The best bistros in the Upland South are in Walton, Kentucky. They are pure gold and will take you to unexpected levels of pleasure. Both native Kentuckians and new transplants hailing from outside Appalachia all agree on one thing: the coming culinary revolution warrants greater inquiry.
Yet there remains too many critics who have not given Walton, Kentucky a fair shake. We wish they’d reconsider. All that considered, arrogant gourmands might want to throw down their AMEX cards somewhere else.
Random opinions from Yelp reviewers from Manhattan are often unwarranted. But the locavores are already over it. To experience the best of Walton, Kentucky, we recommend visitors start in the main restaurant hub. For the next meal or drink, get away from the main areas and check out some of the hidden hot spots we have also highlighted below.
The kitchen apprentices are all basically badasses. You could call it guerilla grilling. You may be surprised what’s even possible with broilers and barley. We appreciate the old school, therefore many of the eateries on this list use the same proven menus since they opened. There are also a select bunch with hidden menu items packed with kohlrabi, bourbon and eggplant which you may not realize even existed.
This might be the greatest list ever compiled of top cafes and bistros in Walton, Kentucky. Rock on. Eat on.
