Dudley’s on Short is #LocallyLexington

Friday, October 30, 2020

When you think of iconic Lexington restaurants, one that probably comes top of mind is Dudley’s on Short. This Lexington staple has been creating a one-of-a-kind culinary experience in Downtown Lexington since 1981.

Named Southern Living’s “Best of the South” Restaurant: Kentucky in 2017 and 2019, this award-winning restaurant is a favorite for locals and visitors alike.

In the wake of COVID-19, restaurants have had to make major changes to reopen safely while adhering to the new guidelines. To help with this, the Downtown Lexington Management District and the Downtown Lexington Partnership created a Reopening and Recovery Grant Program for downtown businesses to assist with things such as replacement of inventory, expansion of outdoor seating and the purchase of PPE materials. Kinetic by Windstream also partnered to provide a matching technology grant to recipients, including a technology audit and a solutions roadmap to help businesses select the best technology to continue to connect with their customers during this time. 

We’re proud to announce that Dudley’s is one of the recipients of the DLMD and DLP Reopening and Recovery Grant, along with the matching technology grant from Kinetic by Windstream.

Right now, you can stop in Dudley’s for dinner – Sunday thru Saturday from 5-10 p.m. Executive chef, Mark Richardson, has created Chef’s Nightly Features, so be sure to check their website daily for an updated menu. Their charming rooftop patio is also perfect for a date night or a cocktail during their social hour, with drink specials Monday thru Friday from 4-6 p.m.

Dudley’s is truly part of what makes Lexington a great place to live and to visit. Dudley’s is #LocallyLexington.
