The Glitz Restaurant ReviewBy
The Glitz Restaurant is located in Nonesuch, Kentucky which is near Lexington. Jake and I went there with my parents as part of a day trip on a staycation (link) we were on. The Glitz is open for lunch Tuesday through Saturday, it is a three course meal for $19.95 and reservations are required. They change the menu bi-weekly so there is always something different to choose from. As soon as we were seated, we were served the spiced apple refresher which was delicious. It was served in chilled champagne glasses and the bottom was ice with a cherry frozen inside. When we were there, for the appetizer course the choices were Irish potato soup, crab or avacodo appetizers. The main entree was salmon en croute or chicken lasagna florentine, both served with a salad and The Glitz’s signature poppy seed salad dressing. For dessert we could choose from the Nonesuch kiss which is their signature dessert of jamoca ice cream, meringue, chocolate fudge and almonds. The peach melba crepes or wild berry sorbet were the other selections.
I chose the potato soup for my appetizer and it was creamy and delicious. The chicken lasagna florentine was my entree and it was excellent. It was very flavorful and hearty. The salad was also wonderful and I liked the poppy seed dressing so much, that I bought a bottle of it. The peach melba crepes dessert was also excellent. It was served with a small shortbread cookie and scoop of vanilla ice cream. The service was good for the most part but did drag a little toward the end. We had to wait a bit for our check.
The restaurant is decorated beautifully, it is really hard to describe. It is somewhat dark and the ambiance is nice. There are a lot of clear glass globes and decorative white lights on the ceiling and give it almost a fairy tale look. Overall, our visit to The Glitz was a good one and definitely something I would recommend.
