read my earlier blogs about specific businesses including Breakout Games and a Jeweler, Baker, and a Trumpeter.)

National Boulangerie, French Bakery

What a delightful afternoon I had with my fiancée Saturday, and all within walking distance of a few great neighborhoods…

Just around the corner from Kenwick, Mentelle Park and Bell Court lies a developing eclectic area with all kinds of fun surprises!  First we visited Designs Unlimited Fine Jewelers to look at rings! The welcome feeling walking into this merchant really felt like visiting a neighbor would. We then walked across to visit one of my wonderful repeat clients, Peter Pickett at  Pickett Brass.   Peter and his wife Kristen first lived in Kenwick many years ago, then ventured out of the area to live almost across from the KY Horse Park for a few years. But with the advent of their first child, and missing the lifestyle of walking everywhere, they decided to sell their home and move back to Kenwick again.  Peter’s business was also developing and he needed more space. He found that within walking distance to his new Kenwick home, where he could continue to make trumpet mouthpieces for greats such as Doc Severinsen.

Our last stop was at National Boulangerie, a French bakery that just started serving lunch. I had quiche Lorraine, while my wife-to-be had a quiche with goat cheese and sun-dried tomatoes. They each came with a side salad with shaved pear slices. We followed up with dessert and a delicious ham sandwich to go.

If you moved to Kenwick, Mentelle Park, or Bell Court, you could spend many Saturdays exploring the charming restaurants and retail merchants that dot the area. These neighborhoods are all very walkable and convenient to downtown Lexington. Homes for sale in Kenwick Mentelle Park and Bell Court neighborhoods range from $174,900 to $643,000.
