The Red Hen is Lexington’s first farm-to-table restaurant, featuring the bounty of the Shenandoah region’s most talented farmers. Each day we create a new menu based on the freshest and tastiest produce and meat, whether it is a ribeye steak from cattle raised by the Potter family, who have been farming in nearby Collierstown for seven generations, or a beet risotto using vegetables handpicked by Brendan Perry of Stonehouse Farm. This dedication to local food means each dish preserves the intricate flavors of the land. (It’s also good for the environment and our local economy.)

Thai International Cusine

Thai and International Cuisine in Lexington, Virginia, provides a break from the repetitiveness of traditional American dishes. The menu is full of offerings steeped in the culture and traditions of Thailand, where food presentation and taste were truly inspired by royalty. Tantalize your taste buds with the combination of salty, sweet, sour, and spicy, which come together to form the quintessential unique Thai taste. While dining at Thai and International Cuisine you can expect a personal dining experience. The staff, from server to chef, readily makes themselves available to offer recommendations or answer any questions you might have. The service is exceptional, and you will be treated like family from the moment you enter the newly renovated dining room. Every dish is made-to-order with the freshest ingredients and the attention to detail that only a truly passionate chef can provide. Thai food is meant to be shared with family and friends in celebration. In fact, dining alone is believed to be bad luck.
