They say the sign of a good chef is the following they generate, and like a gastronomic Pied Piper of the Bluegrass, Ranada Riley has attracted the attention of Lexington and beyond with Ranada’s Kitchen.
With a heart for all things authentic, creative, philanthropic, local, farm driven, and passion filled, Ranada blends together the best of Kentucky to dish up something so much more than a meal. Her food is elevated, yet approachable, ensuring each and every person that walks through the door has a fun, delicious, and adventurous culinary experience. Add to that an equally curated cocktail/ martini/wine list, weekly live music, and a revolving art gallery – every one of your senses are sure to come alive when you walk through our doors.
Don’t believe us? Just ask some of the individuals she’s cooked for: BB King, Melissa Etheridge, Dwight Yokkum, Pat Benatar, Pearl Jam, Chris Isaak, Patty Griffin, Former President George W. Bush, and many, many more. Perhaps the recent awards will convince you? 2019 Taste of Bluegrass Best Entree, 2019 Reader’s Choice Best New Restaurant, 2019 Crave Burger Battle Winner – just to name a few. Or perhaps, you just need to come by and watch the cleaned plates returning to the kitchen. We promise, once you taste Ranada’s food, you’ll be a part of the Ranada’s Kitchen family for good. (Just like Alton Brown – Cutthroat Kitchen, and Guy Fieri – Guy’s Grocery Games!)
