Have I mentioned that I have really awesome brothers? Because I do.
Lyman has an internship in DC starting this week and before he left, Zach insisted that we do one final sibling thing, just the three of us. It really won’t ever be like this again, Team Stone against the world. Lyman will get back the day before my wedding and Zach heads of to UVA to start a PhD in the fall, and then I plan on being pretty tied to James.
Dinner options in Lexington are vastly improving, as what used to be a redneck capital is increasingly a mecca for yuppies and hipsters. In fact, our waiter informed us that Lexington is ranked #1 in the nation for best cities to open a new restaurant. What can I say, we really like to eat. We had been planning on going to the new Table 310, but Memorial Day closings led us instead to the just-opened Shakespeare and Company. (No, not that Shakespeare and Company.)
Looking at these pictures, you should be thinking, how did Lexington end up with a restaurant that is half Ladurée, half Arabian Nights, and all class? This is a good question. The answer is that the restaurant is based out of Dubai, spawned by unabashed love of Paris, and then dashed with a little British tea room feeling. The sheik of Dubai or someone equally important has horse farms near Lexington and decided he wanted his awesome restaurant here. Or so I am told.
