When we were in Kentucky, I wrote about the Ambassador Day at Makers Mark on day two of our visit. One of the great things about that day was the amazing greek food we had from Athenian Grill in Lexington and their booth on the food court there. Now Athenian Grill is working to open a permanent location in Lexington, and has turned to Kickstarter for funding. While most of the awards for backers are only going to be valuable to people in the Lexington area, the $50 reward includes shipping of their scratch-made pastries anywhere in the U.S.
If you are in Lexington, or really anywhere in Eastern Kentucky, I encourage you to consider supporting Illias in getting this restaurant built, you will love his food and his passion.
